Dr. Philip Friedman is a fourth generation Savannahian. His great-grandmother founded Friedman's Art Store in the early 1900s. After attending the Savannah Country Day School, Dr. Friedman graduated from the University of Georgia. He completed his dental degree at Marquette University School of Dentistry in 1993. Dr. Friedman was the president of his class in dental school during his four years at Marquette. He worked with former Governor Tommy Thompson (WI) to expand quality dental care for the indigent, senior citizens, and patients with special needs. After receiving his dental degree, Dr. Friedman completed a general practice residency at Ravenswood Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Friedman served as a clinical dentist at the Armstrong Atlantic University School of Dental Hygiene between 1994 and 1996. He is a member of the American Dental Association and the Georgia Dental Association. Dr. Friedman opened his practice in 1994 after returning home to Savannah. He focuses his practice on family and cosmetic dentistry. His practice philosophy is patient-centered where the emphasis is on prevention of dental disease through education of his patients. Dr. Friedman resides in Savannah with his wife Lisa and their two children, Josh and Callie. Dr. Friedman is active in his son's Boy Scout Troop (7) and is also a supporter of scouting. He also participates in hobbies such as home music production and recording where he enjoys singing, playing guitar, bass, piano and drums, and composing music in his home studio. Physical health is also very important to Dr. Friedman. He is a board member and past president of the Team Savannah Olympic Weightlifting Program. Dr. Friedman began his weightlifting career at the age of nine with the help of coaches Howard and Michael Cohen. He has been a state and a national Junior Olympic champion, and has won the National Masters tournament twice. In 1981 Dr. Friedman was the bronze medalist in the Maccabia Games in Tel Aviv, Israel. In 2008 he was the bronze medalist in the Pan-American Games in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Dr. Friedman continues to train and compete with his two children. And one more fun fact about Dr. Friedman: He loves cooking! In 2007 he donated one of his favorite recipes to a fundraising cooking competition "100 Celebrity Men Who Cook" to benefit the United Negro College Fund. Dr. Friedman's Sunday pot roast recipe took first place for a great cause!
