My scheduled appointment was for 10:30am, apparently so was 3 other people. An hour later I left without being seen. They take advantage of the fact the people expect to have to wait so to them it's "no big deal". I'm a firm believer in being seen within 15 minutes of my schedule time. Their time is not more valuable than mine. I can also do without the bad attitude when I asked about how much longer it would be. I believe I will find me another dentist closer to home.

Unless y'all want MRSA or staph infections, rethink this fraudulent office. They use household Clorox wipes and the sterilizer is never tested for effectiveness. Don't say that you weren't warned. This is only one reason your health would be compromised.

Dr. Elva does a very good job and I would recommend her to anyone. The other people on here giving bad reviews and talking about greed is the exact opposite experience I've had over the past several years. My previous dentist wanted $1000 for a crown. Dr. Elva did it for $500.

Mario is a wonderful dentist. Him and his wife were referred to me by my mother. Last year he did a bridge for me and let me make payments. Such a sweetheart. He was quick to problem solve a recent dental emergency and though he did Xrays and a small procedure he did not even charge me for the visit! He has a big heart, no doubt about it and is also a very skilled dentist.

mario rapanotti is a total f'n loser. i had to have EVERY tooth in my head re-done that he so called 'worked on'. this guy is a narcissistic lunatic who needs to decide whether he wants to scam real estate or dental work. the sooner he stops denistry, the better either by force or voluntarily. he takes the cake. whomever 'writes' his glowing reviews are either family members or friends, period. his license should be revoked. actually, around 5 years ago he PERSONALLY told me he HATED DENISTRY and didnt not want to do it, that is when he was in the whole in the wall office on jones maltsberger. went to school with the guy he is a real piece of work.

One of the worst experiences in my life! There is a reason he's being investigated for insurance and Medicaid fraud. I lost all my money and most of my teeth as a result of his "work" when I placed my trust in his services. He left a metal post in my gums that was exposed and got infected. He is a money hungry sociopath!

My last visit to the Dr. Mario Rapanotti was eye opener. I had 3 different locations where I had pain. After x-rays he said he could put crowns over two of the teeth. He explained there was nothing wrong, but it would stop any pain. He said one of the pains was just a nagging tooth that would always bother me. The third tooth, he didn't even bother looking at.

I went to another dentist for a second opinion and I do not regret this one bit. The 1st two teeth have minor cracks and need to be fixed. I know this because this dentist actually uses not only x-rays but a digital camera and you could visibly see the cracks. Had Dr. Rapanotti taken the time, he would have seen them. The third tooth, which he had over looked had an abscess that needed to be drained.

I now know that there is a lot of advancements in technology that dentists are using which Rapanotti is not. I would not feel confident in his work after the quick once over he gave me which could have resulted in a lost tooth. Go at your own risk

This man is the best dentist you could ask for. He has totally redone my husbands entire mouth. TWO dentists wanted $20,000+ to do the work that was needed. Dr. Mario did all that was needed and more for less than $6,000. That was all out of pocket because we had no dental insurance. I've been going to him too. Just had a temporary crown and it cost me $300. Need more work, and I'll be going to him. Being a chicken, he made CERTAIN I could feel nothing before starting the work. He is the best dentist I've ever been to!!

My husband and I have seen Dr Rapanotti a few times now and are both happy with his work. I have a terrible fear of dentists (go figure, I'm a Brit, LOL) and he has always been extremely patient with me and understanding of my phobia. He's chatted with us like friends, inquired about our family (and also treats my Sister-in-Law, Niece and Mother-in-Law) and spent the time to share some great stories with us. Being one of the rare dentists that does accept payments, I can highly recommend him and think the user that posted bad reviews about him is merely being misinformed and spiteful. "Stephanie" if you can afford a trip overseas then you can afford to make your dental payments!!! We go to the UK once a year and have never missed a payment yet! Dr Rapanotti is an excellent dentist all the way.

I wanted to respond to the review left by Stephanie. I have been going to Dr. Mario Rapanotti for many years now. He has done wonderful work with crowns for both my husband and myself. I took my grown nephew there also, who had very horrible teeth, and has been ashamed to smile for almost 13 years now. After Dr. Mario got through with his teeth, he now smiles and has a totally different attitude. His teeth are on a payment plan, and he doesn't ask for extension to go on a trip. I think Stephanie is more upset due to them not allowing her to miss any payments. He finances interest free, and does awesome work. She should really stop attempting to hurt someones reputation just because she did not get her way. I bet if he had let her miss the two months, she would have been posting praises about him.
Dr. Mario and Dr. Elva are really awesome dentist.
So what if he lives in the dominion, he earned it by becoming a dentist and performing inexpensive quality work.

I too wasnt going to write a review but Stephanie Z.'s remark about wanting Dr Rapanotti to postpone 2 payments so that she can go on a trip made me sooooo angry, I had to tell her how stupid she is, Dr. Rapanotti did you the favor of letting you pay over time, interest free!!! If stupid people like you asked him to postpone their payments for stupid reasons like a trip then he could probably not afford to extend us financing, interest free. Grow up & and see if you can find another doctor who will give you an interest free loan, hopefully one that will charge you double & who will screw up you dental work and then maybe you will appreciate what he has done for your family for many years, AND BY THE WAY HE DESERVE TO LIVE IN THE DOMINION!!!

I was reading some DDS's review and I found this one from somebody name Stephanie Z, this is ridiculous, she has money to go on a trip but does not have it to pay her Doctor , and she said she has been going for years.....now sudenly is bad, greedy, expensive , typical american greedy dentist....6.4 million dollar house. This is a irresponsible and borderline stalker person.
I wish there is a database for this kind of patients. Be nice to your Doctor , remember he has to deal with people like you everyday.

Mario is awesome. My children and I love this guy, He's friendly, fair and reasonable. His waiting room is always packed with regulars, which is why we decided to go to him. At the end of the day you get what you pay for and with Mario we felt that we got good value.

OK I was not planning to write a review until I read the one left by Brandy. Stephani went too far; she definitely had some problems with Dr. Rapanotti. Anyway, to assure he charges $400 per crown is not TRUE. The Dr. is very friendly but the prices displayed on the outside sign are not exactly the real charges when you visit him. I got a crown very well done and I paid $1,100. However Dr. Rapanotti allowed me to make payments of $100 a month with no financial charges. Not a bad deal after all.

I've had a crown done for only $400 from Dr. Mario Raponotti. He doesn't charge for x-rays. The guy up the street said I need $7000 dollars in dental work. Rapanotti fixed me up for $400. I'm not sure why Stephani has such an issue with him. Maybe he charged her more cause she's rude. The prices for crowns is marked on the billboard out front of the office and it's not thousands. As for vacation.... Perhaps she should manager her money better, so she can pay what she owes instead of complain about her own lack of foresight and financial management. When did it become his fault that you can't pay YOUR bills!

I found this site when looking for a phone number. I have been to Dr. Mario for over 10 years and he is a very good dentist and a caring professional.

Stephanie, it would seem to me that if you could afford to go overseas you can afford your $100 a month payment for services already rendered. Dentistry is expensive, especially crowns. Check with any other dentist in San Antonio (or anywhere else) if you doubt this. Does any debtor let you take 2 months off of paying your bills because you're traveling??!

Dr. Mario has treated my family for about ten years and has always done an excellent job. Unlike Reviewer Stephanie, I do not see him as greedy, but rather a very generous and kind man who does all he can to help ease the burden of pain and of expensive dentistry. His prices are some of the lowest in town. He has continually gone over and above to make sure we received the treatment we needed at a reasonable price. I have witnessed and experienced first hand that what he does is not just his job, it is his ministry. There are not many dentists in town that would accept a measly $100. a month on a 5k debt. Also, did Stephanie give him opportunity to 'fix' the crown, or was it just easier to complain and insult his character? I have and will continue to refer all my friends and family to Dr. Rapanotti.

My husband and I had some treatment with Rapanotti over a year ago, and the combined bill came to over $5,000. You'd think we'd have all gold crowns for that, but no, that was for a couple of fillings and 2 porcelein crowns. Rapanotti accepts payment plans, which was great to start with. Until we asked if we could postpone our January/February payments due to a trip overseas. We were told that our request was, "unacceptable". So basically, it would seem that Mario Rapanotti is desperately in need of $100 per month and can't live without it for 8 weeks. I guess his $6.4 Million dollar house in The Dominion means that he has to scrape together every damned penny he can get. My husband and his family have been seeing Rapanotti for years, giving him business and thousands of dollars in pay. Yet asking for 2 months payment-free (to re-continue paying once we get back from abroad) was just too much to ask. I depise this greedy little man who actually made a total MESS of my teeth. I paid him thousands for 2 crowns... and he left one of them painful and raised, and didn't seem to even notice that the tooth NEXT to the crown was cracked in two. He is a BAD dentist, and like most dentists in America, only give a damn about the ridiculously high fees they charge. Stay away from GREEDY Rapanotti. He's no better than any other dentist.
