I have been coming to Dr Thind for almost 3 months. I must say that my experience has been fantastic. I would recommend this facility to anyone looking for pain free treatment option. I have had 1 RCT and 2 fillings here, besides regular cleaning. Also my wife and parents have been here and happy with the services provided. Keep up the good work Academy Dental !

I have been going to Academy Dental for three years now and every one of my experiences has been superior to anywhere else. The facility is modern and exceptionally clean. The staff is knowledgeable and will go beyond to make sure everything is financially taken care of in the best way they can. In the three years that I have been going, I have not paid for a single procedure. I really cannot put down in words how excellent this place is. I recommend it to anyone that I speak to. Thank you Academy Dental for making me feel comfortable and confident and ending my search for the perfect dentist. It’s been a long road of nightmare experiences everywhere else between the cost and mediocre work. -Ashley G

First i visited during thanksgiving for severe pain and they gave me medicine and told to visit again for root canal after week time. Second visit was also fine but unfortunately i had swelling after cleanup so i had to visit again next day for checkup. I have one more appointment on 22 and hopefully this will be final one. Good experience so far with doctors as well as staff.

Thank you again to the team of Academy Dental , they are clean , professional and know their work . Taking time with your patients is highly important. Making the whole family involved is great as well, having children with special needs that are allowed to be exposed to seeing a total calming and wonderful working together environment gives them a sense of calmness for future visits with a dentist . My husband had his second visit for root scaling and he feels better already.. Sincerly The Perez’s

I had a wonderful experience today at Academy Dental. This was my first time here, and the staff was very friendly, and accommodated me. I called today to make an appointment due to a tooth ache, and they said that they could take me in an hour. Once we found out what was wrong, they even started the procedure. I am very impressed with the way this office is run and am very happy with my visit. Dr. Nauleen and her assistant Ameeta were very knowledgeable and sweet. There is nothing I could complain about. I will be going to this place from now on.

This is by far the best dentist I have ever went to. With such professionalism, care, and technique doctor Thind. The staff here goes above and beyond what you could want in a dentist. I’m a big advocate for strong dental hygiene, and they leave you seeing the value of keeping your teeth healthy. Patricia the dental assistant is such a kind soul, and really cares for her patients. Between Doctor Thind and Patricia I have found a great team that I plan on keeping as my dentists!

Luis M. from Princeton, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr Navleen and the rest of the staff at Academy rental are really great . They treat patients respectfully and provide clear and reliable information about the treatment and procedure they will follow with each patient upon arrival. The layout of the office is very impressive and modern, the equipment looks new and very sofisticated. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Academy Dental to my friends that live around the area.

I love Academy Dental affordable prices, also with no insurance they have a affordable dental plan for their office. This place isn’t just great for us it’s also amazing for our children. I love and die by Academy Dental and Dr. Thind also all the women at the front desk and helping are amazing and just genuinely nice.

I had great experience with my work-in visit. I really was impressed with high level of service and friendliness of everyone in office. My dentist was very professional, very skilled, friendly and made me feel confident and safe during treatment. Everything was explained in details what to do after the treatment. I am glad to find this dental practice and would highly recommend AcademyDental to all my friends. Thank you very much!

Loved Dr Thind, great Dentist, listened to me and my concerns and asked me what I wanted to work on first. She agreed to work with me on my front teeth. All the girls in her office have amazing personalitys. Also Amita her Dental Assistent they were all very gentle and kind. I highly recommend Academy Dental.

From entering until exiting, a visit with Dr. Thind is a wonderful experience. The front of the house staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Thind is personable, gentle and communicates will with the patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Thind and Academy Dental to anyone looking for a dentist.

The staff there was incredibly friendly and welcoming. It my family and mine’s first time at Academy Dental and I honestly can’t wait to come back. They were extremely informative and patient, answering all of my questions. I also truly appreciate the protective glasses they had me wear during my cleaning. I never had any other dental place do that and I was thankful they did. This is the BEST dental clinic I’ve ever been to. Can’t wait for my next appointment!

Was very busy when I went in but the staff helped me out to the best of their ability. Everyone was very friendly. The dr. gave me a bruise due to being numb in my gum but that was on accident. Otherwise, would completely recommend. Easy, friendly and professional staff.

The doctor & staff are very kind & friendly. I enjoy the “spa” atmosphere of relaxing music & calming programming on the TV screens, I tend to get very stressed at dental appointments, but not here. I stay relaxed and calm. I highly recommend Dr Thind!

Eastern Dental, the first dental facility I tried to obtain services from, declined me as a patient because of insurance issues, even though they were listed in my insurance company’s Provider Directory. Another dental facility told me flat out they couldn’t help me with my dental issues. Then, I sought help from Academy Dental and what a relief it was to have obtained quality service from Academy’s outstanding professionals. I was immediately evaluated and treated with the best customer service ever! Excellent bedside manner! Not only does Academy have excellent professionals, they have a very comfortable waiting area. I remember thinking to myself, “Wow! These chairs are really comfortable!” Not that I had to sit in them that long waiting to be served. Two thumbs up! I recommend them as a dental service provider. Way to go Academy Dental team!!!

I had the good fortune to find Dr. Naveen as she was just opening up this practice. I’ve spent years skipping dental visits after a particularly bad one and I had just moved to the area. So I gave her practice a shot and it was the best decision I could have ever made. She was very kind and didn’t chastise me for my avoidance of seeing anyone. Just got me set up with a plan to get my teeth properly sorted over the next few months and didn’t scare me off during any of that time. I don’t dread the six month cleaning anymore, I feel very at ease coming into the office and getting my teeth taken care of. I’ve recommended the place to my employees and close friends, those that have checked it out thanked me for introducing them to Dr. Naveen. I highly recommend you schedule an appointment if you are looking for a new Dentist!

My family and I have been extremely happy with the service we have received, from extractions and root canals to simple cleanings, we couldn’t be happier with the care we have received. Very friendly office staff and appointments available quickly. We highly recommend this dentist!

I’m so grateful to have found Academy Dental especially because I didn’t have dental insurance. Everyone here is so incredibly helpful, patient and kind. They also are very flexible in the way they allow you to pay in installments. I love this place… you should definitely check them out. Tracy

10 / 10 would recommend this office ! The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The assistant, April was AMAZING with my 6 year old son. She was so patient with him and quick with getting his x rays taken. She explained everything she saw and answered any questions I had. The doctor was personable and made my son feel so comfortable. The rooms were so organized and clean, as well as updated and spacious. Excited to have finally found a good place in the area!

Alysa N. from Trenton, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Navleen bedside manner was very professional and comforting. She is great about listening to any concerns you may have or any recommendations. She is gentle while checking your teeth and cleaning. The receptionist and dental assistants are very nice, friendly and helpful as well as knowledgeable. Office hours are convenient and scheduling apppointments as well. Office is very clean. This was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this office to anyone.

James L. from Trenton, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I am an old patient of Dr. Thind. I have never felt nervous or uneasy about my treatment visit with Dr. Thind. She is very straightforward and provides a clear, simple explanation of the treatment to be performed. Even has at times shown me a small educational video about the treatment on her Ipad so that I understand what work will be done on my teeth, which is something I really appreciated. Keep up the great work!

Best dentist office in town. I was there for an emergency on a Saturday morning. Front dest staffs greated me and they take me as awalking( eventhough appointment is necessary) . I was treated by DR Kaur who was very proffessional and took care of me .the dental assistant Ameeta was nice, offered to answer any questions that i might have. For sure will come back again. Keep the good work you are doing.

Just had a first visit for a check-up and cleaning. The building was very clean, and the staff were professional and courteous. Academy Dental doesn’t have the feeling of a cozy family practice, but it’s also definitely doesn’t feel like a ‘big business’ out to rob you with unnecessary services. Had a bit of a wait (but that’s to be expected at any doctor’s office), but otherwise, no complaints. I will continue going here, and I recommend Academy Dental.

While doing research to find a good dentist in the area, I came across Academy Dental and the reviews were wonderful. They accommodated my son, my husband and myself for a first time appointment and even though we waited a while to be seen, it was worthwhile. Everyone is very friendly and considerate. I was very anxious and the employee who took the x-rays was very considerate and gentle.

Jag M. from Princeton, NJ (Source: Yelp)


My visiting relatives got sick all of a sudden with tooth problem. My own dentist was ready to do the action; that is root canal at a cost of $2500. Academy dental was recommended by one of our friends and we went there for a second opinion. Dr. Navleen was super friendly and and took X-Rays of the tooth. She showed us that the tooth already has a big hole in there and there is no point of doing a root canal and crowning. She  gave her enough pain killers so she can go through the day and and we her tooth remove dona follow up visits. They were always professional, on top of their appointment times and best of all, listens to the patients.

If you’re looking for a wonderful dental experience, Academy Dental facility in East Orange is the best place to go. The staff is knowledgeable, gentle and warm. Doctors’ shah take enough time to provide me with great dental services. I really did not feel any pain when doctor shah assists me during my treatment, will definitely come back anytime for further dental treatments…Thank you for the amazing dental service.

I would highly recommend this place to anybody. It’s been the absolute best dental experience in a very long time. They treat you like a person, a individual that they want to listen to and help, address your concerns, explain everything and find a way to accommodate your needs. This is the only place I will go to from now on.

Best dentist I have seen so far. Was able to schedule my visit and seen right away. They are nice and respect your time. I have been putting away work for long but after seeing Dr Thind, I feel comfortable to get those started here. She was very thorough and explained me the steps that will be taken, the best part being they are able to provide me a payment plan to help me getting initiated. I am happy I was able to find them

Amanda Edwards (Source: Google)


This was my first time going to to Academy Dental and it was a great experience. The wait was not long at all. The staff were very nice and friendly. The hygienist was very nice and kept making sure I was okay. Also Dr. Thind was very nice and was even going to fill one of my cavities the day of. Very friendly and efficient, not a pushy, commercial dentist at all.

Tracy J Spencer (Source: Google)


After having a bad experience with another dental practice (I’m sure you can guess which one), I was referred here and I’m so glad I came! The office is spacious and clean and the staff is friendly, efficient and professional. The dentists know what they are doing. I had a root canal started and lost the temporary piece TWICE and they graciously accommodated me almost immediately to replace it each time. Not every dentist can be trusted with my teeth. I trust the dentists at Academy.

Jason D (Source: Zocdoc)


I am in the process of my first root canal therapy. Dr. Thind and her staff have been incredibly caring and considerate. My first visit was an emergency, and I was seen, with very little wait, on a Sunday! I would highly recommend Dr. Thind to anyone seeking dental care

I’m new to this area and dental office and i must say everyone is extremely super nice, caring and professional. Sarah at check in is absolutely wonderful, friendly, caring and very helpful. The facility is super clean, spacious and well maintained. I absolutely love this dental facility, honest top notch customer services with caring, friendly and professional staff. What more can you ask for. I highly recommend ACADEMY DENTAL in Hamilton, Nj.

The staff at this practice are top notch. I was seen the same day for an emergency appointment. I was in severe pain, anxiety ridden from the pain and the embarrassment of having a mouth full of broken, chipped teeth when I arrived at the office and every staff member of the practice went out of there way to make me feel good. Simply put the were kind to me, treated me with respect and stopped my pain. I have never felt so comfortable in a dentist’s office. Finding Academy Dental was a blessing that I will not forget anytime soon.

I went here for an emergency visit on a weekend for a tooth abscess. I ended up needing a root canal and a crown. The staff was very friendly and they did a great job on my teeth. The office and waiting area were very clean. Wait times were a bit longer than I am used to at the dentist but they always had a full waiting room. The dentist who chose the color of my crown Didn’t listen to me and instead pushed the color he thought best matched my teeth…he pretty much refused to choose the one I picked….it doesn’t match at all and I’m not happy with the color. But the dentist’s who actually did the work were great. If it wasn’t for the long waits and the distance from my home I would probably switch to this practice.

I think Dr Navleen is an excellent Dentis, she is very professional and nice to treat. She is always in a good mood and do not hesitate to spend the necessary time to explain the procedures to her patients. Her dentist office is always clean and organized an the staff that support Dr Navleen are professional and keen on the matter.
