Think Dental Health Doesn't Matter? Think Again! | Charles Reinertsen | TEDxEustis What to expect in your first dental visit after the shutdown Four Quadrants Advisory | Client Stories | Dr. Chuck Reinertsen




Dr. Charles Reinertsen started his dental career in 1979 after graduating from the University of Florida’s College of Dentistry. After settling his family in Eustis, he opened his family dental practice in Tavares and has been serving the dental needs of local residents there for more than 40 years; he and his patients have grown up together. He’s been a member of the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health for many years. As you get to know Dr. Reinertsen, you’ll notice that he’s made a priority of continuing education throughout his entire career. It’s not uncommon to hear Dr. Reinertsen say that he’s not using the materials or techniques that he learned in school because there are better materials and services now. He encourages his entire team to continually learn and grow to better serve their patients.

Throughout his career, Dr. Reinertsen has volunteered his time and knowledge with the community and in his profession. He has participated in Million Dollar Smiles, Give Kids A Smile, and the Florida Dental Association’s program for National Children’s Dental Health Month. Locally, he has donated his time and skills to Project Dentists Care of Lake County, a volunteer organization dedicated to providing high-quality care through the Lake County Health Department Dental Clinic. Dr. Reinertsen has also served on the Lake County Dental Society’s board in various positions, including president.

Most recently, he founded the charity The Dental–Medical Convergence. Dr. Reinertsen aims to raise awareness about the dental–medical divide in this country and give people the tools and education they need to make healthy choices when it comes to their oral health.

Dr. Reinertsen also found time to write a book. He wrote “The Power of a Really Great Smile” to share stories of patients who have experienced the life-changing effect of improving their smile. As a contributing author, Dr. Reinertsen shared the importance of a great smile in the business arena in a chapter of “Big Ideas for Your Business,” a collaboration of authors associated with America’s PremierExperts®. These leading experts from a variety of industries provide information and insight to consumers as a public service. During his personal time, Dr. Reinertsen enjoys spending time with his friends and family, especially his two grandchildren. He loves traveling and listening to educational material on the go.

Four Quadrants Client Spotlight: Dr. Chuck Reinertson, DMD, LifeTime Dental, Tavares, Fla

Four Quadrants  online


Dr. Chuck Reinertsen once thought as many Dentists do: the key to earning more was to produce more. After all, his central Florida general dental practice grew steadily since 1979; his waiting room always seemed full, and he had a loyal base of patients. What also grew steadily during the same period was his overhead. [...] This is the story of how we convinced an already overbooked Dentist that the key to a happy career and healthy retirement was working smarter instead of harder

I like pain

Healthy Living

Dr. Charles Reinertsen, DMD

2020 I know this sounds funny coming from a dentist, but the older I get, the more I like pain. Please let me explain. In our office, we’ll do everything we can not to create pain and to stop any pain you’re already feeling. But in my 40 years of practicing, I’ve never seen a bigger motivator than pain.
