Richard Friedman, DMD, MS
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.
