Dr. Rediske can remember wanting to be a dentist since he was 12, and his mother remembers him expressing this desire when he was five! He relates to Hermy the Elf from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer — he knew he wanted to be a dentist from a very early age.

Over the course of his career, he’s continued to expand his capabilities, and he’s excited to now be placing dental implants.
Meet Dr. Clare Ma
Dr. Ma grew up around dentistry which solidified her wish to become a dentist as her father was a dentist so she saw first hand how much of an effect dentistry has on people’s quality of life and she decided early on she wanted to help people in that way.
She grew up in Andover, Massachusetts and obtained her B.S in Microbiology at the University of Rochester before moving to Philadelphia to attend Temple University Kronberg School of Dentistry where she graduated with honors. She also was one out of two students at Temple University who won the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) Anthony Westwater Jong Memorial Pre-professional Award for their project titled: “Childhood Obesity and Orthodontic Issues: Provider and Organizational Responsibilities in Addressing a Growing Public Health Epidemic.” After graduating from dental school, she realized quickly she would like to move to a more remote, tranquil area and settled in Keene, New Hampshire where she lives with her fiancé, Stephen, and her dog Rocket.
Patients are often impressed by her gentle spirit and her kind chair side manner and with her extensive experience in oral surgery and Invisalign, she complements the team of dentists at West River Family Dental very well.
In her free time she enjoys skiing, hiking, spending time with her fiancé and dog, traveling and trying new and different foods.
Dr. Ma recently attended the class in dental implantology and will be offering implant services to patients soon. We are excited to have Dr. Ma to be part of our team and are excited to work with her to provide excellent dental care to all of our patients.
