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 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

Some of our services include:

Looking for a Dentist in Plainsboro?

Finding the best dentist near you starts with three things: asking your friends for referrals, finding a dentist that takes your dental insurance, and visiting them personally to find out if they’re a good “fit.”

Our dental practice, conveniently located where Plainsboro, Princeton and West Windsor, NJ, meet, accepts most major dental insurance plans. Even if we aren’t in network with your insurance carrier, we can still file claims on your behalf for out of network benefits. Our prices are competitive enough that your cost of your care isn’t much different than seeing a dentist that’s in network!

Plus, we’re open Saturdays! If you’re in pain or need to make an appointment on the weekend because you can’t get away from work, our practice can accommodate your specific scheduling needs. We’re also available after hours if you’re in pain and require immediate emergency treatment.

Putting Families First

Everyone’s smile is unique. Whether you never had access to dental care growing up or you’re ready to invest in that life-changing smile makeover, our dentist Dr. Bestandji will meet you where you are now and help to make your best smile a reality.

If you require treatment, our team will explain all of the options to you so that you can make an educated decision about which steps to take. Our recommendations will always be the same that we would suggest to our own friends and family members.

About Plainsboro

Many of our new patients are professionals, families, and retirees that have recently moved to the area. The Plainsboro Township is home to beautiful outdoor recreation areas for hiking, cycling, fishing, and more. For an immersion lesson in the community, be sure to check out the Princeton Tour Company. The Pennsylvania Dutch Farmers Market is a great place to hit up for home baked goods like Amish pretzels. For bad-weather days, the Princeton University Art Museum has something for everyone. If being outdoors is more of your thing, the Plainsboro Preserve and Lenape Trail should be at the top of your to-do list!

Technologically Advanced Dentistry

Incorporating advanced techniques allows us to provide the highest quality care in the gentlest atmosphere. We’ve invested in resources like laser dentistry to provide minimally-invasive treatments like soft tissue gingivectomies (gum recontouring) for gummy smiles and cold sore treatment.

With dental lasers, we’re able to treat your affected gum tissues without any lingering discomfort. In fact, there’s relatively no bleeding or swelling following your minimally invasive procedure. Laser treatments speed up the healing process and allow us to apply extreme accuracy on small areas of tissue.

Additionally, our imaging resources include digital X-rays and intraoral cameras. Now, you can see the same thing that our dentists do. As we examine your teeth and gums, we’ll share images of our findings with you. You can co-diagnose and co-plan your way to a healthier smile, because you’ll have the same information at your fingertips.

Have a Toothache?

From treating the smallest of cavities to performing complex endodontic therapy, Canal Vista Family Dental strives to help each of our patients retain their natural teeth for as long as possible. After treating your cavity or dental abscess, we’ll share resources to help you prevent recurrent infections from developing.

But if you do need to have a tooth pulled, we can help too. Our dental implant options are available for single missing teeth, multiple tooth restorations like bridges, and even full mouth denture stabilization. Traditional denture designs are available too.

When to See a Dentist

Healthy patients should plan to schedule a dental exam and cleaning at least every six months. During your appointment, Dr. Bestandji will perform a thorough exam, oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, and a cleaning. If you have active gum disease, we recommend a periodontal maintenance visit every 3-4 months after your periodontal therapy is completed.
