Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Minelle Tendler was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. As the daughter of two physicians, she knew early on that she had inherited a passion for patient care. She began exploring the idea of dentistry while attending Boston College, where she excelled and graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology. Dr. Tendler earned her dental degree from the University of Puerto Rico, School of Dental Medicine, graduating magna cum laude and in the top 5 percent of her class. She was selected to be a member of the National Dental Honor Society Omicron Kappa Upsilon for her exceptional academic achievements.

Dr. Tendler completed her residency in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics at NOVA Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine and has been practicing orthodontics in South Florida ever since. Dr. Tendler is board eligible for the American Board of Orthodontists.

Dr. Tendler settles for nothing but excellence when it comes to orthodontic treatment. She makes use of the latest technology and newest techniques, devoting many hours a year to continuing education in order to provide her patients with the most up-to-date treatment options and the best possible care. One of Dr. Tendler’s most unique qualities is her authentic Puerto Rican “chispa” or flair. Better described as her enthusiasm for life, Dr. Tendler thrives in her day-to-day interactions with patients and their families, making everyone feel at home and part of the growing Tendler Orthodontics family. That is why she always sits with every patient at every appointment; it’s in her compassionate and caring nature to want to make the orthodontic experience extraordinary.

Dr. Tendler is married to Dr. Alfredo Tendler, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who practices in Delray Beach. They are proud parents of two children, Daniel and Julianna, and spend their free time enjoying the Boca Raton community.
