General InfoPracticing dentistry in a large multi-office group dental "chain" the last 20 years has had its pros and cons. The shuffling of patients from doctor to doctor became something that made the work much less satisfying for me. At The Pittsburgh Dental Spa I plan to follow my patient's progress year after year and develop strong relationships. My vision for The Pittsburgh Dental Spa is to establish exceptional dental practice with a focus on customer service, and treatment plans for each patient that are customized for that persons individual needs. Whether it be some type of sedation, special financial options, or whatever. I know from experience that most dental patients have particular " special needs". I intend to indulge each and every patient to that end. This type of care is very difficult to deliver in a large dental chain clinic atmosphere. In a nutshell, that is why I started The Pittsburgh Dental Spa." The Pittsburgh Dental Spa is located in the heart of The Robinson Commercial district, and overlooking The Robinson Mall. It is conveniently located right off the Parkway West. The shopping strip called "Robinson Court" has ample parking directly in front of the office. There is an Eat n Park restaurant across the parking lot and many stores and business, in the development and very close by. The Pittsburgh Dental Spa sit between UPMC Urgent Care and Window World. When you enter the PDS you will find a large comfortable waiting room with a fireplace and water feature that may help to relax you. Coffee and water are available and there will always be a happy face behind the counter to greet you. Pittsburgh Dental Spa is a "State of the Art" facility focused on delivering quality dentistry in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. The dental chairs are also massage chairs with three different massage patterns and 2 heating levels. In each operators, the reclined patient will notice a ceiling mounted TV directly above them for their use during their procedure. Watching television during treatment can be a welcome distraction for many patients.
If a gentle and compassionate touch is not enough for you, then consider sedation dentistry. I have been doing sedation dentistry for over 15 years with tremendous success. After performing well over 500 cases, I can't recall one single patient who was not satisfied with their sedation dental appointment. At Pittsburgh Dental Spa, I offer several types of sedation. The extremely anxious patient who wants to sleep through their procedure will benefit from I.V. sedation. With I.V. sedation the entire patient's work can be done in one visit. If the patient prefers sedation that is not so deep, then oral sedation will do the trick. The typical oral sedation protocol consists of three pills usually in combination with nitrous oxide sedation.

This Experience was the best I ever had at a dentist office. The office is brand new and clean. The workers are friendly and competent. I have been looking for a new dentist for years, but I will not look any further. Also because I was a new patient I received a free whitening kit, if I could have given this place 10 stars I would have.
If you need a dentist, I highly recommend the Pittsburgh Dental Spa. The staff are very professional and attentive to your needs. I had a cleaning done and an exam which was painless and fast, just the way I like it! Also my free paraffin hand wax was a bonus! Looking foward to my teeth whitening soon to come!
I had to write this review about a new dental office located in Robinson Township. I am not a fan of dentists, however this place is amazing. The decor is absolutely beautiful, but the staff is the reason I got my dental work done at this office. They were so kind and did not talk down to me due the fact I have not seen a dentist in a few years. I had a few teeth that were causing pain and I was embarrassed about the appearance of my teeth. The entire staff made me feel so comfortable and I ended up getting all my work done under oral sedation (which was alot less than IV sedation and worked out great!). My teeth turned out gorgeous and I can smile again. Friends are asking me if I had botox done! Pittsburgh Dental Spa you have a patient for life! Thank you! Eileen B
My name is Adam and I currently live in West Virginia. I'm twenty four years old, and I've always been scared of the dentist; it being either me being nervous of needles/drills or the whole experience itself. As soon as I walked into the Pittsburgh Dental Spa, they have such a welcoming staff to make you feel at ease. I've never felt more comfortable with a dental office then this one. Dr. Tim Runco is the nicest, most caring dentist I've ever met. Every relaxation method is met with your visit at the office.
I travel two hours from my home to the office, and it's worth every bit of time.
I just wanted to write about the wonderful experience I had at the Pittaburgh Dental Spa! It was definitely more like a spa than a dental office. Everyone was so nice from when I walked in Carmen was so helpful with helping me fill out all of the paper work, to when I had my X-rays and teeth cleaned by Joni who was beyond amazing! She was so knowledgable and could not have been any nicer. She made my entire experience a great one! Even during the check out process Ann was also nice as can be! And Dr. Runco being the first time seeing him was wonderful. I highly suggest the Pittsburgh Dental Spa if you are in need of a dentist!
I called on Monday at 9 a.m to request an appointment for a tooth that needed pulled; and I was offered an appointment that SAME DAY at noon. I didn't have transportation so I schedule for that Thursday. ( I knew I needed tooth pulled because I had went to The Dentistry in Greentree that prior Friday and was unhappy with their services and staff.) My sister told me I should go to see Dr. Tim Runco because he was her dentist before she moved and she absolutely loved him.
The Pittsburgh Dental Spa is gorgeous. The colors on the walls are very soothing and I'm not mad at the massage dental chairs. It truly is a Dental Spa.
I really appreciated the type of X-ray machine they use; no more jamming a square mechanism in your mouth cutting your gums. You bite down on a bit and the machine rotates around your head. No discomfort or pain.
Dr. Runco and ALL his staff were Personable, Caring and Very Thorough. I need quite a bit of work done which they will do under IV Sedation and he and his staff made me feel at ease and confident in the work they would be doing on me. I tend not to go to the dentist as often as I should ( hence all the work that I now need) because of my issues with anxiety and fear of pain. I got X-rays and fitted for a partial denture and they made sure the whole process was very comfortable for me. I had to schedule to have the tooth pulled because I am getting it done under IV Sedation along with some other work. I'm actually looking forward to going back to have all the dental work done. How often can you say that about a dentist. They were also less expensive than the other dental office.
A big thanks to Dr. Tim Runco and all the staff at The Pittsburgh Dental Spa. I really appreciate the experience you gave me and am looking forward to working with you to bring me back to dental health.
Dr runco is one of the.nicest dentists I've met he is friendly and knowledg I would love for him to be my dentist but it is impossible to get emergency apts or get help from front desk staff. You can't get to dr runco without an apt which req at least 1 month wait.
I just LOVE this office and staff! I'm not a fan of pain (who is?) but not exactly a dental phobic. Dr. Runco and his staff were so caring and gentle. I endured my first root canal with almost no pain or discomfort. I always heard horror stories of the taboo "root canal" but I could not have enjoyed it more. From the heated massage chair, the flavored lip balm, to enjoying some Kelly Ripa and Michael right above me on the ceiling TV...ALL while getting a root canal done!
Dr. Runco and his staff treat you like family and friends. They get to know you and make you feel comfortable. The office is absolutely beautiful and the whole atmosphere is charming and welcoming.
Very pleased with Dental practice. Love the atmosphere. I would highly recommend this place.
Today Debbie did a deep cleaning on my teeth and gums and they look and feel so much better! I also had my impression taken for my partial and I can't wait to see the results! Teresa was very gentle when taking the impression and took the time to make sure the shade of the teeth was exactly what I wanted. After my appointment, I swung by the lip balm bar and got to pick from all of their new flavors and also chatted with the lovely ladies up front. I love the Pittsburgh Dental Spa and will be recommending all of my friends and family!
