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.
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!
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.
