RUBEN YELIZAR | DDS
Meet the Dentist
Whether you’re new in town or looking for a new dentist, Dr. Yelizar welcomes you to our office to meet with him outside of the dental chair.
Dr. Ruben Yelizar realized he had a passion for dentistry during his undergraduate years in Queens College. After acquiring a Bachelor’s degree, he wasted no time and jumped straight into dental school at the prestigious New York University. There, he graduated with an Honors in Aesthetic Dentistry, under the direct tutelage of Dr. John Calamia who is a pioneer in the field of Aesthetic Dentistry.
Hungry for more, Dr. Yelizar decided to progress his clinical training by completing a year of general practice residency at King’s County Hospital. There he was given the opportunity to connect with a multitude of patients and take what he learned at NYU as well as multiple continuing education courses to provide the most up to date, advanced treatment options. Such care ranged from full mouth rehabilitative care involving digital dentistry, implant surgery, emergency pain management and more. He’s very excited to join the wonderful team at DeJesus Dental Group to provide supreme care to all their great patients.
On a more personal note, Dr. Yelizar has a passion for all things art – from drawing, to photography, music, movies and more. He worked for over a decade as an event cinematographer & editor before realizing he wanted a more personal connection in his day-to- day interactions, leading to his current line of work, combining his love of art with his desire to learn and help others.
