Sapna Thakkar, DDS
Dr. Sapna Thakkar was born in India and grew up on Long Island, NY. She attended State University of New York at Farmingdale for her undergrad where she earned her dental hygiene degree and Bachelor’s Degree in bioscience almost simultaneously. She then went on to pursue her Doctorate Degree in Dentistry at State University of New York at Buffalo where she graduated magna cum laude with thesis honors.
Dr. Thakkar completed her residency at Kings County Hospital Center located in the heart of Brooklyn, NY for one year. This is where she discovered her love for pediatric dentistry.
Her goal as a dentist is to educate parents and children, provide excellent dental care, and to be a positive influence in the children’s lives and empower them to take pride in their smiles. “I believe that every child should have access to quality dental care and establish a dental home that allows the provider to build a relationship with the parents and patient. The most important thing to me is to create a positive, comfortable and friendly environment for the patient at all times. It is also important that the patient is listened to, supported and motivated at every visit so that we can provide a lasting dental home for families,” said Thakkar.
Outside of dentistry she loves being a wife and mother to her daughter. She also enjoys reading, art, cooking, yoga, hiking and other outdoor activities.
Dr. Thakkar is a member of the American Dental Association.
