Dr. Susan Rizk
Caring, Compassionate, Committed.
A native of southern New Hampshire, Dr. Rizk graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a Bachelors degree in Biology. She received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree with honors from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. After working as a general dentist for 4 years, she knew that orthodontics would best combine her love of working with children and helping give her 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. She then underwent the vigorous process of becoming a board certified orthodontist by the American Board of Orthodontics. A board certified orthodontist is committed to the highest level of patient care including a comprehensive treatment approach to ensure quality work. Only one in three orthodontists are board certified!
Dr. Rizk lives in Troy with her husband and their two very spoiled cats, Meezu and Bosaina. Having always had a soft spot in her heart for cats, in her free-time she volunteers with Tigerlily Cat Rescue, a non-profit organization committed to helping homeless kitties. Dr. Rizk also enjoys cooking, reading, traveling, working out, and has recently taken up tennis.
