Dr. Jonathan Dizon

I have a great mix of support, autonomy, and mentorship to improve every week in different fields of dentistry.

Dr. Jonathan Dizon, Dentist

“I met and interviewed with over a dozen dentists at different practices in search of a place that seemed like the right fit for me. Renken Dentistry stood out among the rest because of their clear mission and vision, wide array of services, updated equipment and supplies, and systems they utilize to deliver care. As an associate dentist, I feel I have a great mix of support, autonomy, and mentorship to improve every week in different fields of dentistry (restorative, endodontics, oral surgery, implants, Invisalign, prosthodontics, CAD/CAM dentistry).”


Dr. Brielle Lira

Working at Renken Dentistry has broadened my abilities and supported my career goals. I feel a sense of purpose here.

Working at Renken Dentistry has broadened my abilities, supported my career goals, and taught what it takes to maintain a successful, thriving practice.

A note from our founder, Dr. Joshua Renken

What You Get Here That You Won't Find at Dental Chains and Other Private Practices


The greatest compliment I've received from patients and team members is that they love being in a place where they hear laughter throughout the office. I've learned the only way to make this possible is to have total clarity around our mission and values. When everyone can rely on sincere mutual intentions, it is possible to enjoy being in a place where patients get healthy, team members grow professionally, and a business thrives. I'm hoping that dentists who are interested in learning about this way of working together will join our residency program. We can't wait to work with you and support you as you grow.
