Dr. Himanshi Thakkar has been in private practice since 2007. She earned her dental degree from University of Illinois in 2004. She was the youngest (19 yr. old) to enter dental school and to graduate dental school at the mere age of 23. Dr. Thakkar keeps her skills current with continuing education and new green technology. She went on to persue orthodontics in 2007. Recently she has continued her education to better serve her patients with courses and live surgeries in Implant Dentistry, Sleep Apnea, and Periodontal disease prevention and treatment. Treating sleep apnea with Dental Devices has truly become a passion for her as prevention and treatment is life changing. The thing that she loves about dentistry is getting to know the person and really being able to help her patients. Recently, Dr. Thakkar went on a humanitarian mission to DR to give back and utilize her skills where she placed free implants.
Dr. Thakkar is a native of Chicago and has lived in Boone County with her husband and two kids since 2006. She appreciates serving the Belvidere area, as well as Boone and Winnebago county patients and those that also come from far away to still see her. When she is not doing dentistry that she loves, she enjoys spending time at home with her family, working out, cooking/baking and reading. One of her favorite passtime is game nights with the kids.
