Meet Dr. Rinaldo Caponera
I chose to study orthodontics because of the powerful impact a person's smile can have on their self-esteem. I always try to establish a long-term relationship with my patients and always treat them like they are a part of my family.
After graduating with a degree in chemistry from Emory University, I made my way back to Florida and completed Nova Southeastern University's Dental School 2nd in my class. I was inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon honor society and I continued my studies at Nova to specialize in orthodontics. Upon finishing school with honors in 2004, I partnered with Dr. Norman Gorback until taking over the practice in 2008.
I am Board Eligible by the American Board of Orthodontics and am a member of numerous professional associations including the American Association of Orthodontists, the Florida Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, and the Florida Dental Association. I am on the Executive Council of the Broward County Dental Association. To remain on the cutting edge in my field, I take many continuing education courses in the subjects such as temporary anchorage devices, Invisalign, lasers, lingual braces and self-ligating brackets. I incorporate all of these technologies into my treatment plans.
I feel a deep commitment to my community and volunteer at several charitable organizations including the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Adopt-A-Classroom, The Smile Train, Smiles Change Lives and the Jewish Adoption and Foster Care Options.
I am lucky to be married to my college sweetheart, Marissa. Our amazing son Caleb Toren was born on March 8, 2010. We live with our two dogs, Nadia and Edge. When I'm not in the office, I'm most likely near the ocean enjoying water sports and surfing.
