Springer Nature Group acquires specialist e-learning platform Dentallect

London | Dordrecht, 4 February 2021

Bohn Stafleu van Loghum (BSL), part of Springer Nature Group, has this week completed the acquisition of Dentallect, a Netherlands-based e-learning platform that specialises in training for dental assistants.

Marieke Cambeen, Managing Director of BSL said: “Dentallect’s courses are used in dental practices and vocational institutions across the Netherlands and so is an excellent fit with our existing BSL textbooks business. We are looking forward to extending the platform further.”

The company was founded in 2012 by Sherif El Boushy, a professional dentist, out of a need to improve the training of dental assistants in the Netherlands.
