Rodney D. Hyduk, DDS, MSD

Dr. Hyduk brings over 40 years of experience and American Board-Certification to the Ortho by Hyduk team. His reputation for outstanding patient care, contributions to research, and commitment to education has been recognized across multiple medical disciplines.

Growing up in southeast Michigan, Dr. Hyduk graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. He participated in a rotating internship at Sinai Hospital, Detroit, and completed an orthodontic residency at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Hackensack, New Jersey. At the age of 23, he became the youngest certified orthodontist to practice in the United States.

His professional engagements have led him to affiliations with the American Association of Orthodontists, the Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists, and the Michigan Association of Orthodontists. In 2012, he was elected President of the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics – one of the field’s most prestigious organizations.

Orthodontics as it relates to psychological well-being has motivated Dr. Hyduk to perform extensive research in the field. Through partenerships with numerous hospitals and universities including Fairleigh Dickinson University, Hackensack, NJ, Montefiore Hospital, New York, NY, and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, he has helped the medical community better understand the delicate relationship between degrees of facial deformities, patient self-esteem, and the role of an orthodontist. These experiences have expanded his expertise beyond the orthodontic office, influencing how he approaches care for all patients.

Dr. Hyduk is currently active on the medical staffs at William Beaumont Royal Oak and Troy, St. Joseph Mercy Oakland and Pontiac, and Crittenton Hospitals Rochester, and is a senior team member of the Ian Jackson Craniofacial & Cleft Palate Clinic through the department of neurosurgery at Beaumont, Royal Oak. He is also works as an associate professor through the Department of Surgery at the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine in Rochester, MI, and maintains a residency teaching position at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland. He continues to teach and lecture both nationally & internationally.

Outside of orthodontics, Dr. Hyduk enjoys traveling, golfing, skiing, and spending as much time as possible with his wife and two kids.

“My favorite part of what we do here is making a difference in people’s lives. Something relatively minor can contribute to a big change for that person through the years. I love seeing the satisfaction in my patients over time.”

“Seeing the patient when they come in for the first appointment… you see a lack of confidence in their smile. Then seeing them on their last day of treatment, you get to see the difference in their smile and how happy they now are. I love it.”

“I enjoy the longevity of having a patient coming into the office for 1, 2, 5 years or more. We have children we’ve seen over the course of 20 years! It allows us be a small part of their tremendous personal growth.”

We’re always looking for enthusistic individuals with a passion for patient care to join our team. Do you have an interest in orthodontics?
