After graduation, Dr. Rediske moved to Vermont because Brattleboro, VT won his heart.

He closed the Townshend office February 2019 and merged the staff and patients to our second location in Brattleboro . Shortly after the merge we began renovations at a new location at 999 Putney Rd.

On weekends in the summer he enjoys getting out his father’s 1957 Ford Thunderbird and going for long drives.

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. The beauty of being a general dentist is that you can pick and choose what you would like to focus on. Dr. Rediske especially loves working with kids and the surgical aspect of dentistry. Over the course of his career, he’s continued to expand his capabilities, and he’s excited to now be placing dental implants.
