Rane’s group of dental offices has become a home for all phases of dentistry serving children and adults in Plainsboro and surrounding areas. Their mission statement is “To provide exclusive dental care by the best team of healthcare advisors, creating lasting relationships with you and your referrals and ultimately providing you 200 percent satisfaction.” In keeping with this mission they have general dentists and specialists on board at two locations right across from each other, eliminating the need to travel all over town for dental treatment while providing for the constantly growing demand for their services.
Rane’s Exclusively Yours Dental is the parent office providing mainstream General Dentistry and Sedation while Rane’s Dental Aesthetics is their specialty office providing Orthodontics, Periodontics, Implant Surgery, and Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Janhavi Rane, President and CEO of the Rane’s Dental Group, is a long-time resident of Plainsboro where she lives with her husband and three children. She has a bachelor’s in biology and psychology from Rutgers — the State University, and dental training from New York University, Harvard School of Dentistry, and Newark Beth Israel Hospital. She also serves on the Human Relations Council Committee of Plainsboro Township and is the president of The Mercer County Dental Society.
Dr. Rane says, “It has always been our attempt to give our patients all the services they need in order to make their dental visits as stress free as possible because that’s the only way they will be motivated to come. According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS Education), a professional organization dedicated to ensuring that patients receive safe, comfortable and anxiety-free dental care, 30 percent of the population avoids the dentist due to fear. This all-too-common “dental phobia” prevents people from receiving necessary routine dental care, potentially compromising the health and functionality of their mouth and smile.”
At Rane’s Exclusively Yours Dental, Sedation Dentistry has eliminated that problem. Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the use of sedatives. Sedative drugs (tranquillizers, depressants, anti-anxiety medications, nitrous oxide, etc.) can be administered in a variety of ways. “At our practice we have a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, Dr. Glen Atlas, M.D. who administers the sedative through an IV putting you to sleep so you can have all your dentistry done in one visit with no pain, no fear, and in a perfectly safe manner while a physician and a dentist monitor you all along. After it’s done you just wake up and don’t remember anything. Sedation can help you deal with dental phobias so you can get the treatments you need whether they are routine or cosmetic dentistry.”
Sedation dentistry is not just for the dental phobics. Rane’s dental offices see a lot of special needs patients and children for sedation dentistry. “It’s actually a big relief for parents to see their kids sleeping peacefully and getting all their dental work done in a safe and painless environment rather than seeing them screaming and crying never wanting to come to the dentist again,” says Dr. Rane. Getting all their dental treatment done in one visit under sedation is most in demand for children because parents don’t need to take out time from work for multiple visits. The child wakes up with no memory of the dental work done, and everyone goes home happy. “We block out longer appointments for sedation patients so as to accommodate any additional work they may want or if they want their cleanings done while they are asleep too.”
If you are reluctant to change the appearance of your smile because you are afraid or anxious about undergoing long or complicated dental procedures, sedation dentistry can make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve a smile you can be proud of.
Apart from Sedation Dentistry the offices together with their five doctors, Dr. Janhavi Rane, DDS; Dr. Pradeep Sukumar, DMD; Dr. John Cuozzo, DMD, MS; Dr. Robert Conti, DMD; and Dr. Glen Atlas, MD, provide all types of dental treatment to children, adults and seniors in a high tech, classy and comfortable environment participating in most of the major dental insurances.
