Dr Milad Shadrooh, a dentist from Basingstoke in Hampshire, is making his name as ‘The Singing Dentist’ – the man behind the eyebrows and funny quips in a series of videos. He told a local paper about his first video: “It all started out as a bit of a joke really, there’s so many bad, illegal tooth whitening products out there that can be really damaging to people in the long term that I made a video and put it on Facebook and different forums and groups for the dentists to see.”
So far Dr Shadrooh has reworked classics by the like of chart-toppers Pharell Williams, Michael Jackson and Omi into smooth skits including Gappy, Wanna Do Some Teeth Whitening, Filler and Sweet Eater. Flossing, fillings and smoking are all aspects of his patients life Dr Shadrooh writes about in each of his songs.
“The idea is to show members of the public how important dental hygiene is,” Dr Shadrooh told the paper. “It’s so important to me to spread this in a positive light because dentistry has this status as being something which is quite scary. I just want to get rid of that and hopefully teach some fun lessons along the way.”
A number of further newspapers, including the Metro, then local news TV picked up this good dental themed news story, and Sr Shadrooh has always stressed the reasons for the words are to encourage patients they can improve their oral health.
