About Dr. Rintel

Personal Mission
Dr. Rintel’s personal mission is to provide high quality and compassionate care to you and your family.

Dr. Rintel grew up in New York in a dentistry family. His grandfather was a dental technician and his father is an orthodontist. He admired the difference they made in their patients’ lives and knew he wanted to carry on the family tradition. Throughout dental school and residency, Dr. Rintel was dedicated to meeting and exceeding his patients’ expectations. He also stands by a philosophy of providing quality care to his patients with the least amount of surgery, which has earned him trust from patients and confidence from referring dentists.

Hailing from Old Westbury, New York, Dr. Rintel attended Boston University obtaining his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, graduating with honors. He then attended Nova Southeastern University’s College of Dental Medicine where he obtained his DMD. After this, he pursued his studies in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey, and at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth Texas. His residency training was completed at the University of Texas Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Program in Houston, Texas. He is board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Dr. Rintel achieves great patient outcomes by using the most up-to-date technologies, including virtual surgical planning and medical modeling, in order to plan each surgery beforehand and ensure the best possible result. He specializes in dental implant placement, teeth extractions, wisdom teeth removal, bone grafting, facial trauma treatment, and IV sedation.

Personal Interests
He now resides in Lakeland, FL with his wife Stephanie, a native Floridian, and his two children. Outside of surgery, he loves sports, movies, and trivia.

Why Board-Certified Matters?
Board-certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons earn Diplomate status by passing rigorous written and oral exams administered by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. They are committed to continuous professional development, maintaining their competence through ongoing education and recertification every ten years. This dedication is actively promoted by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. In contrast, non-certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons may vary in competence due to reasons such as not pursuing certification, being denied membership, or failing to meet minimum requirements, potentially leading to the loss of their credentials.
