Meet Dr. Caponera

Dr. Rinaldo Caponera chose to study orthodontics because of the powerful impact a person's smile can have on their self-esteem. He enjoys establishing a long-term relationship with his patients and always treats them like they are a part of his family.

After graduating with a degree in chemistry from Emory University, Dr. Caponera made his way back to Florida and completed Nova Southeastern University's Dental School 2nd in his class. He was inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon honor society and continued his studies at Nova to specialize in orthodontics. Upon finishing school with honors in 2004, Dr. Caponera partnered with Dr. Norman Gorback until taking over the practice in 2008.

Dr. Caponera is 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. He is on the Executive Council of the Broward County Dental Association. To remain on the cutting edge in his field, Dr. Caponera takes many continuing education courses in the subjects such as temporary anchorage devices, Invisalign, lasers, lingual braces and self-ligating brackets. He incorporates all of these technologies into his treatment plans.
