Jennifer A. Friedman, DMD, MS  Orthodontist

Dr. Jennifer Friedman is an artist of life, her inspiration is nature, her creations are aesthetics, facial balance and optimal functionality.
Dr. Friedman was born in Louisville, Kentucky where she developed an exceptional combination of artistry and academics.  Dr. Friedman completed her Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.  She continued her studies at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry completing her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in May 2008 and her Masters of Science in Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology in August of 2008.  Dr. Friedman completed her Orthodontics certification in June of 2010 at the University of Rochester Eastman Institute of Oral Health in Rochester, NY.

 A word from Dr. Friedman:   “I am dedicated to the highest quality of orthodontic treatment to achieve excellent results, including not only a perfect bite, but also facial aesthetic harmony.  I do this by using functional appliances to modify jaw growth and musculature development in growing children, and using sophisticated biomechanics to ensure proper and efficient tooth movement in patients of all ages.  It is my goal to create a beautiful smile, while remaining conservative in my treatment approach, and avoid overextending the envelope of biological limitations to ensure a stable result.  I love working with patients of all ages, as I find it incredibly rewarding when my patients see their new smile, and then feel immediately more confident.”
