General Dentistry Princeton, NJ
At Elite Dental Care, We Treat You Like Family
Earning Trust – One Patient at a Time
Our first goal, from the moment you walk in the door, is to earn a feeling of trust. Our family dentist believes the absolute best dentistry we can provide will only take place when there is a strong bond of trust with our patients, and we’re all working together toward the common goals of healthy teeth and gums and a beautiful smile.
Dentistry For Adults

The Risks and Realities of Oral Cancer
One American dies every hour from oral cancer, and the mortality rate has remained virtually unchanged for 40 years. Early detection is so important, because it means a 90% cure rate. To help us ensure your complete oral health, we are pleased to provide highly effective oral cancer screenings using the FDA-approved oral cancer screening system, VELscope™. This tool uses a specially designed light that makes any suspicious tissue immediately and easily visible during your exam. This screening could literally save your life!
Oral health can have a far bigger impact on a person’s life than regular cleanings and the occasional filling can address. Many patients who’ve dealt with injury, illness, bite problems, and simple wear and tear can have chronic problems such as tooth grinding, TMJ, periodontitis, crooked or misshapen teeth, and missing teeth. The result can be headaches and migraines, toothaches, chronic bad breath, and an unattractive appearance. But you don’t have to live like that. Dr. Ranu will present options for a treatment plan to address your issues and achieve a healthy, pain-free, beautiful smile.
Protect Your Teeth During Sports
Did you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States alone? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protection. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores just don’t fit very well. Custom-made sports mouthguards fit well, protect well, and can be worn for any sport.
The ICON™ Method for Tooth Decay
Dr. Ranu believes the best dentistry is the least dentistry, and we are pleased to utilize the philosophy of “microinvasive dentistry” with the ICON method. Of course, the traditional way to treat decay and restore teeth with fillings is perfectly valid. One drawback is the loss of healthy tooth structure during treatment. The ICON method allows tooth decay to be treated very early, which means no drilling! Many patients never even need local anesthetic, and it’s completely painless.
Beautiful Dentures for Confident Smiles
If you’re looking for affordable dentures for missing teeth, Dr. Ranu can design and fit beautiful-looking dentures that don’t slip! She is skilled at fitting the denture so well that you don’t have to worry about the foods you’re eating or that your dentures might shift when you talk.
Dr. Ranu works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. The amazing intra-oral camera is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!
Traditional dental X-rays have been “good enough,” but digital X-rays provide clearer and much more accurate pictures of what’s going on inside a patient’s mouth. This makes it easier for the doctor to diagnose issues. Leaks or breaks in fillings that used to go unnoticed, often leading to root canals, can now be found and treated before major damage is done. We can also view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, with panoramic digital images.
