Patient reviews for Dr. Richard A. Racanelli

Insurance was not accepted by doctor.
He's a very good Dentist
He was very kind and patient and listen to what I said.
The staff is so friendly and fast. The dentist is very thorough and genuine. Love this office!
The staff was courteous and very accommodating. The atmosphere was relaxing. Dr. Racanelli was pleasant, quite skilled and follow up as he says he would.
They were extremely comforting and sweet. They understood what I wanted to do about my smile and they helped me make plans for the future. The office is extremely peaceful and inviting. The lady at the front desk is super bubbly and caring. She has a beautiful, inviting smile. She definatley is a huge asset to them and helps the place seem more inviting.
Fabulous and responsive Dentist and staff. Gorgeous office space with complimentary coffee in lobby.
Everyone in the office was very friendly and helpful. If I had to wait, they always kept me informed and updated and even offered to give me a remote control to watch TV. I may have (finally) found a local dentist that I can feel comfortable with.
AMazing staff & Dr. very nice office i would deff be comming back for all of my dental needs.
Doc is incredible. The office staff is so helpful, specifically Rachel, but they're all wonderful. You're always in and out very quickly and they really truly care about their patients. I've been SO happy with my experience at Stunning Smiles!
I love this office everyone here was very genuine, and informative which I love. After sending in my appointment on zocdoc I received a call later on that very same day from Dr. Racanelli, he asked me even more questions since it was going to be my first time going to his office. I appreciated having that personal moment with him before even meeting him, it made things a lot more comfortable before I went in for my visit. The staff was very intelligent and had a reasoning behind what they were doing and why they were doing it. Even though this was my first visit, I truly do highly recommend this dental office!
My tooth was chipped during the weekend so I called Monday and wanted to get an appointment the same day or as soon as possible. I was able to get the same day appointment - nowadays u dont find many doctors would give you the same day appointment. After i arrived, i was called right away as always. Staffs were professional and nice. I was told that it was a minor fix and i didn't have to worry about the payment! Wow, you truly made my day and the visit went smoothly without any fear. Thanks!
Best dentist ever!! Gentle and caring and informative about procedures being performed. Make an appointment at Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas for all your dental needs. You will not be disappointed!
My girlfriend introduced me to Dr. Racanelli's practice 3 years ago and since then, every experience in his office has been better than the previous visit. The Doctor, his amazing staff, his beautiful office and the overall feeling of tranquility while sitting in the chair keeps me going back there! The emergency that brought me to his practice yesterday was handled in the most professional, courteous and expeditious manner that I have ever experienced in going to a dentist. Dr. Racanelli went above and beyond to fix an immediate issue that I had with a crown that had fallen out which was done years ago by an old dentist. I feared that my ability to eat normally would be hindered for weeks maybe even months but the doctor destroyed any fears that I had by easily taking care of my issue immediately, painlessly and with a smile. His assistant Alex was also extremely professional and very friendly while performing some very detailed work that was even cutting into their lunch hour! - And checking in and out was a breeze with Rachael and Summer in command at the front desk. I could not recommend a more friendly, professional and fun dental practice than Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas! Thanks again Dr. Racanelli for saving me in such a time of crisis!
First let me say that I was a person who was VERY AFRAID to go to the dentist. I am 55 years old, but could not get away from the fear of going to the dentist. I have even had teeth completely extracted rather than go through the process of getting them repaired. After realizing, because of my neglect of caring for my teeth, along with the fear of having dental work, I would soon lose all of my teeth if I didn’t change my ways about dental care. So, I thought I would take the quick and sure fire way out. I sought one of those places that would do ALL the work in one visit and then, I would have it all over with. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG…… What a mistake that was. So, I went back to Dr. Racanelli at Stunning Smiles. He had known me from the past when I didn’t give them the opportunity to fix all of my dental problems. He had explained to me before about the processes that would take place over time and how he was confident that if I just trust him and his staff, all would be well. So here I was asking him to fix even more issues that were created trying to take the quick way out. Let me tell you, THEY ARE THE BEST!!! Not only have they repaired every issue that was presented before them, but they did it with “KID” gloves. I can’t tell you how much it meant to be handled with extreme gentleness with every procedure that I had to have. How professional they were when they saw the BAD work that was done by the other dentist. They didn’t have the attitude that “I told you so”, or even talk badly about the other dentist. They just simply went to work with smiles and a caring touch, every step of the way. While I still have some anxiety when visiting Dr. Racanelli, I don’t have any more fear. THAT’S A BIG DIFFERENCE. Dr. Racanelli and his staff are OUTSTANDING. If you are in need of a great dentist and gentle care, you need to visit Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas. By the way, my wife had Invisalign done there, and her smile is “STUNNING”. Thank you Dr. Racanelli Keith C
He is the only dentist I'm not scared of! Not only he is very experienced, careful and gentle, but never trying to trick me with finding extra work for himself.
Dr Racanelli is excellent! Him and his staff are very professional and knowledgeable.
The visit(s) were quick, in-and-out and painless. Very stress free and the Dentist and staff were very nice and accommodating.
Dr.Racanelli and all the staff are the best! They explained everything to me and even the treatment plan.
