Meet the Team at Gentle Hands Dental Care

At Gentle Hands Dental Care, get ready to experience dentistry in Princeton and Hamilton Township in a whole new way!

Our mission is to help improve our patients’ quality of life by helping them achieve and maintain excellent oral health and a beautiful smile. As a small dental practice, Dr. Rae Van Natta and our team can connect with you in a way that other large dental clinics in our area can’t.

We’re different because we focus on one-on-one interactions and core values like trust, integrity, and honesty. Our dental team puts you at ease by taking the time to get to know you so we can understand what your oral health goals are and how we can best help you.

Doing so helps you develop faith in us to provide the best that dentistry has to offer in a manner that fits your unique needs. By providing you with gentle, personalized care, achieving and maintaining excellent oral health becomes something you want to do, not something you have to do.

The décor of our dental office also lends itself to a comfortable, stress-free experience. Our office is clean and cheerful with homey touches and soothing colors that help put you at ease. There are bright windows and TVs in every treatment room so you can catch up on the latest news or watch your favorite program.

If you're looking for a family dentist who is gentle and goes above and beyond to help you, we look forward to welcoming you to Gentle Hands Dental Care. Please take a few moments to get to know our team, then call us at (609) 452-7222 for an appointment.

My experience with Gentle Hans Dental Care is very comfortable and enjoyable

My experience with Gentle Hans Dental Care is very comfortable and enjoyable. Dr. Van Natta is an experienced, skilled and very patient dentist who focuses on every details, so she spends more time to discussing treatment options and preventive protection with me. These are things I've never experienced before. Dr. van Natta's team's professional service is also excellent.

I have been to here several times, I found that Dr. Van Natta is also an outstanding designer and artist. Her simple and modern decoration style and professional medical equipment reflect her Re- understanding of clinics and patients. Of course, the charge is also very reasonable. I highly recommend Dr. Van Natta and her Gentle Hans Dental Care.
