Meet Dr. Hammad Aziz
It is often said that you can see the soul of a person in their eyes and the spirit in their smile. It is Dr. Aziz’s goal is to help all his patients renew and rejuvenate that spirit by giving them the smile they have always wanted.
Dr. Aziz has been practicing a broad spectrum of general and cosmetic dentistry for about twenty-five years. He is pleased and proud to have earned a reputation based on honesty, quality, and care with a gentle touch.
Patients come to the dentist with many fears. Dr. Aziz is unconditionally committed to overcoming his patients’ anxieties and fears. He consistently completes all procedures with a uniquely special gentle touch, and believes in treating each patient with the utmost compassion. To state it simply, he loves to wow his patients by performing totally painless procedures from start to finish!
Staying abreast of the latest technology and patient care practices is very important to Dr. Aziz. He regularly sets aside time to attend continuing education courses on the various aspects of dentistry. This can be evidenced by the cutting-edge technology and advanced patient procedures he employs in his practice. Dr. Aziz has completed numerous continuing education courses on Dental Implants. He is also certified in Invisalign and Six Month Smiles (invisible, clear braces), the dental treatment of Sleep Apnea/Snoring, and Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Therapy.
It is also important to Dr. Aziz to be minimally invasive in all procedures he performs. When tooth structure is drilled away, it will never come back. Therefore, preserving tooth structure is of utmost importance to Dr. Aziz. This is why he has invested in advanced training on inlays and onlays (to prevent the need for crowns), technologies such as air abrasion, and is an active member of the Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry.
Community involvement is also very important to Dr. Aziz. North Aurora Smiles has served as a corporate sponsor of Operation Christmas for many years, an annual program of the North Aurora Mothers Club to help local families in need. North Aurora Smiles also enjoys sponsoring the Village of North Aurora’s annual North Aurora Days Festival, as well as events organized by the North Aurora River District Alliance (NOARDA). For almost a decade, North Aurora Smiles has also been a proud supporter and team sponsor of the North Aurora Baseball Association and Fox Valley Freedom Baseball. In addition, Dr. Aziz has provided many hours of volunteer dental services for at-risk youth and under-served communities. He understands the importance of volunteering in the Fox Valley area to make it a better place to work and live. He and his wife are dedicated to making a positive impact in our community.
In his time away from the practice of dentistry, Dr. Aziz enjoys skiing, traveling, and hiking, but most of all he enjoys spending quality time with his family. He and his wife strive to be excellent parents to their four children. As a family, their goal is to visit all 62 national parks.
Dr. Aziz looks forward to making your acquaintance and helping you achieve your very best smile.
