When I experienced a dental emergency I called several dental offices in the area. Canal Vista Family Dental was the first to call me back, and they were able to see me right away. Their competent and compassionate team immediately made me feel welcome. I’ve definitely never felt so at ease during a dental procedure before. Highly recommend!!

Convenient location to Princeton, NJ. Check in was easy as forms can be filled out in advanced online. Receptionist was helpful and polite. Dental hygienist was friendly, knowledgeable, precise and thorough. She was efficient with the machines. Dentist was professional and thorough and she kindly showed me a few issues on the panoramic x-ray. She also gave me a referral to check on an issue. Place has up-to-date equipment and had COVID protocol in place. Scheduled my 6 month. Definitely going back.

Recent update: This past weekend, the crown on my implant became detached after an encounter with a sticky vitamin gummy. I called to book an appointment and was able to secure a 9 am Monday slot. Although my issue occurred on Saturday while the office was closed, Dr. Bestandji nonetheless reached out by phone to check in with me to determine if the situation was more of an emergency. This wasn't an emergency but I certainly appreciate Dr. Bestandji taking personal time out of her weekend to call me. I saw her first thing on Monday and was in the chair only a few minutes after arrival. Dr. Bestandji, cleaned any residual old cement from my crown and implant post and re-cemented the crown. As with my previous visit, I was done in around 35 minutes. I'm going to be a bit more gentle with my nightly flossing from here on so that I don't have to prevail upon Dr. Bestandji again within another couple of months. But very grateful to be a patient of this outstanding doctor and her wonderful dental practice.I recently had an old filling fall apart while flossing one evening. I called first thing the next morning and was able to get a 10 am spot with Dr. Bestandji. And I was in the chair just a few minutes after 10. Per all of the other reviews here, Dr. Bestandji is an excellent dentist with a pleasant, friendly demeanor. Clad in protective head gear that you might see in a movie about a raging pandemic (!), Dr. Bestandji got to work right away. Her pediatric experience means that she knows how to expertly wield that syringe when numbing your mouth (fear not, needle-wary adults). She removed the remainder of my disintegrating filling, re-filled the cavity, and contoured the surface so that there was absolutely no bite discomfort. All in the space of about 35 minutes. Sure, this was just a filling but dental health is extremely important to overall health and I was very grateful to have my tooth fixed the very next day and in short order by this wonderful doctor. We are recent arrivals to Princeton and are very glad to have picked Canal Vista Family Dental and Dr. Bestandji for our dental care.

I took my daughter there for her first visit to the dentist ever and it went remarkably well. The staff is very courteous and friendly. I was apprehensive as she had to get a procedure but the dentist and her assistant are amazing at what they do and my daughter left super happy. Never thought it would go so well!

I used to dread going to the dentist but I don’t have to anymore. They are the nicest group of people; every single one of them has been warm and friendly from the moment I walk in the door. They always check to make sure that I’m doing okay during my visit and that I’m comfortable. And they always take me into the room right away. I’ve never waited more than a few minutes. It’s hard finding a good dentist but this is a great one.

I LOVE this practice <3 Dr. Bestandji and her whole team are so friendly and kind! Dr. Bestandji is an amazing, amazing dentist. She is so kind, patient, compassionate, and understanding!After having bad experiences with previous dentists, I was slightly traumatized and very scared to go back to any dentist. Dr. Bestandji has such amazing bedside manner that my anxieties completely disappeared! And on top of that—she’s genuinely a top-tier, very skilled dentist! She fixed my finicky and painful problem tooth, AND always pays so much attention to details during follow up visits. It makes me feel comfortable and confident in her care :)Definitely come here for the BEST quality treatment you’ll ever have! Thank you Dr. Bestandji :)

This office is conveniently located near the Market Fair Mall in Princeton NJ. The office is very clean and inviting. The staff is very professional, friendly and very Helpful. I took my 7 years old daughter for a canine extraction because she needs a Lower Expander, and Dr. Bestandji was very patient, caring and detailed. My daughter did not even know when Dr. B took her tooth out. I am very thankful that Dr. Bestandji because she made my daughter’s dental experience unbelievable. My daughter was even laughing with Dr. B’s jokes.I highly recommend this office for any Dental Work. Dr. Bestandji is very professional, detail and knowledgeable.Thank you Dr. Bestandji, I really appreciate all your work

Out of The Office

After our Princeton dental office closes for the day, Dr. Bestandji enjoys spending her time with her husband and two children, a son and a daughter. She has many interests and hobbies to pursue with them, including cooking, traveling, swimming, and shopping, as well as her lifetime love of art and sculpture. But her patients might be surprised to find out that Dr. Bestandji is also a lover of thrilling experiences, like zip lining! She’s also fluent in multiple languages, including French and Arabic. And here’s another interesting tidbit: she’s one of the 10% of New Jersey population who is left handed!

A Commitment to Excellence

Dr. Bestandji loves the area around Princeton, New Jersey.  Between its rich culture, vibrant multiculturalism, and location near New York City and Philadelphia, she determined it was the perfect place to put down professional roots.  In early 2017, she purchased Canal Vista Family Dental from its the previous owner, who established a practice in our location over 25 years ago. With this small, family dental office, she strives to provide the highest standard of care while incorporating excellent materials choices for all of her patients.

Are you looking for a new family dentist or are in the middle of one of many dental emergencies? Call our office in Princeton today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bestandji. We look forward to meeting you!
