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.
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!
Really friendly, reassuring staff. I had goofy teeth with a massive gap in between my front teeth, after wearing twin blocks and braces I am the smiliest person ever! Before I had the treatment I never showed my teeth or I put my hand in front of my mouth when I laughed… now I have never been so confident with my teeth! Really really pleased with the result! I was very scared about the braces but the staff reassured me. It’s all been worth it! I can’t stop smiling!
