Patient testimonials

'Almost a pleasure! well perhaps pleasure is a descriptor too far for any visit to the dentist, but the Acorn team must be very near.  Their clean and bright premises, competent and friendly staff.  The key we surely all look for is confidence in their professional skills, patient care and chewing edge technology.  You won’t be disappointed at the Acorn Dental Surgery.' Mr Norville

‘….We always feel confident in the knowledge that Tim and his Team at all times portray a happy, friendly aura every time we visit making our trip to the dentist a pleasant experience on every occasion’ Steven and Gail Gooch

'I have always been very nervous of visiting the dentist but Tim has helped me to overcome this.  Tim has put me at ease in his caring and professional manner.  My wife and two children are also patients of the surgery and we have all received excellent treatment over the past 14 years.  The very friendly staff and overall atmosphere now makes visiting the dentist a pleasant experience!' Melvyn Wynn

'Over 20 years with Acorn Dental Surgery

I have been going to Acorn Dental surgery for well over 20 years. I started going there when I was working down the road from them when they were in Longlevens in Gloucester. At that time I lived in Cheltenham. Since then I have lived in Stroud and currently I live in Bristol. Throughout all that time I have continued to go to Acorn. I have considered using a more local dentist but always decided in the end that it’s better to stay where I am, a decision I have never regretted.
Generally the staff at Acorn have always been very courteous, helpful and friendly which I always consider a very important part of any service.
I have been going to Jane Brown for my dental hygiene since she started working at Acorn and have always found her calm, relaxed and friendly approach a real boon and of course her skill as a hygienist and concern for her patients excellent. There really isn’t anything I can say that isn’t positive.
Before Tim took over Acorn Mr Day was the dentist there and I always thought he was pretty good. When Tim took over I was a little concerned that he might not be as good and I might have to look elsewhere. I was wrong as he was even better. Again, a very calm and relaxed approach, very friendly and always with genuine concern for his patients I have only positive things to say about Tim. One of the things I always value is the way Tim explains everything to me in a way that is very easy to understand. All the dental nurses throughout the years have been very good too.
All in all my teeth and gums are my inherited weak spot so I have had to have a lot of dental treatment over the years. Thanks to Acorn Dental Surgery I now have everything under control and my teeth and gums are better now than they have been for many years. In conclusion and in my experience I cannot recommend Acorn Dental Surgery highly enough.
One last thing or two that I have to say is that my wife has returned to Acorn after some years of trying other dentists and now realises the value of a really good dentist and surgery. Sometimes she falls asleep on the couch and I have nearly done so on several occasions, that’s because we are relaxed, confident in Tim’s skill and ability to keep any pain or discomfort to a minimum.'
