A Texas native, Dr. Schroder traveled the United States with his Air Force family before settling down in San Antonio. He graduated from Central Catholic High School and received his undergraduate degree from St. Mary's University where he played collegiate basketball. He continued his education at the University of Texas Dental School at San Antonio, graduating in 1982.
Following dental school, Dr. Schroder completed a General Practice Residency at the Audie Murphy Veterans Administration Hospital where he received advanced training in anesthesia, endodontics, oral surgery, periodontics and prosthodontics. When his formal education was completed, Dr. Schroder was appointed Assistant Professor in the Postdoctoral General Practice Program at the UT Dental School in San Antonio where he taught for 12 years while developing his private practice. Now over 30 years established, his office provides comprehensive restorative care, including conscious sedation, aesthetics, dental implants and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. He is active in study clubs and restorative academies, staying abreast of advances in dentistry. Dr. Schroder and his staff are continually advancing their skills and each is experienced, compassionate and thorough.
In February 2008 Dr. Schroder was elected into membership in the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry. The Academy is dedicated to the advancement of the art and science of dentistry and is made up of some of the finest dentists in the world. Election is bestowed on those dentists whose contributions to dentistry are recognized as exemplary. Dr. Schroder is a fellow of the American College of Dentists and the International College of Dentists. These honors are evidence of Dr. Schroder's commitment to provide the finest possible care for his patients. In early 2009, Dr. Schroder introduced the first Chairside Oral Scanner in the southern United States into his practice. This device is a digital scanner which eliminates the need for impression material for fabrication of crowns and bridges. His success with this cutting edge technology has led to an emerging lecturing and teaching career, with presentations to dental groups across the US and internationally.
Dr. Schroder is married to Evelyn who has blessed him with 3 incredible children. His daughter, Adrienne, is a graduate of TCU who previously worked as a dental sales representative. Brandon graduated from Texas A&M and is a CPA with an accounting firm in Dallas. Clayton graduated with a degree in Construction Science from Texas A&M and has started his own business in Fredericksburg. They have four awesome grandchildren, to date!
Away from dentistry, Dr. Schroder and Evelyn enjoy the Lone Madrone, a small piece of heaven in the Texas Hill Country. He spends his time there making furniture from the native walnut and cherry trees that cover the property. He also participates in wildlife management and formerly bred Scimitar Horned Oryx for game ranches in Texas. The freedom and satisfaction gained from making this small piece of Texas better by being a good steward of the land is a treasured privilege.
Texas Monthly magazine conducts an annual statewide survey among nearly 10,000 dental professionals to pose the question, “If you or a loved one needed dental care, which dentist would you choose?” In every year since its' inception in 2004, Dr. Schroder has been selected by his peers as one of a select few San Antonio dentists to earn the designation, “Super Dentists in General Practice.” This year, after having been voted a Super Dentist for the last ten consecutive years, Dr. Schroder has been named to the Super Dentist Hall of Fame. The honor supports the mission of this practice:
"We are committed to providing the highest quality of dental care available in an ethical and caring environment. With continual advancement of our knowledge and skills, we will strive to deliver to each patient the type of care that we would accept for our own families."
