“ I have a passion for learning, I love what I do, and I strive for excellence in every aspect of patient care .”- Dr. Ben Tindal
Dr. Tindal was born and raised in northern Indiana, and he moved with his family to Florida right before his senior year of high school. With a true passion for what he does, Dr. Tindal strives to care for every patient as though they were family. He looks forward to serving you and your loved ones using his expertise in dental prosthetics, dental implants, and many other advanced restorative services.
Dr. Tindal was initially drawn to dentistry because it gave him the opportunity to use both his mind and his hands to improve people’s lives in a meaningful way. He often tells his patients that he combines art, science, and engineering to restore their smiles. His dedication to service and technical savvy makes him perfectly suited for the delicate work required of a prosthodontist, and to him, nothing is more fulfilling than knowing he helped give someone their smile and confidence back.
Dr. Tindal received his bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida and his Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Florida. While there, he was awarded for outstanding undergraduate work in the field of prosthodontics by the American College of Prosthodontics.
He continued his education with a three year residency at the University of Florida where he obtained his master’s degree and certificate in prosthodontics. During his third year of residency, he was selected to be the chief resident by his peers.
He has a true love for modern esthetic dentistry and completed his master’s research in the field of composite bonding. He thoroughly enjoys advancing his knowledge in the areas of ceramics, dental implants, and complex multidisciplinary treatment planning.
In order to continually grow and refine his skills, he has active memberships in many professional organizations:
Dr. Tindal enjoys spending his weekends with his family, which includes his wife and four children (two boys and two girls). He also enjoys learning about cars and playing the guitar whenever he can. During football season, you’ll find him cheering for the Florida Gators.
Dr. Tindal is also involved in various charitable organizations, including Project Christmas Smiles (provides free dental care for children in need), the 4th Annual Race for Smiles (benefits the survivors of domestic abuse), and Wine, Woman, and Shoes (which provides support for underprivileged families in Manatee Counties).
