Written Testimonials

“I thought it all went very well and with very little pain and I don’t like going to the Dentist. Sonny was very patient and took his time, this was all very good for me because I didn’t want a rush job.
So: Good job –Sonny.”

Liam McInally

“Found the practice to be very helpful and Sonny and all the staff are more than capable. And definitely better than the last dentist!
I thank you all”

“I am just sending this email to express my sincere thanks to Saeid Haghri.
I have never been a fan of the dentist and Saeid has to put up with me telling him I don’t like dentists and my annoying nervous behaviour every time I walk in!
I came in on Wednesday (3rd August) as an emergency appointment with serve tooth, face, head and ear pain (followed by tears) distraught at having to visit the dentist and that I was due to be a bridesmaid the next day. (I really didn’t want to be a grumpy bridesmaid!) Saeid and his dental nurse were lovely to me, making me smile and relax and more importantly solving my pain.
Nothing ever seems too much trouble when I visit them, always making time to see a treatment through, constantly reassuring me, explaining what they are going to do, giving clear information and options and both of them chucking in the odd joke or two, which truly are worth there weight in gold!
I have never experienced a dental clinic like this and only wish I had found you all sooner, this includes the reception staff who are always friendly and helpful, to Bernice the hygienist, who also provides an outstanding and caring service.

Please pass on my thank you to Saeid, I will be eternally grateful to him.

You truly are all amazingly outstanding and thank you all.”


“I have been associated with Shades Dental Clinic since it conception. I was Dr Sundeep Rooprai final exams case in 2010. By this I mean he did work on my tooth for a period of 4 months leading to his final exam where he presented me to the Dental school examiners. During that period Dr Sunny worked tirelessly to fix two bridges on my upper tooth. He did a very through and good work on my deteriorating tooth and it is still as good as new today. I have visited Shades Clinic on a few occasions and he still continues to do a great job not just for me but for my wife and children too. In my experience, any patient or potential patient to Shades Clinic not only are they in good hands but receives treatment from the very best in the Dental industry.”

Davin Gill

“I took my son here for routine checkup and for advice on him having a brace fitted. Dr Rooprai was excellent. My son said he was the nicest dentist he had ever been to, and he really is. Everything was explained to us in great detail as well as all the options we could take. I also got a detialed follow up email from Dr Rooprai outlining the options again so I had it for reference. The clinic itself is very pleasant and we will be coming back again.”

Delphine Lechat

“After having many difficulties accessing a dentist over christmas Mile End dental clinic gave me an emergency appointment. I had an awful toothache for weeks and they were able to resolve the issue and relieve my pain so I could enjoy christmas and eat as much turkey as possible. Saeid was the dentist and he was excellent, he put me at ease by cracking a few jokes! The receptionist (Crystal) was also extremely helpful and kind, even ringing me the next day to check I was feeling better, what amazing service. I’ll definitely be back and would recommend 🙂
Thank you all so much, I had a great, pain free christmas!!”
