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 almost twenty 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. He is, therefore, unconditionally committed to overcoming his patients' anxieties and fears. Dr. Aziz 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. Patients will be pleased to know that he has completed the Nobel Biocare Implant Mini Residency. He is also certified in Lumineers (minimal or no preparation veneers) and Invisalign (invisible, clear braces).
Community involvement is also very important to Dr. Aziz. He has lived in North Aurora since 2005 and is proud to live in the community where he practices. For the past several years, his office has served as a corporate sponsor of Operation Christmas, 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). His office is also a proud supporter of the North Aurora Baseball Association and has enjoyed sponsoring several teams over the past few years. In addition, Dr. Aziz has previously provided volunteer dental services for at-risk youth and under-served communities. He understands the importance of participating 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 their community.
In his time away from the practice of dentistry, Dr. Aziz enjoys skiing, traveling, playing basketball, 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: an energetic sixteen-year-old son who aspires to be a storm chaser; an inquisitive twelve-year-old son who loves the word, "Why," and looks forward to playing travel baseball (and maybe soccer too, if his schedule permits); a bright-eyed ten-year-old daughter who loves all things in pink, writes wonderful notes to her parents, and loves to express her thoughts on the issues of the day as discussed in her class; and a loving two-year-old son who loves exploring all new things.
Dr. Aziz looks forward to making your acquaintance and helping you achieve your very best smile.
