About the Doctor

Palm Deserts Leading General and Cosmetic Dentist…Rene Dell’Aqua is proud to serve the Palm Desert and Palm Springs community and the valley area.

Dr. Rene Dell'Acqua | Palm Desert | Dentistry | Dentist

A graduate of the prestigious University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, she has a private general dentistry practice in Palm Desert, California, with an emphasis on cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. She has been at the same location for 24 years, serving the valleys residents.

Known for her smiles dubbed “The Dell’Acqua Smile”, Dr. Dell’Acqua is a brilliant artist who uses her innate ability to create natural and believable smiles with porcelain crowns and veneers.  Her technical skills are unsurpassed, with the combination of the two giving her the edge in this cosmetic dental industry.  She is sought after by Fortune 500 CEO’s, Academy award winners, professional models, actors, celebrities and pro-athletes.  Patients come from all over the globe to experience her unique practice style and to benefit from her talents and abilities. “Something that people don’t know, is that I also enjoy general dentistry.  I see a range of patients from every walk of life and enjoy the relationships that we build with all of our patients.  To me they are my extended family. There is  a misconception that we are very “expensive” because of some of the high profile patients that we see.  This is simply not true.  We are very competitively priced.  I want people to be able to carry out the best possible treatment and enjoy the benefits of our office.  I love what I do.  I want to share my passion for dentistry with others.”, says Dell’acqua.

Dr. Dell’Acqua spends a significant amount of time taking continuing education courses to stay abreast of all of the new procedures and technology that are available.  She prides herself on choosing only what is best for her patients.  “I will only implement procedures, techniques and materials that I would want in my mouth or my family’s mouths.  I will not jump on a bandwagon because a company has great marketing and patients come through the door looking for that specific product.”, says Dell’Acqua.

A pioneer of Spa Dentistry, Dr. Dell’Acqua saw a need to transform dentistry and her dental office into a comforting warm environment in which her patients could relax and would actually enjoy their visits. Part of this experience is having a foot massage with aromatherapy during a procedure.  This decreases blood pressure, decreases the amount of anesthetic needed and relaxes patients.  For those who would like to sleep through their procedure, Dr. offers sedation dentistry.

Dr. is very involved locally with charitable organizations and has served on the Board of Directors for numerous organizations.  She has a passion for helping people and it shows. She is the former Mrs USA.  She used her title to help speak out on behalf of women and children who have suffered domestic violence and abuse.

She is also the mother of her 28 year old son, Courtland, who is a talented music producer in Los Angeles.
