Simpli the best! Feeling blessed to have met Dr Yelizar. I got braces 3 times (span of 25 years), Dr Yelizar is my 4th ortho and he finally fixed my issue. He is a problem solver, perfectionist, and extremely passionate about his work. Followed Dr Yelizar on Instagram for 2 years and thought he was in Connecticut. After 2 years, I checked again hoping he relocated to New York City. To my surprise, he was always in Forest Hills. So I am very glad he is now my orthodontist. I highly recommend Dr Yelizar !

Are you looking for a new orthodontist near Forest Hills? We understand you may have a few questions and concerns about our services before coming to see us.

How Do I Get Emergency Orthodontic Care?

If you ever find yourself experiencing an orthodontic emergency, you should contact us right away. Whether you have a broken wire or a loose bracket, we’ll do everything we can to address the issue and get your treatment back on the right track. Over the phone, an experienced team member will provide tips to manage the situation at home.

It’s worth noting that most emergency rooms are not well-equipped to handle dental emergencies, which is why you should only head to the hospital when you’re experiencing a life-threatening situation. The best way to avoid further complications is by practicing good oral hygiene and staying on top of your preventive dental care.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Orthodontic Work Done?

First things first, you need to identify what’s most important to you when it comes to orthodontic care near Forest Hills. It may help to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I want a provider that’s in-network with my insurance?
  • Do I want to visit a location that’s closer to my home or work office?
  • Do I want to see an orthodontist that offers comprehensive services?

Once you have that figured out, you can use Google to narrow down a practice that meets your criteria. If you want to better determine if our practice is right for you, feel free to check out our team bios and patient reviews!

What to Do If You Can’t Afford an Orthodontist?

Most dental insurance plans offer some level of coverage for orthodontic treatments. After we create a specific plan that meets your needs, we’ll discuss your payment options. Rest assured – you’ll always know exactly what to expect before starting any treatment! To help you out, we’re happy to offer an “interest-free in-house” financing option. If needed, we’ll gladly work out a payment plan that fits within your budget.

For the biggest bang for your buck, we provide “Pay in Full” discounts. Additionally, we provide the “Sibling Discount”, which offers discounted rates for siblings or any other family member wanting to start treatment with us.

What Level of Education Is Required to Be an Orthodontist?

Every dentist in the United States must have received either a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) from one of the 67 accredited dental schools in the country. If they decide to continue their education by earning 1 of 12 specializations recognized by the American Dental Association, these require three or more years of dental school training. Orthodontists are required to complete a certain number of continuing education hours to maintain licensure.
