Dr. William L. Bender is a Holistic Chiropractor serving the Clinton Township and southeast Michigan community for the last 27 years.
Dr. Bender was born and raised in southeast Michigan. He developed an interest in doctoring by spending many a day at his father's doctors office in Detroit. He has fond memories of going on "house calls" with his dad and getting to work the old Chevy's spot light looking for the addresses on the neighborhood homes and enjoying Top Hat hamburgers along the way.
Dr. Bender did his pre-med studies at Oakland University, Rochester, MI. Dr. Bender's calling to help humanity eventually lead him to one of our nations top chiropractic colleges, Life University, in Marietta, Georgia. Dr. Bender graduated in 1984 and began his practice in the spring of 1985 in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.
It was not long before Dr. Bender's colleagues noticed his leadership abilities and elected him to many positions within the Michigan Chiropractic Council. Dr. Bender rose to President of the state association and eventually Chairman of the Board. He went on to hold a national position in the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations as a District President representing to seven other states.
Currently Dr. Bender has been chosen to present his Wellness seminars to the 127th and 110 Wing Air National Guard through our military's Yellow Ribbon Program. Additionally, Dr. Bender presents seminars on workplace safety, nutrition, chiropractic and various aspects of wellness to local companies, organizations and groups through the Foundation for Wellness Education.
