Dental Home


The team at Morris & Co Specialist Dental Accountants is led by Nick Ledingham, Sara Parrott, Chris Shaw, Bob Cummings, Tom Slevin and David McIver.

Each of these people has many years experience in looking after dentists, and each of them is responsible for an individual portfolio of dental clients. If you are a client of Morris & Co, then you will be looked after personally and specifically by either Nick, Sara, Chris or Bob who will be your first point of contact.

They are supported by a team of accountants and tax specialists who will deal with the preparation of your accounts, and the preparation of your Tax Return.


Nick Ledingham

Nick Ledingham is a Chartered Accountant and is the Senior Partner at Morris & Co, leading the team that looks after the firm’s dental clients.  He has 25 years’ experience in looking after dentists. He was one of the founder members of NASDAL, the National Association of Specialist Dental Accountants and Lawyers and he is currently Chairman. When he is not talking to, or looking after dentists, he spends his leisure time sailing, but he is also married to a dentist!


Sara Parrott

Sara is a Chartered Accountant and has acted for dentists for longer than she cares to remember, and probably longer than Nick. She came to Morris & Co 20 years ago, after running her own practice which also specialised in acting for dentists. When she isn’t working you may find her tramping across the Pennines with her springer spaniel.


Chris Shaw

Chris is a Chartered Certified Accountant, and has been part of the team at Morris & Co looking after dentists for over 12 years.

He is particularly experienced in dealing with the affairs of a number of “mini corporates” and has particular expertise in IT matters. Chris is so dedicated to his job at Morris & Co looking after our dental clients that he persuaded his daughter to actually become a dentist, and she has recently bought her first practice!


Bob Cummings

Bob is an ex-Tax Inspector, but has looked after tax and accounts for dentists now for almost 30 years. As a “poacher turned game keeper”, he is particularly experienced in dealing with investigations by H M Revenue and Customs into the affairs of dentists. He is also the national Tax Adviser to NASDAL, the National Association of Specialist Dental Accountants and Lawyers. Anyone who speaks to Bob will realise very quickly that he comes originally from North of Hadrian’s Wall!

Tom Slevin

Tom Slevin is a Chartered Accountant and has looked after dentists now for six years. He lectures regularly to VT schemes and in particular has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the NHS Pension Scheme and the regulations surrounding contributions to it.

Tom is originally from Birmingham and attended the University of Manchester from 2009 to 2012. He has a keen interest in a variety of sports and organises the Dental Department fantasy football league each year!

David McIver

David qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2010 and joined the Morris & Co team in 2016. He lectures regularly to Foundation Dental groups and acts for both Principal and Associate Dentists.

When David is not in work he enjoys playing golf and follows Liverpool FC. He is also married to a Dentist.
