Board Certified Orthodontist Near Elmhurst, NY
Dr. Isaak Yelizar, an orthodontist near Elmhurst, NY, graduated from the New York University College of Dentistry with the highest honors. He was a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society and earned several scholastic awards. He then moved on to a general practice residency at New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, where he fell in love with orthodontics. His hard work led to an orthodontic residency program at St. Barnabas Hospital.
Dr. Yelizar is very proud to be a board-certified orthodontist, an honor bestowed by the American Board of Orthodontics. It requires the epitome of professional achievement. Dr. Yelizar completed several advanced written and oral examinations and presented his cases to a panel of experts from the Board. This accomplishment is rare, as only about 20 percent of orthodontists are board-certified.
In addition to his advanced certification, Dr. Yelizar, owner and orthodontist at SimpliBraces, is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Association of Orthodontists, and the Northeastern Society of Orthodontists. He is active in meetings with these organizations, continuing education courses, and learning all that he can about the future of orthodontics.
You have heard the phrase, “Less is more.” This is Dr. Yelizar’s approach to orthodontics. He prefers to use preventive and guiding orthodontics, which are the least invasive techniques for accomplishing a beautiful smile. He doesn’t turn to extractions or surgery unless it is necessary. His end goal is to give each patient a beautiful, healthy, and functional smile with the least amount of intervention.
When he is away from the world of orthodontics, Dr. Yelizar enjoys traveling and photographing the cultures of the world. He enjoys calisthenics and spending time with his family.
