While attending Lyman Briggs Residential College at Michigan State University, he earned his Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Biology. Dr. Yared received his doctorate from the University of Michigan Dental School in 2003, all the while maintaining his Spartan allegiance.
We asked Dr. Yared a few questions so you can get to know him a little better!
“It really comes down to my passion for helping others and building relationships with the community, which dentistry allows me to do! I just really love the personal interaction, the individuality of each patient, and the progressive science of my chosen profession.”
“For me it’s definitely making my patients feel comfortable with the power of laughter! I find humor is a great way to break the ice, get to know my patients, and help change their view of dentistry.”
“I absolutely love providing my patients with Invisalign treatment, it is truly life changing and I am just lucky to have a front row seat. There is nothing better than seeing the smiles of joy and confidence after treatment!”

“I had the opportunity to go on a mission trip and was quite surprised to see how far people would travel just to see a dentist. Seeing the bright smiles on their faces after just receiving a toothbrush was really a turning point for me. Those big smiles brought with them a realization, oral health is so important to our well-being and overall health. From that day on, I wanted to be a part of a team that helps patients improve their oral health so they can live happier and healthier lives!”
