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 firstname.lastname@example.org
DOS provides Downtown Detroit orthodontic treatment exclusively with Invisalign. Invisalign is the high tech, state of the art industry leader in clear plastic aligners. Your teeth are straightened with clear, comfortable aligners with Invisalign. DOS is one of the only adult centered practices in Detroit and Michigan. Located on East Fort Street in Downtown Detroit, Detroit Orthodontic Specialists (DOS), proudly serves the greater Detroit area. We have over 20 years of combined Invisalign experience.
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 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.
You will be emailed a medical history form to complete prior to your visit. Thank you, and we look forward to creating an amazing smile!
