About Elisa J. Velazquez

Knowing that young patients require unique attention, Dr. Linda Insano and Dr. Elisa Velazquez create an enjoyable dental experience with an emphasis on prevention. They pride themselves on providing exceptional treatment for infants, children and those with special needs.

A graduate of UMDNJ, Dr. Insano completed her pediatric specialty training at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. She is the group’s founding partner.
