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.
"The patient's health is the biggest priority in treatment at Caponera Orthodontics. A new smile not only looks great but it is healthier."
Dr. Caponera feels a deep commitment to his community and volunteers 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.
He married his college sweetheart, Marissa. They have two amazing boys. Caleb Toren was born on March 8, 2010 and Asher Talon was born October 24, 2016. They also live with their two dogs, Nadia and Edge. When he's not in the office, Dr. Caponera is most likely near the ocean enjoying water sports and surfing.

I highly recommend Caponera Orthodontics. Dr. Caponera and staff are not only professional; they are attentive, compassionate, thorough and patient. My daughter's orthodontic work is impeccable and she has the beautiful smile to prove it!Gwen Barnick
I had my braces on for a little over 2 years and I couldn't be happier with my results! They're super friendly and worked with me even though I was away for school. Extremely professional but makes you feel like family. Thank you for my new smile!Ayanna-Mone Arnold
Dr. Caponera is the BEST around. My teeth had a lot of spacing, before going to Dr. Caponera, but after 2 years of braces my teeth now look great! Dr. Caponera worked so that I would have my braces removed just in time for Christmas and I really appreciate that. The staff are all friendly and a pleasure to talk with, making each visit enjoyable.Neomaru Anderson
I always have a great experience at Dr. Caponera's office. Dr. Caponera is incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and personable. I'm so happy with how he fixed my teeth before my wedding. His office is very clean, and the staff are accommodating with scheduling appointments, and even offer some days with later appointment times.Allison Dauer
Dr. Caponera is Awesome! I had the best experience with his office. I had no problems scheduling appointments, especially those emergencies. Did I mention my under-bite that has been transformed to a new, beautiful, perfectly aligned smile that I get complimented on constantly? Well, I just did!Dionne Reid
Dr. Caponera and the girls in his office are the most professional and helpful doctors office I have ever been to. I'm not easy to please but this office has always been on time, polite, clean and knowledgeable. Both of my kids have gone here and the work, the attention to detail is the best I have ever seen.Yaniv Offir
