Orthodontist Yaroslav Yarmolyuk, DDS, MS

   “For me orthodontics is much more than straightening teeth.  Orthodontics is helping my patients improve their lives by giving them a beautiful, healthy, and a confident smile for life. Every day in my orthodontic practice, I meet people who are embarrassed to smile or even open their mouth because they don’t like the look of their teeth. Orthodontic treatment changes their lives by making their smile more attractive and raising their confidence and self-esteem. For me orthodontics is the best profession in the world because it gives me the ability to change my patients’ lives.”

After completing his undergraduate studies in Biology, Dr. Yaroslav Yarmolyuk attended the College of Dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he received extensive theoretical and clinical training in dentistry. During his studies at the University of Illinois, Dr. Yarmolyuk obtained Bachelor of Science in Dentistry and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees.  He also received multiple awards and was involved in a variety of research and leadership activities.

Dr. Yarmolyuk continued his training at Marquette University post-graduate orthodontic residency.  This intense full-time, two-year training in orthodontics and craniofacial orthopedics prepared him to treat even the most challenging orthodontic cases.
