Melissa Schindel-Kaplan, D.D.S. Dr. Schindel grew up in Long Island, New York, with her parents and younger sister. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1995 with a bachelors degree in the Biological Basis of Behavior and a minor in Psychology. She went on to New York University College of Dentistry where she earned her DDS and then stayed for two more years to complete the post-graduate program in Orthodontics. While studying at NYU, Dr. Schindel was an orthodontic teaching fellow in the Pediatric Department, as well as Coordinator of the Cleft Palate Team. Soon after moving to East Manatee County with her husband in 2003, Dr. Schindel decided that this community would be the perfect place to open the private practice she had been planning since graduating from the orthodontic program at NYU. So in November of 2003, Schindel Orthodontics became a reality and Dr. Schindel began treating patients in her brand new East County office. Dr. Schindel is a member of the America Association of Orthodontists, the Southern Association of Orthodontists, the Florida Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the West Coast District Dental Association, and the Manatee Dental Society. She is also a member of the Sarasota Cleft Lip and Palate team, chairperson of the Manatee Dental Society's Children's Dental Health Month committee, and teacher for the Junior Achievement program in local schools. When not working, Dr. Schindel and her husband enjoy boating, fishing, traveling, golfing, and gardening.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
