Celebrating 20 Years!

Written by: Shayne Wiedemann

Dr. Douglas Rediger, has been serving smiles in Jefferson county and the surrounding area for over 20 years! He has passionately dedicated his time to providing beautiful smiles through high-quality orthodontic care and loves impacting the Missouri community. Dr. Rediger has always been interested in dentistry ever since adolescence having enjoyed visits to his general dentist. His interest in orthodontics grew from going along to his sibling’s orthodontic appointments and being allowed to observe and ask questions from their provider, eventually leading to summer employment in that orthodontic office and slowly getting exposed to the whole process of orthodontics. The positive and transformative process of orthodontic treatment was very appealing to Dr. Rediger. 

Dr. Rediger received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Missouri at Columbia, his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Dentistry and received his Specialist Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Missouri at Kansas City. Dr. Rediger is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, the Missouri Society of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Missouri Dental Association, and the St. Louis Dental Society. 

“I love being able to address patient’s concerns and correct aesthetic and functional issues that have bothered them sometimes for years. The positive changes and the excitement they exhibit at the outcome when treatment is finished is very rewarding. I love the opportunity to interact with our patients and their families.”

Outside of the office, Dr. Rediger is active in supporting local theatrical groups with the Muny and St. Louis Repertory Theater, he is an active volunteer with CARE (St. Louis Center for Animal Rescue and Enrichment) and has participated in numerous presentations to local elementary classes about dentistry and orthodontics. 

He also enjoys spending his free time cheering on sports teams. He loves living in the city and being close to Forest Park, where he enjoys bike riding, visiting the zoo, attending concerts, and seeing shows at the MUNY and the Fox Theater.

“Dr. Rediger and the staff are amazing! Friendly, compassionate, and quick to help out whenever needed! Thanks to all of them for a great experience with braces. The only appointment Josh loves to go to.” -Kelly C., mom of a patient at Rediger Orthodontics

While dedicating his career to orthodontics, Dr. Rediger has not only created many beautiful smiles but has impacted the lives of many patients in 20 years of service to the community. Congratulations on the incredible accomplishment!

Your smile made easy.
