Dr. Himanshi Thakkar

General Dentist

Dr. Himanshi Thakkar, formerly of Belvidere Dental Designs, has recently joined the Generations Dental Team. Dr. Thakkar looks forward to working with you to help you attain the smile of your dreams!


Early on, Dr. Thakkar knew she wanted to work with her hands and make a difference in people’s 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.

Treatment Philosophy

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 environmental impact of dentistry right here in the Boone County area.  Come visit us and discover how we can serve you.

Rest & Relaxation

When she’s 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. Her claim to fame was being featured in an article as the youngest graduating female dentist in the state of Illinois!
