About the employer

Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.

The relationship we have with our doctor and our dentist is one of the most intimate outside of our family and friends. The trust we place in their hands is immense, and is a critical component of how confident we feel about the advice they offer and the treatment we receive.

Trust, like the mighty oak, does not grow overnight. It is fragile. It must be nurtured. It requires honesty. Above all else, it must be earnt…

The foundations for earning the trust of patients at Acorn Dental were laid 50 years ago by Dr Bill Cooper, and continues today in the hands of Dr Manoj Parmar and his team. The compelling mix of clinical excellence, warmth, and informality ensures everyone receives the friendliest welcome, free from dental jargon or confusing information.

A valued community dental practice was the intention in 1967, and so it remains in 2017. Providing award winning dental care for the whole family, from orthodontics in childhood to specialist implants and cosmetic dentistry, your trust is in safe hands at Acorn Dental.
