Meet the Orthodontist:
Dr. Andrea Nakisher
I love my job and am honored to be part of such a wonderful profession! Orthodontics brings together so many things that I love and allows me to form connections with my patients and their families. It is always amazing to see my young patients grow as they start and finish their orthodontic treatment. Each patient is unique and I love being able to create a beautiful, healthy smile for each individual patient.
I have been practicing in Farmington Hills/West Bloomfield and the surrounding communities since 1997. After studying music at the University of Iowa, I received my dental degree in 1994 from the University Of Illinois College Of Dentistry. I completed the Orthodontic Specialty Program at the University of Illinois in 1997, receiving a master’s degree in Orthodontics and Oral Sciences.
I feel that it is important to keep up with new techniques and I have always embraced the newest technologies in order to provide my patients with the best possible care. I complete many additional hours of continuing education courses each year to keep up to date. I am also a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, Michigan Association of Orthodontists, Great Lakes Orthodontic Study Club, and the Michigan Damon Digital Study Club.
I grew up in the Chicago area and am proud to be a third generation dentist. My father, Dan, still practices in the Chicago suburbs. I have lived in West Bloomfield since 1997 and love spending time both at work and at home with my family. My husband, Dr. Brian Gendelman, and I have 5 children; Isabel, Emily, David, Jack and Stephen. I love the outdoors, traveling to new places and spending quiet time at home on the weekends with family and friends.
