Your clinic

We strive to reach the pinnacle of clinical excellence as well as delivering on a promise for the best levels of patient care.  At Dental Shades, our aim is always to deliver pain-free treatment with the utmost efficiency and one of the ways we do this is by utilising cutting edge technology. We invest – you are rewarded.

What makes us different?

Latest technology

  • ‘Drill free’ treatment – we use technology such as Icon to treat dental decay without using the dental drill for maximum comfort and for the best possible patient experience.
  • Magnification dentistry – our dentists use high magnification loupes as routine. This ensures we can see the finest details and scrutinise our results to the highest degree.
  • Digital dentistry – we use digital imaging to ensure the lowest radiation dose to our patients with enhanced accuracy.  Digital x-rays are safer and more convenient for you than traditional x-rays. They reduce radiation exposure by up to 80%.
  • Air Abrasion – Air Abrasion is the latest way to remove stubborn stains from teeth to leave them looking clean and sparkling.
  • Intra Oral Camera – we use this small pen-shaped camera to give you a tour of the inside of your mouth.  This way you can see what we can see and better understand any recommendations that we make.

High standards

  • Patient Education – We use special software to explain diagnoses, procedures, alternative treatments and aftercare instructions to you.
  • Latest materials – we only use the very finest dental materials and products as our patients deserve the best results with the most durability possible.
  • Master dental technicians – the dental laboratory technicians and ceramists with whom we collaborate are chosen because they are exceptional craftspeople.
  • Health and Safety – we exercise exceptional control of all aspects of infection management and levels of scrupulous cleanliness. Our practices contain the most advanced sterilisation equipment, to ensure you are safe at all times.
  • Care Quality Commission registered

Our Contributions

Make A Dentist Charity

Make A Dentist (MAD) is a British National Organisation that was set up in 2009 by Dr Saeid Haghri and Dr Sundeep Rooprai.  The organization is composed of over 20 dentists and dental professionals with the prime aim to ‘recycle educational resources’.

Throughout the year there is a campaign of collecting dental and medical goods relating to work and education of dentistry, which are then shipped to dental schools in Africa where there is most need.  A dental camp is also held in a capital that is chosen every year to treat acute dental disease and emergencies free of charge.  Funds for our work is raised in the form of organising national continual professional development conference and events.

We are privileged to work as dentists in one of the richest countries in the world where we have the power of funding our education and professional development. However, our colleagues in Zimbabwe are not as fortunate as we are and our pledge is to support them.
