Dr Renton Tindall qualified as a dentist from Wits in 1973. After 11 years in general practice returned to Wits to specialise in orthodontics with a master’s degree in 1986.
Was in private orthodontic practice in Musgrave Park for 13 years before leaving to work in the UK. Returned after 7 years and re-established a specialist orthodontic practice in Durban North for 10 years before recently joining the Core Medical Team.
Has served as president on both the local KZN Dental Association and the national South African Orthodontic Society.
While in the UK was exposed to very many advances in orthodontics especially in the passive self-ligating orthodontic technique, which has made orthodontic treatment very much more efficient and far more comfortable and is particularly effective for adults.
