Meet Dr. Rinaldi
Jensen Beach cosmetic dentist Dr. Dennis Rinaldi is a fourth generation dentist. Even though Dr. Rinaldi comes from a long line of dental professionals, he didn’t decide on dentistry as a career until his second year of college. He was a pre-med student at the time, and felt his personality and skills made him better suited to dentistry. Dentistry is an artistic, creative field that enables him to improve people’s lives.
Dr. Rinaldi attended Texas A&M University and the University of Kansas as a human biology major before being accepted to dental school at the University of Florida. He graduated dental school in 1984 and went on to complete a general practice residency at Shands Hospital and a VA hospital in Gainesville. This residency helped Dr. Rinaldi experience all facets of general dentistry and learn about the various dental specialties before he went into private practice.
This Cleveland, Ohio native grew up in the Stuart/Jensen Beach area, where his father owned a dental practice. He returned to the area in 1985 and went into practice with his father. Dr. Rinaldi purchased the practice in 1989 when his dad retired. He built the current office in 1996 because he wanted to update the facility and create a different look and feel in the practice.
Continuing education is important to Dr. Rinaldi, and he has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Rinaldi has completed advanced education in aesthetic and restorative dentistry with the Rosenthal Institute of Aesthetic Dentistry and the Hornbrook Functional Aesthetics Program. He also has pursued advanced restorative education on dental implants and completed an associate fellowship in advanced laser dental education. Dr. Rinaldi is also an adjunct instructor for the Indian River State College hygiene and assisting programs.

The thing I enjoy most about dentistry is being able to serve families for generations. I see kids of kids I saw in my practice in the 1980s. I love that!
