Early on, Dr. Thakkar knew she wanted to work with her hands and make a difference in peoples lives. Her aunt was a dentist and, naturally, she gravitated toward the profession. When she was only 19 years old, the Chicago native entered dental school at the University of Illinois. At the time, she was the youngest to do so and graduated in 2004, at the age of 23. With a desire to continue learning and better serve her patients, Dr. Thakkar went on to study orthodontics and complete courses and surgeries in implant dentistry, sleep apnea, and periodontal disease prevention and treatment. She has been in private practice since 2007.

Dr Thakkar loves getting to know her patients and having a positive impact in their lives. Nothing compares to changing lives through smile transformation while helping patients achieve better health. Helping people who have sleep apnea has truly become a passion for her. Other focus areas include crown and bridge treatment, dentures, and dental implants. She is also passionate about 'green dentistry', an approach that reduces the environmentalimpact of dentistry right here in the Boone County area. Come visit us and discover how we can serve you.

When shes at home, Dr. Thakkar loves spending time with her husband and their three young children. She also enjoys working out, reading, volunteering at her church, and baking (and decorating) delicious cakes and cookies.
