Meet Dr. Catherine Yazar

It is extremely gratifying to know that in some way I have helped my patients, as a dentist or just as a friend there to listen. Building relationships with my patients and their families brings joy to my life and a deeper meaning to my career. I truly enjoy making a difference in people’s lives, but mostly, they make a difference in mine.

Education and Continuing Education

On the road to becoming a dentist, I received my Bachelor of Science degree at the Ohio State University and earned distinction in microbiology. I then continued my education at the Ohio State University, earning my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2005.

I enjoy being on the cutting-edge of the newest procedures and materials. I do a lot of continuing education in endodontics, oral pathology, and advanced restorative procedures. My research enables me to use the most current information to create a customized treatment plan and diagnosis for each patient. I feel that I owe it to my patients to research and stay current with all of the new dental innovations in order to treat my patients to the best of my ability.
