Welcome to River Practice - Cornwall's award-winning multi-specialist dental centre including Orthodontics, Endodontics, Dental Implants & Periodontics.

Our children’s teeth are extremely important so when we, as parents, were told that our daughter required substantial orthodontic work, we sought a specialist in our local area of Helston.
Unfortunately, that specialist turned out to be nothing of the kind; so we ventured further afield and are truly blessed to have found River Practice.
As you approach the building, the facade exudes professionalism and a cut above the rest; the reception, although small, is modern and bright with extremely helpful staff eager and poised to answer any questions you may wish to ask.
The dentists/orthodontists are all super friendly, knowledgeable and the best at what they do! (The proof is in their results.) As a parent, all treatment was explained in great detail before commencement and in ‘laymans’ terms to our daughter which put us all at ease from the off. Today was ‘the great reveal’ after 13 months, her braces were removed and a beautiful smile exposing perfect teeth appeared!
I highly recommend River Practice to family and friends alike; our son is currently having treatment here also!

I just wanted to write to say how pleased I am with the experience I’ve had with Jeremy, Laura and the team at the River Practice.

It took me the best part of 12 years to build up the courage to improve my smile. I was worried about the discomfort of the treatment, if my speech would be affected (I meet clients a lot for my work) and the expense of having orthodontic work carried out – and I realise now I needn’t have worried about a thing!

Wearing the incognito braces was an absolute pleasure (I’m almost sad to see them go), and though there were a couple of occasions when I experienced a little discomfort, it really wasn’t that bad at all. Speech-wise, I had very slight lisp for the first couple of days after having the braces fitted, but my mouth got used to them pretty quickly and my “Th’s” and my “S’s” quickly returned to normal. In terms of the cost, though it seemed expensive initially, as soon as saw the care Jeremy and the team provided, and the improvements the treatment offered – it suddenly seemed like actually it was excellent value for money!

I would encourage anybody considering orthodontic care at the River Practice to go for it – you’ll be delighted with the experience and the results!

My son Jacob had braces for nearly 2 years & we would both highly recommend the treatment he had at the River Practice. His teeth are now lovely and straight & his smile is gorgeous! Thank you!!
