Dr. Rodney Raanan is a highly-trained and innovative Beverly Hills cosmetic Dentist. He is highly-skilled, detail-oriented, and passionate about perfection for each patient he sees. His impressive history and experience are a testament to his devotion to his patients and his craft.
Under Dr. Rifkin’s tutelage and guidance, Dr. Raanan has reached an uncommon level of skill, that only a handful of dentists in the world can claim.
A long-time Beverly Hills resident, Dr. Rodney Raanan attended the University of Southern California School of Dentistry after earning his undergraduate degree at UCLA with Summa Cum Laude Honors.
Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Raanan studied an additional three years at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine to earn his specialty degree in Prosthodontics and a Masters of Medical Sciences in Oral Biology: a significant achievement reserved for the leading authorities in the field.
From there, he did what the best cosmetic dentists do; find the best cosmetic dentist and learn from them. Through his apprenticeship with Dr. Robert Rifkin, Dr. Raanan took his industry-leading skills to an even higher level. Now, as friends and colleagues, the two continue to hone their skills together, making Rifkin Raanan the most elite cosmetic dental practice in the country.
Like most 21st century industries, cosmetic dentistry has gone digital. Dr. Rodney Raanan has been on the leading edge of that transformation from the beginnings of his career, using computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) design techniques as a resident at Harvard Dental School. Since then, he has continued to sharpen his skills, incorporating revolutionary digital technologies where they make a difference, and applying hand-crafted solutions where they matter most.
Dr. Raanan has extensive experience in the latest innovations in Aesthetic Dentistry, Implant Dentistry, Full Mouth Reconstruction and Rehabilitation, TMJ Disorders, correction of bite problems, and multidisciplinary treatment coordination with highly skilled dental and medical specialists. His position as a leader and educator gives him access to help shape the future of cosmetic dentistry as new techniques and technologies enter the space.
“We know the difference a smile can make. When a patient comes to us and we treat them, we know that every decision we make could impact their chances of landing a job, making a good first impression, or even finding love. That’s why it has to be perfect.”
— Dr. Rodney Raanan
