Dr. Render is not one of the current crop of self-proclaimed “Cosmetic Dentists”— far from it. After four years of dental school he completed a two year post-graduate prosthodontics residency program followed by board certification in this specialty. He has had a long career as an educator at the post-graduate level and eventually served as the Director of Prosthodontic Residency at William Beumont Medical Center while serving as a Colonel in the US Army. He has treated innumerable complex and routine prosthodontics' patients in his 30 years as a specialist. Need an implant? Dr. Render did his first 25 years ago.

* - What is a prosthodontist?
Additional training for prosthodontists is earned through a university or hospital-based advanced education program accredited by the American Dental Association. This specialty education provides knowledge and skills beyond the training of general dentists and includes advanced-level lectures, courses, clinical and laboratory experiences, patient care and scholarly research. Prosthodontists are proficient in comprehensive oral health diagnosis, treatment planning and restoration. A prosthodontist is the skilled architect who can restore optimal function and appearance to your smile.
