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.

As a passionate and dedicated professional, Dr. Yelizar attends numerous continuing education courses each year to further his dental education and stay up-to-date on the latest technologies and techniques in the dental field. Dr. Yelizar is known for having excellent chair-side manners that make his patients feel comfortable and relaxed during appointments. His ultimate goal is to provide top-notch dental care that leaves you with a healthy, beautiful smile. 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.
