Dr. Walter Renne graduated from the College of Charleston in 2003 and went on to graduate from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) College of Dental Medicine in 2008. He is an Associate Professor and the Assistant Dean of Innovation and Digital Dentistry at the MUSC College of Dental Medicine and is active in undergraduate dental education – holding a full-time faculty position in the Department of Oral Rehabilitation at MUSC.

Dr. Renne is the director for CAD/CAM technologies and runs the CAD/CAM and Aesthetic clinic at MUSC. He has been instrumental in integrating E4D Compare computerized assessment software into the curriculum, where it’s a critical component in Dental Morphology and Fixed Prosthodontic I, II, and II.

A leader in the field of digital dentistry, Dr. Renne maintains an active general dentistry practice that utilizes both the CEREC Omnicam and E4D Planscan systems. His special interests in patient treatment include advances in CAD/CAM dentistry, adhesive dentistry, and conservative dentistry.

He is active in dental research and currently has a patent for a new dental adhesive that is permanently antimicrobial, in addition to having revolutionary bond durability components that prevent enzyme degradation of the hybrid layer – which may prevent recurrent caries and bond breakdown in the long term.
