Dr. Peter Yelizar is our newest doctor. He joined DeJesus Dental Group in 2013. 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 loves of science, art, and altruism in order to create gorgeous smiles like those he captured on film during his travels.
Dr. Yelizar is a member of several learning organizations including the American Dental Association, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the Academy of General Dentistry. He views continuing education courses as a way to improve his skills as a health care provider. Dr. Yelizar is known for having an excellent chairside manner that makes 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 patients have healthier smiles, Dr. Yelizar enjoys spending time with his family and friends, including his puppy, Zane. He also loves to read, play sports, and travel.
