As a dental professional, Dr. Yelizar stays up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options for his patients.

That is just one of many reasons why he values each and every patient relationship. After earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree in only three years from Queens College, Dr. Yelizar took a break from the books so that he could travel and explore his passion for photography. He soon returned and earned his Doctoral Degree from New York University College of Dentistry. During his residency at St. Barnabas Hospital, Dr. Yelizar learned to merge his love of science, art, and altruism in order to create gorgeous smiles like those he captured on film during his travels.

When he is not helping his patients have healthier smiles, Dr. Yelizar enjoys spending time with his wife, newborn daughter, along with his doberman, Zane. Dr. Yelizar has been playing tennis since he could hold up a racket and continues to enjoy this sport in his leisure time. He also loves animals, reading, scuba diving, and traveling.

He was wonderful, I have a massive fear of the dentist and he was very gentle and fast. I couldn't believe it went as fast as it did. He was very informative and helpful. I will 100 percent be going back.

I didn’t have a dentist in Long Island because I recently moved. I made an emergency appointment because of a broken tooth and I received the best care, they even followed up with me and I went back for a teethcleaning and regular check up and I took my husband along as well. Everyone made us feel at home and very comfortable and that was super important being that my last dental experience was pretty bad. Definitely will be going back every six months, love this office and I recommend it to others.

I went to another dentist earlier today and I was STUNNED at how different Dr Yelizar was, he was very clear, willing to help me as much as physically possible, and actually paid attention to me as an individual. Not onlyis the office new, sterilized, and clean, but the service by both doctors here was friendly and helpful. Thank you so much!
