Dr. Mingel, a native of South Florida, received his Bachelor’s degree from Columbia University in New York City with a major in Biology.  He then went on to receive his dental degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston.  After graduation, Dr. Mingel practiced dentistry in Boston for a few years before returning home to Florida to be closer to family and to pursue his dream of starting his own dental practice.  He is committed to providing the best possible dental experience to the residents of Fort Lauderdale, Galt Mile, Wilton Manors and the surrounding communities.

Dr. Mingel became involved in epilepsy advocacy after losing his 21-month-old daughter, Emmy, to Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) in July 2013.  Since then, he and his family have participated in our annual Broward Walk the Talk as part of “Team Emmy,” in honor of their daughter.  In 2015, he joined EFOF’s Board of Directors.  In addition to serving on the Board, Dr. Mingel and his wife, Stefanie, have been ambassadors for the Danny Did Foundation, which is dedicated to advancing awareness of epilepsy and SUDEP, since 2014.

Dr. Mingel is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the South Florida District Dental Association and the Broward County Dental Association.
