I’ve been seeing Dr. Runco for the past five years, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have him as my dentist. The dentist office does a great job keeping up with my appointments and reminding me of upcoming appointments, and I’ve never waited more than five minutes to be taken to the back. The office itself is beautiful, clean, and organized. Every staff member is very kind and sociable. I’m especially pleased with the service because Dr. Runco fit me into his schedule for an emergency appointment over the weekend, which meant I didn’t have to suffer all weekend. He took time away from his family to care for a patient! I strongly recommend Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh, PA to everyone - they’re amazing!
I’m thrilled with the dental work I had done at Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh, PA. I have horrible anxiety when it comes to dentists, but they make me feel relaxed. The dental hygienists are very nice, and they even talk to you as they work on you. I love that each room has a big window, and every time I’m there, I have a beautiful few trees, like something you’d expect at a high-end spa. That alone is enough to calm my nerves. The dentists, especially Dr. Runco, are skilled, competent, and fast. The environment in the office is warm and welcoming, not like the average dental office, and the attention to detail is impeccable. While I sit there, they cover me with a blanket and give me a neck pillow. It’s probably the perfect dentist for kids because there are TVs (complete with corresponding headphones) on the ceilings that you can watch while they work on you. I strongly recommend them to everyone I know. They even have a great referral program!
When my dentist told me I needed a root canal, I instantly thought of how painful it would be. I’ve heard so many horror stories about how terrible it is, and I’ll admit, I was terrified. However, as soon as I set foot inside Clinton Runco & Associates, I felt relaxed. The office had a lot of room and was gorgeous. In less than 5 minutes, Dr. Runco’s assistant brought me back. She was very nice and welcoming. After my x-rays, Dr. Runco walked in and told me everything that was going on. He was very friendly, professional, and competent. Surprisingly, I didn’t feel any pain, not even when he was numbing my mouth. Not only that, it was really quick. I left within 45 minutes of arriving. I don’t know where other people get their root canals, but my experience was amazing. Maybe everyone should go to Dr. Runco in Pittsburgh, PA. I’m so glad I went!
I had a great experience at Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh, PA compared to prior dental experiences. Dr. Runco carefully walked me through every detail of all the work I needed done while addressing my concerns about my jaw issue. The service was amazing, and there was nothing they could have done better. They’re also fairly priced and cooperated with my insurance company. It doesn’t get any better than that!
Dr. Runco and his staff are amazing! They make you feel comfortable and at ease. They greet you by name as soon as you walk in, and not many offices do that. Dr. Runco takes a little extra time and sits right next to you to explain and show you what’s happening in your mouth. They don’t do that at any dental office I’ve been to. Their assistant is also very nice and is highly skilled in the field. We always laugh and have fun, and it takes your mind off of what is happening. Also, they have massage chairs, so you can really relax. I strongly recommend Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh to everyone I know!
Dr. Runco and his staff at Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh are amazing! Every staff member is detail oriented, friendly, and skilled. Every time I’ve had an appointment, I’ve been taken to the back shortly after arriving with barely any wait time. Dr. Runco and his staff are efficient and thoroughly explain what services I need. Their quality of care and positive attitudes are always consistent. For example, I chipped my front teeth in a few places a while ago and was nervous about getting them fixed. Dr. Runco gave me a variety of options to fix my broken smile if I wanted to. He didn’t pressure me at all, but I decided to get them fixed. I’m so incredibly happy with the result. I highly recommend him to everyone!
Our youngest child was overdue for her first dentist check-up, so I quickly searched Google for an affordable dentist near me, which lead us to Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh. (I’m not a fan of overcrowded pediatric dentist offices where the kids are herded around and pushed out the door quickly.) But Clinton Runco & Associates was absolutely delightful from the moment I made the appointment to the minute I said goodbye. The hygienist and Dr. Runco were very kind, helpful, and efficient, and the office was clean and organized. As a new 2-year-old patient, my daughter was treated with respect, which made her first cleaning a positive experience instead of a traumatic one. They offered a lot of extras like warm scented towels, cartoons on TV, bottled water, and a gift bag for new patients that made us feel really special.
Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh is a great family dental office. They even offer pediatric services. Dr. Runco filled one of my three-year-olds cavities and was both accommodating and patient with her. I’ve been to three other dentists before Dr. Runco, and my kids will keep coming back to him until they no longer need pediatric dentistry care. I wish I could give him and Clinton Runco & Associates 100 stars!
I had a follow-up visit with Dr. Runco at Clinton Runco & Associates today. About 20 years ago, I bit the inside of my cheek, and as a result, I had a bump in the corner of my mouth from the trauma. Many dentists told me that I needed to have it removed, but they said I had to see an oral surgeon to do so. I showed Dr. Runco, and he lasered it off right in the office. It only took 20 minutes, and he didn’t even charge me! What other dentist do you know that would do that? Dr. Runco cares for his patients. It was a really easy procedure, and I tell everyone about the great treatment you get in this practice. My smile is stunning and it’s all thanks to him and his staff. I recommend Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh, PA for all your dental needs. You’ll be happy you did!
I’ve never actually wanted to see my oral hygienist, until recently anyway. After multiple bad dental experiences like incorrect diagnosis (pushing me to get a root canal) and treatments that did more harm than good (a dental dam clamp killed part of my gumline), I finally found a dentist’s office I love! Dr. Runco at Clinton Runco & Associates always makes me feel comfortable and welcome. I was really nervous at first, but I really believe that Dr. Runco wanted to help me. He has been with me for the entire journey from explaining the cost to what the equipment does to how to keep my oral health in check. After Dr. Runco scaled some of my teeth, I had to rinse with Peridex for a month, and after regular brushing, flossing, and water-picking, my teeth were stained like they should have been. I couldn’t wait to go to the dentist so that he could tell me whether or not my teeth had improved and so the hygienist could polish my teeth! Turns out, my gums had improved, but I credit most of that to Dr. Runco for being so patient with me and making sure I was comfortable. Call them now. They’ll get you in when you need it, and they’re the best dentist in Pittsburgh, PA!
I really love Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh! They always go above and beyond, and their bedside manner is incredible. They put you at ease, really care about you, and always want you to be happy with your smile. The office is gorgeous and Dr. Runco has a positive demeanor and professionalism that always makes you feel comfortable.
Clinton Runco & Associates is the best dental office I’ve ever been to! I’d even recommend that my own mom see Dr. Runco because he genuinely cares about all his patients. If you’re looking for a dentist who’s patient and updated on the latest dental care procedures with a relaxed atmosphere and a staff that has worked there for a long time, you need to visit Dr. Runco. They even decorate the office for various holidays and perform random acts of kindness. I travel a lot, but he always seems to accommodate my busy schedule. Plus, he remembers every time I’ve been in his office and the staff always calls me by name before I even check in. So if you don’t like your current dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Runco - he’s the best dentist in Pittsburgh, PA!
I had a dentist appointment at Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh, and one of my teeth were giving me problems. It was going to cost me $659. As I was checking out, I noticed a bottle of murky water with a sign that said if you gave $30 to their water charity, they’d take $60 off your bill. Turns out, they would take up to $500 off the bill. So after 3 hours of dental work, it only cost me $165 for the procedure and $250 for the charity. Dr. Runco and his staff were empathetic, highly skilled, and incredibly kind.
Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh deserve all the stars in the world! I’ve been seeing them for about 10 years and have always had the best service. My cousin also saw Dr. Runco for many years before she moved, and one of my best friends has been seeing him for years as well. I love my dental hygienist, who does my cleanings. Everyone is on time, nice, and professional. It’s almost like hanging out with your best friends. We talk about my kids and personal life, much like a hair stylist would. You can’t expect more than that, except for my insurance coverage to be better. I think the price of their teeth whitening gel is fair, and they have super early hours for those who can’t take off of work.
I get really nervous about dentists due to previous encounters, but after my first visit at Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh, I’m not as afraid to get my teeth looked at. Everyone was great from the dentist to the front office staff. They all made me feel welcome, and they really took the time to address my concerns. Some dentists rush through appointments, but that wasn’t how it was with Dr. Runco. He’s the best dentist in Pittsburgh, PA!
Clinton Runco & Associates is a great dental office! I’ve gotten several cavities filled by Dr. Runco. The staff is welcoming, and I’ve waited no more than 5 minutes for my appointment. They even fit me in when I had issues with some dental work, and they fixed the problems. I highly recommend this dental office to anyone in Pittsburgh, PA!
Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh are fantastic! They provide excellent customer service and are funny, genuine, and nice. It’s obvious that some of the staff have been working together for a long time, and they’re great personalities shine through. That also speaks volumes about the work environment. Dr. Runco really listened to me and helped with my concerns when I asked questions. We also spoke about our personal lives, and it felt just like getting coffee with a friend. Everything was great from the check in to the x-ray to the pre-check before I saw Dr. Runco. Clinton Runco & Associates are awesome, and I even got some free time away from the kids to enjoy a little TV.
Clinton Runco & Associates is amazing! I haven’t been to a dentist in 17 years and I was scared, but the pain was so bad, I ended up going to urgent care. When I called the dental office in Pittsburgh, they could hear how much pain I was in and put me on the calendar for the following day because I had called late in the day. When I showed up for my appointment, they talked through everything and helped me calm down. Even though they were all booked up, they fit me in for an emergency tooth extraction (3 wisdom teeth and a molar) and a double root canal due to the pain. They gave me some pills, and I woke up 6 hours later with almost no pain. Everyone was fantastic, but I want to thank Dr. Runco, the hygienist, and the billing manager for taking exceptional care of me.
I’ve been going to Dr. Runco at Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh, PA for about 8 years, and I love the dental care I’ve had there. I initially visited them because I had a small chip on my veneer tooth, and another dentist wanted to replace the entire veneer. Then, he informed me that I’d probably need a root canal on that tooth, but during the appointment, I passed out. And thank goodness I did because I didn’t like the way they handled the situation and refused treatment at that office. Then I went to Dr. Runco, who said all he needed to do was sand down my veneer. Not only did he save me a lot of money (veneers aren’t covered by insurance), but he also saved me from having to get a root canal. Best dentist in Pittsburgh, PA!
Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh, PA is a fantastic practice! I usually don’t like going to the dentist, especially because I needed a lot of work done. I wanted my front teeth fixed so that the transition wasn’t sudden or really noticeable. From the moment I walked in until I got my permanent dental crowns and dental implant, I felt relaxed. My dental hygienist was amiable, kind, and very professional. I highly recommend Dr. Runco – he’s the best dentist in Pittsburgh!
Dr. Runco was incredible! He was super professional, nice, and supportive. I was in a lot of pain, and my usual dentist couldn’t fit me in. Regardless, Dr. Runco’s office was amazing. It was a great experience, and I won’t be seeing anyone else from now on. I highly recommend Clinton Runco & Associates in Pittsburgh to all my friends and family!
Though it sounds crazy, I actually really enjoyed getting my root canal at Clinton Runco & Associates dental office in Pittsburgh, PA. I came in with a tooth that was very sensitive to hot and cold. It hurt so bad that I barely got through the pulp test during the consult. Dr. Runco scheduled me for a root canal treatment not long after, and it was relatively pain-free. Dr. Runco is very relaxed and patient compared to other dentists I’ve seen. I get anxiety during dental visits, but he reassured me that everything would be okay. I trusted them and felt like a part of their family from the start. They’re competent, prepared, always on time, and very knowledgeable. I feel like I can never get ahold of my usual dentist, but this practice always seems to be available. Clinton Runco & Associates has the best dentist in Pittsburgh, PA! If you need some dental work done, check them out.
I visited Clinton Runco & Associates dental office for a routine cleaning and check-up. They did X-rays of my teeth (which were paid for by insurance), and then Dr. Runco came in. He was very friendly and kind. He reviewed my X-rays and assessed my teeth. After finding nothing wrong, he complimented me on my teeth and sent me on my way. Clinton Runco & Associates got right to the point. They didn’t push any further procedures on me like preventive care treatments or unnecessary fillings. So if your teeth are fine, they will not tell you otherwise. Best dentist in Pittsburgh!
I am very surprised and disappointed to have seen negative reviews about Clinton Runco & Associates. I have been visiting them for the past 8 years, ever since I moved here to Pittsburgh, PA. Thankfully I have good teeth, so the main reason I go is for regular cleanings. However, I did have Dr. Clinton Runco replace all of my metal fillings with white ones several years ago, and I haven’t had any problems with my teeth since. The staff there is amazing, and I recommend Clinton Runco & Associates to everyone in the area!
This office is absolutely incredible! Since I work near Clinton Runco & Associates, I decided to try them out for myself, and I’m so glad I did. Dr. Runco is so much better than your average dentist.

The doctors are kind and easy to talk to. This place is awesome.
I haven’t had dental insurance for 3 years, so when I found Doctors Network I made an appointment here for a check up in Pittsburgh PA. My hygienist was great. Her name is escaping me. I do need regular deep cleaning, but I look forward to seeing her again. I needed a couple fillings replaced, and Dr. Runco did them for me. Anesthetic doesn’t always work for me, but the doctor was able to make me feel comfortable enough to get the procedure done. The assistants were knowledgeable and caring. The office is spotless and has a very comfortable atmosphere. This place is wonderful, I would highly recommend it.

General Dentistry for Patients of all Ages in Pittsburgh, PA
General dentistry is as essential to your smile as brushing and flossing your teeth. For example, checkups and cleanings are necessary to prevent dental health complications like tooth cavities and gingivitis. At our Pittsburgh, PA dental office, Dr. Runco and our team offer an array of general dental procedures to help you enjoy a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
The Necessity for General Dentistry
When it comes to your health, prevention is vital. Therefore, the primary focus of exceptional dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing. Besides practicing good hygiene, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the accumulation of oral bacteria into plaque and tartar. Other treatments, such as tooth fillings, dental crowns, dental implants and implant supported prosthesis, and more, can also help you address existing issues before they grow worse.
Excellent Dental Health in the Long Run
During your visit to your dentist’s office, your dentist will carefully perform a comprehensive dental exam for signs of trouble. If any are present, then he or she will recommend an appropriate course of treatment to stop the problem from growing worse. However, ensuring a lifetime of healthy smiles will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
