Throughout his childhood, Dr. Sal visited the dentist frequently for orthodontics and oral surgery, as well as routine appointments. His experiences were always exceptional, and he’s wanted to make a positive impact on people’s lives and overall health ever since. Dr. Colombo earned his DMD from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine. He went on to complete his training in pediatric dentistry at the University of Rochester NY.
Dr. Sal has always had a knack for working with children, and he never lost touch with his inner-child. One of the reasons that children love their visits at The Little Royals is Dr. Sal’s fun-loving, silly attitude and his ability to make every kid feel like they are a friend.
Even though her mother was a healthcare provider and she never had a negative experience at a dental office, Dr. Yasi was incredibly fearful of the dentist growing up. She learned at an early age how important it is to feel comfortable in the care of a doctor. After earning her DMD from the University of Florida College of Dentistry, she went on to complete her training in pediatric dentistry at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health at the University of Rochester NY, where she met Dr. Sal.
Now that she and Dr. Sal have a dental office of their own, Dr. Yasi is excited to create a space where kids feel at ease and respected. Dr. Yasi remembers what it was like to be a kid in a new dental office, so she takes the time to address your child’s needs with empathetic care before beginning treatment. You and your little one will come in to visit a dentist, and leave with a friend!

Dr. Sal and Dr. Yasi's first four-legged child, Bear, was loyal and wise beyond his years. He is an inspiration for both the doctors and the true heart of everything they stand for. Bear was kind to every child, adult, or animal he had ever met. He loved taking adventures in water, rain, snow, mountains, or swamps, and he lived his life with a fullness and passion that we can all aspire to. For the team at The Little Royals Dentistry for Kids, Bear will always be their Little Prince.
Board-certified pediatric dentists take additional voluntary examinations following the completion of their graduate degree. It is required that board-certified dentists renew their certification annually. Going through this process demonstrates that they are staying up to date and continuing to pursue excellence and mastery in the field.
“What matters most are the simple pleasures so abundant that we can all enjoy them… Happiness doesn't lie in the objects we gather around us. To find it, all we need to do is open our eyes.”
