Hospital for nailbiters


The city of Venlo will get a clinic specifically to cure nail biters from their destructive habit, reports daily De Volkskrant (Dutch). A treatment at the so-called O Centrum (Onychophagia Centre) takes two hours. The clinic started last month, and opens its doors officially in September. “Patients” will get to wear a type of mouth guard, the Preventor, that, er, should prevent them from biting their nails.


  1. I would like to know the address/ phone number / email of this centre.

  2. According to the Dutch article, it is scheduled to open in September, so then they will make their address known. It will be in Venlo, Limburg.
