Meet Dr. Friedman

I love a good challenge – whether it’s improving my chess game, learning to make sushi, or finding the best solution for my patients. I strongly believe each orthodontic case requires individualized and abstract thinking – and a trusted relationship. Seeing a patient through the transformation from the beginning to end of treatment is the most rewarding part of my job. It never gets old to see a patient proud of their new smile.

Originally from West Orange, New Jersey, I earned my BS in Biological Anthropology and Anatomy with a Chemistry minor from Duke University and a Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 2011. Afterwards, I completed my orthodontic specialty training at the University of Detroit Mercy in 2013, earning a Certificate in Orthodontics and a Masters in Oral Sciences.

In addition to being a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association and American Association of Orthodontists, I am also a diplomate and board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. Only one in three orthodontists share this achievement, and I am very proud of this honor to be a member of the ABO.

In my free time, I enjoy being active at the local gym and working on projects in my home in Royal Oak. I also love traveling the globe and am in competition with my younger brother to see who can reach all seven continents first. He’s currently winning. You may see the Motor City staff and me around town at the supermarket, local school events or at a restaurant in downtown Royal Oak! If you see us, please say hi!
