BASINGSTOKE’S favourite singing dentist has launched a new calendaer to support a children’s hospital.
Dr Milad Shadrooh, better known as The Singing Dentist, has teamed up with dentists from across the country to create a new calender to fundraise for Great Ormond Street Hospital – the UK’s largest paediatric centre.
The Chequers Dental Surgery dentist soared to fame earlier this year after his videos, which parody music tracks with lyrics about oral healthcare, went viral on social platforms such as The Lad Bible.
They grabbed the attention of television producers and Dr Milad has since gone on to appear on BBC South Today, Good Morning Britain and This Morning. Now Dr Milad is hoping to use his new-found fame to support a charity close to his heart.
Dr Milad told The Gazette: “It’s so important for me to show how dentists really are and in a light where people don’t automatically hate them – so I got 30 dentists, hygienists and nurses to go to my friend’s surgery in Southend and we did a photoshoot.”
He added: “The charity do such a fantastic job for children and I wanted to help them. 100 per cent of proceeds for calendaer and mugs will go to the charity.”
It’s been a busy year for the dentist who now helps many of his 54,000 social media followers with their dental problems via his Tuesday night live cast #Toothsday.
And next year promises to be just as busy for Dr Milad, who will feature in a new programme with dance troop troupe Diversity on New Year’s Day.
“They were so down to earth and nice – it was a privilege to be welcomed on the show. But ultimately my aim hasn’t changed. I want to get people talking about their teeth. Lad Bible gave me a platform and now I just want to help as many people as possible.”
