Dr. Reese Ruder
Dr. Reese Ruder is the eldest son of Dr. Fred Ruder. Dr. Reese Ruder followed in his father's footsteps, also earning his DDS from the University of Maryland in Baltimore where he met his wife, Dr. Sarika Tamaskar. Dr. Reese Ruder is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Reese feels fortunate that he has a career that allows him to directly help people every single day. He enjoys the opportunity to help a patient achieve a brand new smile or to relieve a patient's pain and help them keep their mouth healthy.

Outside of the office, Dr. Reese can be found with his family or playing racquetball, soccer, or basketball.
