Dr. Richard C. Staller

Board Certified by the American Board of Oral Implantology and Implant Dentistry

An alum of the Hun School, Dr. Staller’s roots are in Princeton, NJ. After graduating from Rutgers University – Cook College and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Dr Staller completed his post-graduate periodontology and dental implant training and residency at Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Graduate Dentistry.

He established his practice in Princeton in 1989. In 2001 he formed what is now known as Princeton Periodontics & Implants. Early on in dental school, Dr. Staller made an internal promise to commit himself, foremost, to his patients, regardless of what form or direction it took. It remains his guiding principle today. As technology advances and treatments evolve, he constantly evaluates every subtle shift by asking himself, “What’s best for my patients?” In turn, he’s proudest – even more than he is of the substantial cases to his credit – of his reputation among his patients and peers alike as one of the most compassionate, experienced periodontist in Princeton, NJ.

Dr. Staller is also proud of his achievements of becoming Board Certified by the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant dentistry and a Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He provides all implant services, including “Teeth in a Day”, jaw bone regeneration, laser therapy, and the state of the art periodontal treatment and aesthetic periodontics. “Being able to restore a patient’s confidence and self-esteem is why I practice,” he says.

Dr Staller and his wife, Helane, married for 34 years, make their home in Princeton, NJ, and raised their 2 children there. Away from his practice, Dr Staller golfs, plays tennis, and skis – his passion for which is rivaled only by his profession.
