I’ve been a patient of stunning smiles for a few years now I have Invisalign, have seen great results however I do still suffer from severe anxiety when it comes to the dentist and they always accommodate me! Rachel my hygienist has always been kind and patient and today I was with Katie for some adjustments with my Invisalign attachments removing and adding them and I was pretty nervous about it and she just went above and beyond for me!! extra numbing and listening to me and overly communicative!! I greatly appreciated her kindness and patience with me I know I can be difficult. Best dentist office in Vegas it’s difficult to find.

For many years of my adult life, I’ve had massive debilitating headaches. I did tons of testing (CT Scan, etc) with multiple doctors, but it was Dr. Racanelli and team who discovered the culprit. I grind (very hard and very often) my teeth together… so much so that my teeth were caving inward, and the teeth themselves were ground down and vertically splitting. I did a regiment of Invisalign to get the teeth back into the correct position. Then, Dr. Racanelli created a QuickSplint to reduce the amount of grinding. (I was grinding straight through my trays). My world changed in an instant. My grinding stopped. My headaches went away. As the final part of my tooth regiment, I had my top front 6 teeth updated with veneers. At first, I was afraid that I’d look like I had fake teeth. They don’t look fake at all. They blend right in with my natural teeth, and I couldn’t be happier. He also updated my QuickSplint to go over my Vivera retainers so that I can keep the headaches away, and protect my teeth for many years. My smile is better. My headaches are gone. Dr. Racanelli and his team are so friendly, professional, and I am forever thankful.

Dr. Racanelli and his staff are professional and I appreciate their excellent work. They use advanced technologies and provide great oral care. I have a partial crown from Dr. Racanelli that he fitted and placed the same day in the office. He did a scan of my tooth once it was prepped and created a custom fit partial that slipped on like a glove. I’ve had a “deep cleaning” done here as well. That’s a fancy name for root scaling and plaining. Let me tell you, they made it as painless as possible. Dr. Racanelli is always buying new equipment and staying cutting edge. The deep cleaning they do is all laser! There is this thin little tool that looks like a fiber optic cable about as thin as a needle with a glowing end. They run that along your gums where your tooth connects and it targets all the necrotic tissue. Seals up your gums right to your tooth so those probe pockets are all 1, 2, or 3. Worked like a charm. The staff here is friendly. The front desk bills correctly. I’ve had good experiences here year after year. They will give you a lot of options for your overall mouth health. They will talk to you about Invisalign every visit – align your teeth properly and then retain them. If you decline, they are not pushy. If you’re looking for a good dentist, Stunning Smiles is the place to go.

I had my first visit at Stunning Smiles and I am so glad I decided to change dentists.  The atmosphere from the minute I walked in was very welcoming.  The staff was very friendly and my hygienist Robin was terrific! She made me comfortable and was very thorough and gentle.  I appreciated the explanation of the process and information on my dental health.  Dr. Racanelli was very personable and took the time to explain what he felt was best for me.  I can tell they have my best interest at heart and I have never had such a good experience before.  I will definitely recommend them to my family and friends. It is so important to trust and feel comfortable with your dentist and that your concerns have been addressed. Because of this and the warm family atmosphere I know I have found the best!

I’ve been to many dental offices across town and Stunning Smiles is by far the best. I have been going to them for a few years now and I always have such a pleasant experience. Dr. Racanelli and his staff are very professional and provide excellent service. They are the best at what they do. If you are not using them I highly recommend you give them a shot!

Karen H. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Very impressed with the professionalism and caring attitudes of all the staff members at Stunning Smiles. Dr. Racanelli was very thorough and did a wonderful job of repairing my tooth problem. I am very nervous when going to the dentist Dr Racanelli as well as the dental hygienists were very gentle and put me at ease. I highly recommend this office for any type of dental care!

Dianne K. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


This review is coming from someone who would have to be sedated before going to the dentist.  Dr. Racanalli and his team are amazing!  From the minute you walk in the door everyone is friendly and understanding.  Over the last year I have had extensive work done and I can honestly say that every experience has been a positive one.  Thank you Dr. Racanalli and team for restoring not only my smile but my trust in the field of dentistry.  You guys rock!!!

Dr. Racanelli is the best dentist in Las Vegas. He’s amazing. I went to him for a bridge. I was nervous and a new patient of his. After my first visit with him, I felt so at ease and comfortable. He’s compassionate, caring, and takes his time to listen. He answers all questions with no rush. The office has state of the art equipment. His office is a very relaxing, clean atmosphere. His staff is amazing.

I had a great stress-free first appointment at Dr. Racanelli’s office. His staff are very sweet and accommodating. It’s nice because they give you a tour of the entire office first which I have never had before and explained everything in detail. I’m happy I found Dr. Racanelli having just moved from California and would recommend highly Stunning Smiles. Extremely professional office with a pleasant atmosphere.

Kristen E. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of this office for five years. In that time I was able to witness the transition of Dr. Racanelli purchasing the practice and making it his own. I love this dentist!!! Dr. Racanelli is amazing. He takes his time with me. I never feel rushed. He is very personable and makes my visit a pleasant one. Not to mention he is the best at what he does. The Staff at Stunning Smiles always makes me feel like a VIP, making sure all my needs are met and getting me in to see the doctor ASAP if I need it. I highly recommend Dr. Racanelli and his staff! Can’t say enough good things about this office!

Nick D. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


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!

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!

Jennie R. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I recently picked up my invisalign retainers and I am thrilled with the results! My smile is perfect.  I only needed a little adjustment, my teeth weren’t that crooked, but I can see a huge improvement in my smile, especially in pictures.  I come in every six months for cleanings and had some fillings taken care of at my last appt and felt nothing! Dr. Racanelli is wonderful and gives painless injections. He also makes sure I’m comfortable throughout the procedure.  Thank you to Dr. Racanelli and the staff.  Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Racanelli and Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas to anyone.

Justice O. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Stunning Smiles is awesome from the reception all the way to Dr. Racanelli. The staff is very inviting and so nice it makes you want to go there every day just to see how there day is going. Not to talk about the pain free amazing job Dr. R did . I had a root canal and needed some work done on my teeth. Came in set a appointment a the doc took real good care of me and I did not feel a thing. Needless to say I have found a dentist home after a few years here in Las Vegas. Dr. Racanelli and the team really are something special. The time they took to make sure I was ok and actually breaking down what they were doing was amazing. GO STUNNING SMILES!!!

Jeanine A. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


THEE BEST STAFF! I normally dread going to the dentist! I needed to visit the dentist asap because my wisdom teeth need to be extracted, and I actually found stunning smiles from the list of dentist in my area, given to me by my insurance provider. I am VERY glad I found this place! Amazing customer service from the moment I called to book my appointment. They got me in as soon as possible! When I showed up for my appointment, my first thought was that the office was beautiful and the whole staff was very helpful and friendly. Rachel took me on a little tour around the office and I was amazed at all the newest technology! I honestly cant pin point anything in specific about what I loved about this place, it was the whole experience! From the moment I got there to the moment I left! I finally found a dentist that I feel comfortable with and assured that I am in good hands!! Thank you Rachel, Richard, and Casey for being so informative about everything and you guys are great!!

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!

Vivianna T. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


If your anything like me, picky about who’s in your mouth, this is the office for you. The whole team go out of their way to make sure you feel welcomed & COMFORTABLE. My hygienist Rachael was so sweet and gentle. Her friendly personality made my normally nerve racking cleaning a BREEZE! I cant say enough about Dr.Racanelli! You can tell he has a-lot of expertise and makes you feel comfortable in the chair. His out of the box thinking makes him the perfect dentist! I love this office! I would take my cat here if I could! LOLOL!

Dr. Racanelli goes the extra mile for his patients. I had effectively a full mouth reconstruction with Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas and from beginning to end it was a pleasant experience. The office staff is welcoming and professional, and the dental team is highly experienced and equipped with the best technology in dentistry. Amazing results at a more than fair price. Thank you Stunning Smiles!

They Dr. R came highly recommended from the G4 dental office. I’m new to the area and wanted to make sure my daughters would get the best dental care. Julia the receptionist and the front staff are amazing. They take your temperature as soon as you walk I was there they were constantly wiping down the door handles and areas. That put me at ease. Our hygienist was so sweet my daughter loved her, we talked for a bit and Dr. R came in. He talked to me and my daughter general questions the conversation flowed naturally I felt as if he’s been our dentist for years. she was there for routine cleaning. Was a great experience for my daughter and me as parent. I’m happy of the referrals our family just found us a new dentist Thank you Stunning Dentistry. Blessings and happy holidays

Shakti G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t give this 5 star review lightly. First of all if you have anxiety about going to the dentist then you should go see Dr. Racaneli and his staff. All of them are extremely compassionate. I am incredibly impressed with how professional and caring everyone is. I am facing some pretty serious dental work and was a little tearful about it and this is the first time a dentist and staff was understanding about how hard it was to receive that kind of news. It’s really hard to put into words how wonderful they are. I didn’t feel rushed nor did I feel like they were going to try to spell me services I didn’t need. Their goal is to help you have the best care and give you all the information to make the best decision you can for your oral health.  And I haven’t even discussed that they are a state of the art facility that has their own lab in house so services that you do need to have done they can accommodate the same day. I’m thrilled to be a patient of Dr. Racaneli and I highly recommend him!

Sharon B. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Racanelli for 4 years now. He and his staff are the best. Everyone is friendly and your comfort is important to them, because lets face it, not many of us like going to the dentist. I had gone thru a teeth whitening that i had issues with, sensitivity with in office treatment so much so that I couldn’t even sit thru it. When they asked if I wanted to try it again, I asked if I could have novocaine and Dr. Racanelli said it wouldn’t be an issue. They have always been very accommodating and they care how your treatments went (crowns, fillings etc) by following up that night or the next day to see how you’re doing.  I highly recommend Dr. Racanelli

Alaishia P. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Racanelli to start invisalign and during that entire process I was so incredibly happy with the results that I was seeing that I now go for cleanings and soon will get a vaneer. Dr. Racanelli is very professional and very friendly. He explained step by step everything that he was doing and what was going to be done and was patient and concerned with any questions that I might have. He explained everything to me and made me feel very relaxed… if I didn’t understand something he would explain until I did…The energy and feeling in his office is very professional and caring. You can tell that him and his entire team are there to make sure you walk out of there smiling and very satisfied with your visit and every time I’ve been there I have… His entire team are all very professional and friendly… Casey, Tara, Heather, the front desk girls Jamie, Chanda and even Dr. Racanelli’s wife Jennifer works there…They are all great!! if I have missed anyone on the team I am sorry but you are also included… Everyone has been awesome!! My husband Robert also started to see him for a much more involved procedure and when he came home and opened his mouth I was so overwhelmed with how unbelievably awesome his teeth looked that I cried on sight of seeing him walk in and smile at me… Dr Racanelli and his entire team are out of this world phenomenal!! 5.0 star rating

Professionalism is the word that describes Stunning Smiles. From the doctor calling me directly to confirm my appointment to the terrific communication with Julia, front desk scheduler, everything was terrific. This team understands the value of exceptional customer service. Susan, my hygienist, blew me away with the way she welcomed me, gave me a tour of the facilities, and did a terrific job cleaning my teeth and holding me accountable to doing more home care. I can’t say enough about this team. Looking forward to working with them to fix my smile in the coming months.

Such a welcoming environment. The whole group is friendly and personable. I went for Invisalign consultation and they are all very informative on the process. The Dr explained everything in great detail. Was very attentive to my needs and concerns. They were not pushy at all to get things started, and completely willing and understanding to work with my schedule. The package included more than other places I got quotes for and pricing is very reasonable. I can’t wait to begin with my new dental family!

Keith C. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Hello, it’s me again…LOL! I’m almost done with all the work that Dr. Racanelli had to re-do from another dentist that I thought could fast track the repair of my teeth. Bottom line, there are no short cuts for getting your teeth done the right way. As afraid as I am of the Dentist, I am so happy that Dr. Racanelli and his staff gave me the confidence to keep going with my appointments and repairs. It’s been a long journey but I am almost at the finish line. I tell you, if you have fears of the Dentist and that is keeping you from having stunning smile, go see Dr. Racanelli, it will actually change your thinking when it comes to you smile and your teeth.

Ekaterina T. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


The nicest people! I had deep cleaning and I can’t believe the difference in the service and mostly the results. Ive had that done once a year for the last 10 years, never seeing too much progress in my gum health. This office uses laser treatment in addition, which helped a lot. They are extremely detailed. I also got braces. The doctor is amazing and when I knocked my bracket off, they fixed it right away. The office is very nice and they make you feel special. I love Dr. Recanelli and his work. Everybody in the office makes sure that their patients are comfortable and happy. I’ve had lots of dental work in the past (a lot more than normal) and this is the first time I can say that I am in good hands. Very happy with my choice

Anna R. from Boulder City, NV (Source: Yelp)


Not with just Dr. Racanelli but every single encounterment at this office is worth the 5 star rating. Not one employee lacks courtesy, patience, bedside manners, or empathy. I’ve experienced extreme anxiety my whole life and the past 2-3 years I can say I’ve come a very long way and the credit is due to this office and this dentist. His work is impeccable and the service comes full circle every time. Please check out Stunning Smiles for your next work up !

I came to Stunning Smiles with teeth that left a lot to be desired. They helped me design a long-term plan to restore their function, appearance, and health. Initially, the focus was to restore the health of my teeth and gums in order to build upon a solid foundation. Over the course of a year, we progressed through root canals, bone grafts, crowns, 3 implants, and 9 veneers. It was a very collaborative and friendly process and I was always very well informed. I now have a fully functioning set of teeth that look absolutely terrific. I couldn’t be happier. Thanks to Dr. Racanelli, and the Stunning Smiles staff, I have been able to place a check on my bucket list. One of the best things I’ve ever done. Thank you!

I highly recommend Stunning Smiles! I’ve had a number of procedures completed here, and all have been done extremely well. Dr. Racanelli is a great guy who performs high quality dentistry. The staff is very inviting and informative. I feel like the whole team genuinely cares about my treatments. I’ll definitely be continuing with them for all my needs. Definitely the best in all of Las Vegas!

I stepped in as a new patient and left as a believer! The staff and doctor are friendly, informative and professional. I got a tour of the facility and appreciated their investments into the latest technology. The competency of the folks are cut above. The credentials drew me in, the stunning people bring me back. I definitely recommend this clinic.

Having just moved from Canada in July, we were in need of not only a god dentist, but a great one and Dr. Racanelli never fails to exceed our expectations! On our very first visit, he took his time to go over each individual tooth, explained in depth why things needed to be done and came up with a great game plan moving forward for quite an extensive amount of work that needed to be done. His dentistry is extremely preventative and not reactive! That is A+ in our eyes. He also gives great restaurant recommendations and has a very charming personalitly. I am a very nervous person when it comes to dentist appointments and he is very patient and encouraging and has no problem answering silly questions or explaining procedures as he does them. He even goes above and beyond, and calls after your appointment to make sure you are still feeling well. Because of Dr. Racanelli I can say with confidence I am becoming less and less nervous to sit in the chair! His entire office staff are understanding and wonderful as well and are very willing to work with you on coverage plans and scheduling. Overall, it is a joy to visit Dr. Racanelli and his team whether it’s for just a cleaning or for major dental work – and that is something I NEVER thought I would say about any dentist!

Best Dentist office I have ever been. The moment I made my first call to make appointment April made me feel welcome.  I was extremely satisfied with the friendliness of the staff. Dr Racannelli talked me through the entire process. His professionalism was the best I have experienced. His work was impeccable. I highly recommend Dr Raccanelli and his practice. Kudos to his amazing staff, especially April and Kristina.  Thank you for my stunning smile!

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.

Having moved our family of 5 across the country in the middle of a pandemic, we quickly needed to settle into a groove and finding a good dentist was right up there as the least favorite of our upcoming priorities. From the moment my family and I walked in the door, the Stunning Smiles staff quickly proved that it was one of the most easy transitions we made! They were welcoming, professional and a breath of fresh air. I’ve never had a more thorough and stress-free experience at any other dentist office… Quite literally from one side of the country to the other! Dr Richard Rancanelli and his staff were all excited to meet us, ready to engage and handled us each with the upmost respect and care. They were so dialed that it was clear we were in the best hands and couldn’t be happier to to have landed in town and feel like we’ve hit the ground running. Special Thanks to Rich & the SS team – You’re the best! KC & the sunshine band 😉
