Fred L. Rudman, DDS

“I graduated from Western Maryland College with a degree in English,” says Dr. Rudman.  “At the time I thought I would become an English teacher. Despite my love for literature, I felt a calling to dentistry.

“Dentistry affords me the opportunity to directly improve the quality of my patients’ lives. Here at Robinwood, I am so happy to be a part of a team that continually strives to provide the highest level of personal and professional service in a caring and gentle manner. I love that my carreer allows me to be a diagnostician. Much like a detective, I follow clues to determine the source of my patients’ discomfort. I also love that my profession enables me to fix broken teeth in much the same way that a carpenter or a mechanic fixes the problems that he confronts.

“I function as an educator as well, teaching my patients the role that good hygiene plays in dental health. The artistic aspect of dentistry—through which it is possible to recreate form, function, and beauty—is most enjoyable. However, it is the personal interaction with folks of all ages that brings me the most joy.

Dr. Rudman enjoys gardening, fly fishing mountain streams, and traveling. He is grateful for his wife, children, grandchildren, and the community in which he resides.
