Harshit Aggarwal, DDS, MSD
Center For Dentofacial Aesthetics

What made you decide to become a dentist? I always had a passion for visualizing an objective and then reverse-engineering the steps needed to get there. This, coupled with my dexterity and love for exacting positive change in people’s lives, helping them in their journey toward healthier living, made dentistry the right fit. Oral health is vital to overall systemic health; every day, I get to help my patients make positive changes that will last a lifetime.
What makes you different from other dentists? My vision. I strive to build back trust in healthcare. When insurance companies, patients, and doctors fight with one another, the disease wins. In my ideal world, we all work together to fight the disease, and patients can trust their doctors 100 percent. Every day, every procedure and every person I meet helps me fulfill this vision. We never recommend unnecessary treatments and care for all patients as though they are extensions of our families.
How do you employ new technology to help your patients? Our state-of-the-art facility features the most sophisticated dental technologies, and our team stays at the forefront of the latest techniques and industry advancements. However, the technology in my office does not dictate treatment plans. We always use the best technology available to fit each patient’s individual needs. We have a full-service, in-house lab where we make all our prosthetics. Our digital 3D scanners, cameras, sensors and CBCT ensure the most accurate diagnoses, efficient treatment plans and longest-lasting results.
