I went into the River Practice Specialist Centre for a consultation over a difficult problem I had with my teeth (which my NHS dentist was unable to help with) and they did a thorough examination, then suggested a course of treatment. I took it – and now I have an excellent result that I am more than happy with.
Their practice is modern and clean and has very friendly staff who all act most professionally. It was almost a pleasure to go there – I say almost because as a child I had a fear of the dentist and now, because of my experience there, all that has changed, as I felt no pain during the course of treatment.
I would recommend their services to anyone.
I have always been terrified of the dentist following childhood experiences which actually included the dentist pinning me down in the chair with his knee to anaesthetise me! Despite that, I attended regularly and cared for my teeth diligently.
Imagine my dismay to be told I was developing gum disease at a rapid rate and needed intervention immediately. My local dentist recommended this practice and nervously, I arrived for an initial consultation.
I needn’t have worried. Ben was so professional, he explained the process with clarity and reassurance and each appointment that followed was a learning journey for me as I amended my dental routine with his support and guidance. He was so pleased with the improvement, I did not need the course of antibiotics usually provided and I needed one less appointment. I was thrilled to know I was doing the right thing.
I am now receiving my dental hygiene through this practice. When I didn’t think it could get any better, the hygienist removed a stain that had formed on a front tooth and I now have my confident, sunny smile back.
If you are unsure about approaching this practice, please do not hesitate. I cannot recommend the team highly enough.
I just wanted to put in writing how very pleased I am with the outcome of my treatment and haven’t stopped smiling since.
Right from the word go, which was in 2010, I was very happy with the way you and your very helpful staff supported me and gave me the confidence through the whole process of wearing a fixed brace top and bottom for two years. Thank you.
