About Elisa J. Velazquez

Knowing that young patients require special attention, Drs. Linda Insano, Matthew Sones and Elisa Velazquez create an enjoyable dental experience focused on prevention. “Dr. Linda,” “Dr. Matt” and “Dr. Lisa” provide custom treatment based on what’s best for each child. The kid-friendly team offers comprehensive check-ups, treatment and orthodontics, with in–office sedation or hospital dentistry when necessary.

This year, their growing practice opened a third location in Cream Ridge. “Our goal is to provide the highest quality care for pediatric patients throughout Ocean County,” says Dr. Velazquez. The busy practice includes pediatric dentists Drs. Akriti Gupta, Raha Ghufarian and Victoria Roeder, along with orthodontists Drs. Suzanne Quigley and Miriam Furlong.

This group is especially welcoming to special needs kids. They invite patients to their free monthly Dental Orientation Program, when they can meet the team, sit in a dental chair and learn to brush like an expert. This helps children become great dental patients.

Dr. Insano, the practice founder, graduated from UMDNJ and completed specialty training at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. A board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Sones graduated from University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, then completed specialty training at Maimonides Medical Center. Dr. Velazquez earned her dental degree, specialty certificate and master’s degree in oral biology from UMDNJ. This board-certified pediatric dentist currently serves as president of the NJ Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
