Mehmet Uzel, DMD

About Mehmet Uzel

Adhering to a philosophy of providing comprehensive treatment to patients that will make them comfortable and serve them as long as possible, Dr. Uzel combines a scientific background with almost three decades of experience in periodontics and teaching at Boston University and University of Pennsylvania. “What I do with dentistry is going to increase my patient’s health, and also their quality of life, significantly,” he says.
Dr. Uzel, the only board-certified periodontist practicing in Princeton, offers all types of treatment for gum disease, including gum and bone grafts, implants, tooth extractions, and related procedures. He uses the newest technology, including a 3-D cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging machine and an intraoral scanner, and coordinates treatments with referring dentists throughout Central New Jersey. “Because periodontics is more of a surgically driven specialty, I am there for my patients 24 hours a day, remaining on call until they heal entirely,” he says. “I’m also surrounded by a caring team that works with patients efficiently and respectfully.”
Based in New Jersey since 2006, Dr. Uzel graduated from Boston University School of Dental Medicine, where he earned both his dental degree and a doctoral degree in oral/bone biology. “The latter enables me to understand complex dental issues in a more comprehensive and biological manner,” he says. “I’m capable of foreseeing the limitations of our technical abilities in regard to the materials we used to grow bone. My background and experience also help me give patients a realistic view of what needs to be done for long-term success.”
