Who We Are

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.

Dr. Nakisher - Education & Credentials

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 a Spear Study Group, where I meet with my local general dentists and periodontists to discuss multi-disciplinary cases.

Dr. Nakisher - Outside of Work

I grew up in the Chicago area and am proud to be a third generation dentist. West Bloomfield has been my home since 1997 and I love that my job allows me to be an integral part of the community where I live. When I’m not in my office, you can find me walking and biking on a local trail. I love the outdoors, traveling to new places and spending quiet time at home on the weekends with my family and friends.

Dr. Susan Rizk

Dr. Rizk believes in treating patients like family. One of the things she loves most about being an orthodontist is getting to know her patients while working with them to achieve the smile of their dreams. Each year she completes many hours of continuing education to be able to give her patients the best and most up-to-date care options.

Dr. Rizk - Education

After working as a general dentist for 4 years, Dr. Rizk knew that orthodontics would best combine her love of working with children and helping give patients beautiful smiles. She and her husband, a periodontist, moved to Michigan, where Dr. Rizk received her training as an orthodontic specialist at the University of Detroit Mercy and became board-certified soon after.

Dr. Rizk - Family

Originally from southern New Hampshire, she and her husband fell in love with Michigan and decided to make it their home. They live in West Bloomfield with their 3 children, Ahmed, Yousef, and Aminah, and one very spoiled cat named Meezu. When Dr. Rizk is not in the office, you might see her chasing her kids at a local park or find her in Target. She also enjoys reading, traveling, and baking.
