Springhetti Dentistry

Since 2020, Dr. Aaron Springhetti has been offering a specialized, full-service dental practice for patients looking for something unique.

It’s not every day you hear a dentist refer to his craft as “art,” but for Springhetti, his artistic side led to his passion for cosmetic dentistry.

“I’ve always wanted to take care of people and was interested in the health care field,” he said. “When I was young, I found I had a knack for art. I was always working on projects, always working with my hands, and in college I minored in art. I was introduced to dentistry as something that was both health care related, and getting to create things with your hands, and I knew it was the right path for me.”

He’s in the process of earning accreditation through the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Since the 1990s only 500 dentists in the world have received accreditation and only one other in Indianapolis – a mentor of Springhetti.

“Cosmetic dentistry isn’t considered a specialty right now,” Springhetti said. “I think it will be in the future, but it’s important that those of us who specialize in cosmetic dentistry have received the necessary training and experience. It’s something I believe in, love and truly enjoy. Whether working on a single tooth or a full smile rehabilitation, there are a lot of details that go into it.”

Over the past few years, advances in technology allow patients to see 3D renderings of what their finished smile will look like, but Springhetti said it’s the skill and experience that deliver those results.

Springhetti Dentistry is located at10485 N. Michigan Rd., Suite 150, Carmel, IN, 317-875-7645.

“I love that we can offer a digital version for patients to see,” he said. “It makes treatment easier and results more predictable, but really, the patient always looks better than the digital version. It’s important to have someone dedicated to their craft, devoted to always learning more and really fine-tuning their skills.”

Springhetti Dentistry offers everything from routine cleanings to orthodontics to advanced cosmetic dentistry and full-mouth rehabilitation. The goal behind all of their work is to create healthy teeth and smiles for each patient.

Some patients come to Springhetti with years of negative experiences and feelings of self-consciousness about their smile.

“You sometimes see someone cover their mouth when they smile, or you can tell when someone hesitates before smiling,” Springhetti said. “We’ve had countless patients who have done smile rehabilitation and said, ‘I’ve never felt so good about myself.’ It’s life-changing for many.”

Knowing the joy he’s seen on patients’ faces, Springhetti volunteers once per month at the Heart & Soul free dental clinic in Westfield. He’s been on numerous dental mission trips, and once per year the office puts on Smiles for the Community Day, providing free dental services to underserved individuals at the office.

Ultimately, it’s the relationships he’s forming that matter most.

“You get to know your patient, hear their stories, and learn about their life and their family,” Springhetti said. “We’re spending a lot of time with them, so it’s much more than just a patient-provider relationship; our patients are part of our dental family. You look forward to seeing those patients just for who they are, rather than focusing on clinical or procedural aspects of the relationship.”
