Meet the Doc

Dr. Sunny Thakkar

As strange as it sounds, I decided I wanted to be a dentist at a fairly young age. In my freshman year of high school, I decided that whatever I ended up doing in the future, it had to include changing the lives of other people for the better and working with my hands. After shadowing different medical professionals, I was so drawn to the fusion of medicine, art, and engineering that dentistry could provide. But let’s be honest, I had no idea at that young age that dentistry would not just be my profession, but also my obsession. Yes, you heard that right, I am obsessed with teeth. It sometimes feels like a problem, mostly to my wife and my friends, but it truly allows me to give my patients the best possible care that they deserve. 

After growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, IL, I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois – Urbana Champaign. Go Illini! After graduation, I moved to the east coast to attend the prestigious University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine. After working as an associate for close to 7 years, I decided that I wanted to build something bigger. A dental office that didn’t feel like the dreadful dental office that everyone fears. A safe place, with no judgement, where I could show patients that dentistry doesn’t need to be scary. With the latest technologies and techniques, I want to create the ultimate patient experience. That is the vision behind Smile Flossophy. 
I’m not only married to dentistry, I’m actually also married to my beautiful wife ,Brinda, and we have the most spunky, cute, energetic daughter named Naya. We are residents of Robbinsville Township and giving back to our community of Mercer County has always been important to us. In our free time, we love to travel the world, volunteer at our temple, and be silly with Naya. Even though I’ve been on the east coast for over 10 years now, my loyalty still lies with all my Chicago sports teams (don’t judge me for it!) 
Anyway, that’s enough about me! I can’t wait to meet you and your family at our state-of-the-art practice. I promise you won’t regret becoming a patient with us.
