From the initial consultation last January to the successful completion last week, my care has been exemplary.
I believe I presented significant challenges, having a long dental history beginning in the late 60’s with poor early cosmetic work in London, the result of which required hospitalisation during the 70’s and led to bridge and crown work for 4 front teeth that lasted until eventual failure last Dec. Severe gum disease, the extent of which I was totally unaware, added to the challenge of restoring my smile!
From the outset, having provided a detailed care plan,Vali has shown immense skill and gentle care, explaining every step of each of the stages with great patience. Ably assisted by Jo, who was always encouraging, cheerful and helpful, and Mitra for the surgery, I always felt confident of a successful outcome. Nothing was ever too much trouble for any of them.
My smile is now beautifully restored and being denture free, even though they were only temporary, is a joy!
My job entails a fair amount of public speaking so I now approach this, plus a milestone 70th birthday with complete confidence, thanks to Vali and the team at River Practice.
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!
I had been having a lot of trouble with a sore mouth over a period of time when my new dentist suggested there was something that could be done and that was to refer me to Jeremy Peak. I was surprised that at my age a brace was suggested but put my trust in Jeremy and went ahead with it. After getting over a few more sore times in the mouth and eating softer food, eventually the brace was removed and what a difference it has made.
Sore mouths are a thing of the past and I am able to eat normal again and smile without it hurting. I have had many comments from people about how lovely my teeth now are and my smile which I owe it all to Jeremy and his team. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were very helpful and considerate and so friendly and welcoming that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone – don’t suffer like I did, it’s never too late to get the problem sorted and then you can smile again!
