We’ve asked him all the questions you want to know the answers to…
ALL parents know it can be difficult to make tooth brushing enjoyable for kids.
But all parents also know the importance of introducing good oral hygiene practices early on, and that it’s vital to make visiting the dentist and cleaning their little toothiepegs as fun as possible.
This is where acquainting your child with the fun-filled videos of The Singing Dentist aka Dr Milad Shadrooh can help.
So who is he and what does he sing about?
Who is The Singing Dentist aka Dr Milad Shadrooh?
Dr Milad Shadrooh, otherwise known as The Singing Dentist is the Principal Dentist and owner of Chequers Dental in Basingstoke.
He doesn’t only fill cavities and pull teeth – he also uploads videos of himself singing hilarious dental related parodies of popular songs to try to engage children in the importance of oral hygiene.
The 36-year-old who is married with two toddlers of his own, has appeared on Good Morning Britain, This Morning and Lorraine and has treated viewers to live renditions of his ditties, sending his videos viral.
Everything from This Is How We Brush Teeth (parody of Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It) to Return Of The Plaque (Mark Morrison’s Return Of The Mack) is covered in his attempt to pass on dental care advice.

Dr Shadrooh described to us how The Singing Dentist got started;
“I did a freestyle parody last year randomly at the end of the day in my surgery and sent it to a few friends…they posted it on social media and then it started to get shared and I saw people were enjoying seeing a dentist in a different way, so I thought I could use that as a platform to educate in a fun and positive way…. that’s how the Singing Dentist was born.”
What Ed Sheeran song has he covered?
The Singing Dentist’s latest tune is a cover of Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You.
Dr Milad is hoping that Ed won’t be offended by his parody saying;
“I did hear from Mark Morrison’s camp when I did Return of the Plaque and I was told he liked the song which was amazing to hear!
“I would love it if Ed Sheeran heard this one though, he seems like such a genuine guy with a great sense of humour so I hope he’s not mad I’ve ruined his song!!”

Where can I find him?
His Facebook page has over 147,000 followers and he engages with his fans in dental banter and makes dentistry FUN.
If you’re really a fan, you can also buy a Singing Dentist mug or calendar in support of the Great Ormond Street Hospital.
If it’s his dentistry skills you’re after you may have a bit of a wait as his practice is now oversubscribed as a result of his videos.
“It is [oversubscribed] now!! I am getting messages from people all over the world wanting to come to my clinic! But I never intended for this to be a marketing exercise, it was purely to raise awareness and get people talking about their teeth! And to bring some fun into it! “
Milad tells us that he’s had messages from all over the world including Australia and New Zealand, but he’s not in it for the fame – just to raise awareness, he says;
“The best messages are when mums tell me that their kids are now brushing better because of my songs, or when nervous patients tell me that because of my songs, they are now going to the dentist and getting over their anxiety! That was always my plan with this and I’m chuffed that it is working! “
