Meet Dr. Agnihotri
Cosmetic Facial Surgeon Richmond & short Pump
Neil Agnihotri D.M.D., M.D., F.A.C.S., has two passions – a life long love of learning and his family.
Having completed 14 years of school / training as well as hundreds of hours of continuing medical education, it all started at the NJIT where he completed his B.Sc. in engineering.
Dr. Agnihotri first completed his bachelors in engineering then then attended New Jersey Dental School, where his interest in oral & maxillofacial surgery began. He matched into the UMDNJ 6-year integrated surgical residency, through which he obtained his doctorate of medicine and internship in general surgery.
During residency, he was given the unique opportunity of participating in medical missions including trips to Ghana and Bangladesh with SmileTrain. The trips involved treating both children and adults with cleft lips and palates. These trips gave him special appreciation for patients with aesthetic, functional and social issues. He has continued his dedication to medical care around the world with ongoing mission trips, most recently to Angouman, Haiti.
After completing his residency, he went on to complete a clinical fellowship in craniomaxillofacial surgery at the Posnick Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, Maryland with clinical privileges at Georgetown University Hospital. Dr. Agnihotri was able to treat many patients with congenital deformities resulting from syndromes or congenital malformations to restore facial balance and enhance aesthetics. He continues to have an academic presence, with an academic appointment at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Dr. Agnihotri is a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon, and is a fellow of two prestigious surgical societies, the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
Maxillofacial and aesthetic jaw reconstructive surgery as well as cosmetic facial surgery are particular passions of his. Dr. Agnihotri utilizes 21st century technology to plan your surgery to get the best possible outcome.

I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Agnihotri and his staff for my cosmetic surgery needs. I visited the West End office for my first appointment, and the staff exceeded my expectations from start to finish. The facility was very comfortable, private and relaxing. The staff was mindful of time and very efficient in their work- I was even seen 10 minutes earlier than my scheduled appointment time! Lauren assisted Dr. A. and was incredibly welcoming, patient and kind. Dr. Agnihotri was a great listener and spent significant time talking with me to determine what my goals were and how he could achieve them. He was thorough in his explanation of treatment options and professional and courtesy during our consult. It is obvious that he is passionate about patient care and the work that he provides. During the procedure, he and his staff incorporated multiple techniques to ensure comfort with the injections- which were practically painless- and Dr. Agnihotri was very gentle and careful during treatment. I very much appreciate the high quality of work, attention to detail, and personable chair side manner. Thank you, Dr. A and team for treating me like family! I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for safe, superior results.

I can not say enough great things about Dr. Sean Pack and his team! This doctor and his amazing staff are top notch and go above and beyond in every aspect. Having a dental emergency and needing a tooth extracted, Dr. Pack talked to me about what would be done to get me out of pain. He not only spoke to me about my concerns and minor setbacks I had but he listened... he cares about his patients. This kind of concern and caring demeanor cannot be faked. He genuinely cares and his very knowledgeable in all areas of his profession. Dr. Pack and his staff were prompt in returning calls and getting me an appointment in more than a timely manner. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pack to anyone that has oral surgery needs.
