Creating Beautiful Smiles for over 30 Years

Welcome to the dental office of Dr. Richard Meleo and Dr. Jane Ligums, a comprehensive dental practice that treats the entire family.

Our North Plainfield dentists have a wealth of experience, and they pursue continuing education opportunities to stay abreast of the latest technologies and treatments designed to effectively preserve and repair smiles. Dr. Meleo and Dr. Ligums are Fellows of the Academy of General Dentistry, a designation awarded to dentists who challenge themselves to learn more so they can provide their patients with the best quality care. Dentists who achieve the Fellowship award have completed a minimum of 500 continuing dental education hours and passed a comprehensive exam.

Now Dr. Meleo and Dr. Ligums are close to earning their Mastership awards. To do so, they must complete an additional 600 approved continuing education hours within specific dental disciplines.


Our dentists and staff offer a complex range of services and treatments, including:


From Our Family to Yours

We also are proud of the longevity among our staff, which shows patients that our team believes in the care we provide our patients each and every day. We treat you and your family as though you are a member of our family. This approach has helped us earn our patients’ trust and as a result, we have the honor of treating multiple generations of families.


Our office has followed these four guiding principles since we opened in 1984:

  • We are impeccable with our word
  • We take the time to listen to our patients and form relationships
  • We appreciate our patients’ loyalty and strive to earn it at every appointment
  • We always do what’s best for our patients, with their input

We accept a variety of PPO insurance plans, and will work with you to help you get the most out of your benefits. We also offer our own dental savings plan designed for patients who don’t have insurance and would like a discounted option.


We Love When Our Patients Love Us!
