Catherine Deamus is an alum of Douglass College (Class of ’70), who grew up in New Brunswick, the daughter of a dentist who practiced in town. When she heard Rutgers was opening a dental practice on Somerset Street, she quickly booked an appointment.
As she settled into the dentist’s chair at Rutgers Health University Dental Associates, Deamus said, “I feel like I’ve come home.”
Area residents and members of the Rutgers community are invited to visit the practice’s new office on April 19, when it will be hosting an Open House from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Located at 135 Somerset Street, on the ground level of the Aspire building, Rutgers Health University Dental Associates is blocks from RU’s College Avenue Campus.
Providers are faculty at the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, who treat patients directly in a private practice setting rather than overseeing students. They offer a full range of expert care, from family dentistry to complex, specialty needs. Skilled in the latest treatment techniques, staff keep abreast of the best and newest evidence-based research.
Deamus sought treatment at Rutgers Health University Dental Associates because she wanted experienced care from trustworthy providers after her long-time dentist retired. “I knew I needed a lot of work, and the people there seemed like they would have the most recent technology and be on top of new developments because they’re at a university,’’ she said. “I liked that all the specialties were under one roof.’’
So far, Deamus has been pleased with the care she’s received during initial visits and is ready for dental implant procedures to begin. “Everyone there has been very nice and compassionate,’’’ she said.
The New Brunswick office of Rutgers Health University Dental Associates joins the practice’s Newark location at the Doctor’s Office Center at 90 Bergen Street. It accepts most insurance plans.
