Felt very relaxed and felt like they cared about my comfort..always checking. The doctor explained what he was going to doand explained as we did each procedure. I never felt any pain either.

I have always been terrified of the dentist and I walked into his office with great trepidation. From the pristineness of the office, to the welcoming manner of Elaine, the receptionist, to Maria, the absolutely kindest nurse I've ever met,I was thrilled! When I met with Dr. Kuranko, I was immediately convinced that he was the best dentist I have ever visited! He educated me as to the condition of my teeth and offered wonderful advice as to how I should move forward. Without doubt, I would recommend everyone in Las Vegas to Dr. Kuranko, I'm a believer!!!

Have been going to this office for close to 2 years. Pretty much the best Dentist I have been to and I have been to quite a few over 62 years. Everyone in the office is fantastic. Always friendly and witha smile on their face. Very accommodating also. Highly highly recommended.

My experience with my recent (and first!) visit to the office of Christopher Kuranko, DDS was excellent. Being able to book my appointment online and filling out most of the forms made my pre-office experience tremendous. When I got to theoffice I needed to fill out a couple extra forms about cancellations and stuff, but it took maybe two minutes. I was seen even before my official start time! The technology they use for xrays and pictures was super cool. I was able to see things about my teeth I would have never been able to really understand myself. It helped me to also make informed decisions based off of Dr. Kuranko's recommendations for treatment. Dr. Kuranko himself performed my initial teeth checkup and he has perfect bedside manner in explaining any issues I had. Stacy performed my cleaning. BEST CLEANING EVER! My teeth felt and looked great after my cleaning. I'm actually looking forward to my six-month checkup. Stacy's bedside manner was also exquisite explaining anything I had questions about. I highly recommend Christopher Kuranko, DDS and his team.

The entire staff was extremely friendly and kind, from the front office, the X-ray tech to the dental hygentist and the dentist. Dr. Kuranko, spent time with me reviewing my X-ray's, and the additional pictures that he took of my teeth.He answered all of my questions with very clear explanations of his recommended treatment plan for my follow up appointments. Please know that, several of the staff members, including Stacy (dental hygentist) and Dr. Kuranko, stayed later than typical business hours to accommodate my appointment. The whole staff goes above and beyond! The office is also very clean and pleasant to visit as a patient.

They accompanied my work schedule by seeing me after hours on a Friday. I was promptly seen and both the hygienist as well as Dr. Kuranko himself were very friendly. After taking a few x-rays, they effectively refilled one of mycavities and sent me on my way. The price of refilling it was way less than what another dentist was looking to charge me. I am so glad I went here instead!

I'm replacing a bridge after 43 yr.s. I have a temporary bridge till my gums heal cause I had a tooth under the old bridge that had rotted away. Instead of 5, now its 6 teeth bridge. OMG I haven't smiledthis much in my life with the old bridge. The temporary looks better then the old bridge. Thank you Dr. Kuranko

I initially went last week and Dr. Kuranko as well as his dental hygienist were very sweet, informative and explained in great detail what my treatment plan would be. They were able to squeeze me in today for the first partof my treatment and I am extremely happy with how easy the process was for me, how comfortable I felt and how attentive they were to my needs. I am extremely happy with my visit and will definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

Have known Dr Kuranko long before he became a Dentist and knew what an outstanding young Man he was and is, coming from a Military Family I believe only helped with his dedication to his skill, was so happy when Hedecided to open an office in Las Vegas! I have been seeing him since he started his practice here and have only good things to say about him and his staff, I have complete confidence in his opinion on my dental health care wheather its work that he performs or should he have to refer me to another specialist! Five Stars out of Five!!
