Meet The Team

Dr. Ritu Bansal


Dr. Bansal has loved dentistry from the beginning. She needed a lot of work as a child who was fearful of going to the dentist and saw the value in having a gentle touch when serving her patients. She enjoys providing conservative, necessary, and esthetic general dentistry to patients of all ages. She values discussing treatment options with her patients and engaging them in their health care.

Everyone has different talents- some can do sports, some can sing, some can even dance. Dr Bansal can’t do any of those things, but she can give a painless injection.

She was the Director of St. Luke’s Dental Health Center in Cedar Rapids , Iowa for 11 years where she provided comprehensive care to children through age of 18 and disabled people of any age
