Dr. Friedman

A leading expert in Invisalign



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!


Detroit Orthodontic Specialists

The Detroit Orthodontic Specialists are here to give you the amazing smile you’ve always wanted! Every aspect of our practice was designed to make it as easy as possible to get straight teeth, from our location right next to Campus Martius, to the high tech methods that allow for fast and easy appointments, to our super flexible financing, and to our absolute love and commitment of Detroit.


Office Highlights

Our home is the beautiful Globe Tobacco Building on the corner of Brush and Fort (next to the old County Building). Built in 1888 and made of the original brick and beam construction, it is an easy walk from anywhere Downtown, with ample parking on the street or the adjacent lot.



DOS provides Downtown Detroit orthodontic treatment exclusively with Invisalign. Invisalign is the high tech, state of the art industry leader in clear plastic aligners.

The first name in clear aligner orthodontic treatment, Invisalign

Invisalign has set the standard for clear aligner treatment. The first, and most technologically advanced system, DOS has chosen Invisalign as their platform. Since its inception in 2000, they have led the way in innovation and R&D. Invisalign has pioneered the most advanced software, polymers, and adjuncts to allow for the most efficient and predictable results.

Actual DOS Invisalign Patient

Dr. Friedman is an Diamond Plus Invisalign provider, having completed the most advanced continuing education courses in Invisalign including a year-long Invisalign Orthodontic Master Program Course taught by leading providers across the country. He will also be educating other doctors in the metro-Detroit area through an Invisalign curriculum at his alma mater, teaching this advanced technique to residents at the University of Detroit Mercy.

As an Diamond Plus Invisalign Provider, Dr. Friedman is trained in providing this clean and simplified technology to children, not just adults, to promote a gentler and more hygienic orthodontic process. Invisalign is the future of orthodontics, erasing painful memories of mouth soreness or white stains often associated with braces and offering a more efficient treatment plan with a reduced number of office visits.

A series of trays will be custom made to be changed weekly with office visits to monitor you or your child’s progress every 8-10 weeks. Please call to schedule a consultation to learn how our team can change you or your child’s smile with the newest generation of orthodontics.

The iTero Element

DOS is the first office in the state to use the just released scanner, the Element. This state of the art scanner is faster, smaller, and more powerful than ever. A faster scan with a smaller wand means an easier scan for you, and a more precise file for the DOS doctors. Improved aligner fit ensures compete tooth control. The Element also features an Outcome Simulator. We will be able to show you what your smile might look like by using the built in simulator.


New Patients

The Detroit Orthodontic Specialists are happy to offer you an initial orthodontic exam free of charge.


Your First Visit

At this appointment, we will take a free scan, photos and X-ray. We will show you a computer simulation of your teeth after Invisalign. We’ll next discuss treatment options and goal, treatment timing, and other concerns.

We don’t want financing to get in your way of a beautiful smile. We offer a unique software based system that allows you to completely customize your own payment plan. We process any insurance benefits you might have. For your convenience, early morning and lunch hour appointments are available.
