WHY HE WAS NOMINATED:

In 2015, Dr. Saggar and colleague Dr. Sarika Banker, a board-certified dermatologist, opened a unique private practice offering a broad range of dental and dermatological services. The meticulous Dr. Saggar focuses on implantology, periodontal maintenance and treatment of oral-health sleep disorders. The duo’s second facility opens in 2018.

“It allows me to combine a passion for science and health with my proclivity for detail-oriented work.”

SOMETHING PEOPLE DON’T KNOW:

Dr. Saggar has practiced yoga since 2003. “When I started, I was just interested in doing things that looked cool, like headstands, but as I progressed, I gained a greater appreciation for the effect yoga has on the mind and body.”
