“Interacting with pediatric patients brings me the utmost joy. Children show incredible resilience when treated with care, comfort and reassurance. I take great pride in ensuring they have an awesome experience while keeping their smiles healthy."
DR. YASI YAZHARI DDS
Dr. Yasi Yazhari is a Texan through and through! Born in the suburbs of Fort Worth, she attended UT Arlington where she graduated Summa Cum Luade. There, Dr. Yazhari cultivated her passion for oral health and dentistry, deciding to pursue a career in making people smile. She graduated from dental school at UT San Antonio Health Science Center and then completed Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at the UT Houston School of dentistry. Her career began in private practice and for the next five years she also maintained an Associate Professor position at the Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry.
During her years in private practice, she realized that interacting with pediatric patients brought her joy. Impressed by their resilient nature, and with the depth and breadth of pathologies that involved this age group, she decided to further hone her skills as a dedicated pediatric dental resident at UT San Antonio Health Science Center. There she treated children in both clinical and hospital settings and served as the Chief Resident during her last year. She is a board certified pediatric dentist with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Following her pediatric residency, she began practicing as a pediatric dentist in the DFW area. As a trained pediatric dentist with an extensive background in general and specialty dentistry, she performs routine operative visits as well as complex cases under general anesthesia.
She is passionate about education and organized dentistry. Dr. Yazhari is currently an Associate Professor at Texas A&M college of Dentistry where she has the privilege to teach in the Department of Pediatrics. She is also an active member in the Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
We are excited to have her join Top Smile Orthodontics and Pediatrics! She looks forward to meeting y’all.
