Meet Rehoboth Beach DE Dentist Dr. Edward Yalisove

Dr. Edward Yalisove grew up in Northern Delaware and spent many summer weekends racing sailboats in Rehoboth Bay. After watching his father practice dentistry and teach dental students for 37 years, Dr. Yalisove was inspired to pursue dentistry. He graduated from Gettysburg College in 1976 and then received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania Dental School in 1980. After graduating from Dental School, Dr. Yalisove returned to Wilmington to complete a General Practice Residency at Wilmington Medical Center, then completed a Fellowship at The Academy of General Dentistry in 1991. He has been in private practice in the Wilmington area since 1981 and has also provided care to seniors as part of the Nemours Senior Care program since 1982.

Dr. Yalisove says, “One aspect of dentistry that particularly resonates with me is to assist patients who are extremely fearful of dentistry. I listen to them and engage them in a relaxing manner. The majority of these reluctant patients become more comfortable with dentistry.”

In his spare time, he has run 60 half, full, and ultra marathons, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Rainer, and Mt. Cotopaxi (Ecuador), and backpacked 400 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail.
