Dr. Mike Gritzuk’s educational background prior to dentistry was biomedical engineering and sciences specifically related to cardiovascular health. From biomedical engineering to engineering smiles, he is thankful for these experiences.
When Dr. Gritzuk is not practicing dentistry, he is a volunteer and serves as an elected Board of Directors member for the Omaha non-profit C.W. Youth Resource Center (CWYRC). CWYRC’s mission is “to develop programs and activities which prevent youth and young adults from becoming involved in negative behaviors.” The CWYRC offers programs the engage youth in a range of activities, including basketball, music appreciation, peer mediation, tutoring, and most notable – boxing. We are proud to promote a history with over 38 years involvement in the Omaha community, and many more to come. Most recently, national champion Terence “Bud” Crawford has generated tremendous media attention for our organization as a positive resource for youth involvement. Dr. Gritzuk also enjoys outdoor activities including running, cycling, and kayaking. He supports several pet rescue organizations, and is currently training his English Golden Retriever to be a therapy dog to support youth, adults, and senior citizens.
