Testimonials

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.

2 of my children have had braces through this practice and it has been a pleasure to visit River Practice. The staff are all friendly, the waiting room comfortable and appointments always on time. I would definitely recommend them.
An added bonus is that it is located right in the centre of Truro and so is easily accessible.

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!

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 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!

I would highly recommend the practice to anyone considering cosmetic dental treatment. I had anIncognito brace fitted on both my top and lower set of teeth back in February 2013 and the brace came off in August 2014. My teeth are now straight and how I’ve always wanted them!

I’ve had regular appointments at the practice all throughout the treatment and, even after the removal of braces, I still have had a great after-care service. I was able to pay for the entire treatment on an interest-free payment plan and it included all check-ups, moulds, wire and band changes, the brace itself and now the retainer to keep my teeth straight. All made very simple and easy! Thanks to all the staff here for a great and professional service, and for giving me my new smile!

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.

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.

Heartfelt thanks,

Susan Evans

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!
