"I'm over the moon with the results. With the extent of damage that I'd done, to leave with an even better smile than I had before my accident is simply incredible. I couldn't recommend them more highly"

"Dr Shandad is an artist, if you want perfection this is the only place to go! Not only was the result of my implant incredible, the expertise, care and service I received is matched by none"

"The word "implant" for me was "operation" and it really scared me. The denture I had made me so uncomfortable when I ate so I decided to go ahead with the implant. My dentist recommended Dr.Shakeel Shandad to me. However after meeting Dr.Shakeel who explained what he was going to do and the team who were very supportive, I felt so comfortable and left the repair to be in the hand of Dr. Shakeel without doubt.

I was lying on the chair of his surgery for almost 4 hours, with Dr. Shakeel on one side and my own dentist was on another side with me and I did not feel at all nervous or uncomfortable. I went back to the surgery for a few visits and everyone was so friendly right from the reception who open the door, then Zoe came to greet me and Dr Shakeel who was waiting at the surgery with the team. I am glad I decided to have the implant done and more importantly I am glad I have met Dr.Shakeel. 


Thank you all very much."

"I have had the pleasure –if dental work can ever be called “pleasure” –of dealing with Professor Ama Johal and Dr Shakeel Shahdad as well as the dental nurses, the hygienist, and the wonderful practice manager Zoe at Specialist Dental Services.

My treatment over the past two years has been extensive but ultimately very successful and has given me a new lease on life. I am no longer embarrassed to smile broadly and I like to think that this has led to a considerable improvement in my interaction with friends and family and new acquaintances. It is amazing the effect that giving them a broad smile has on other people, and I have never been able to do that before.

I am of a generation for whom orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry was quite uncommon and so I grew up with uneven top and bottom teeth which got worse and worse with age. I went to another dentist who recommended veneers to improve the top front teeth, but despite countless returns to visit him the veneers continued to pop off.

In desperation I turned to Dr Johal who immediately noted that the problem was that the lower teeth were so uneven they pressed on the new veneers and pried them off. A year of orthodontic treatment on the bottom teeth followed but in the meantime Dr Shahdad put in place temporary veneers which miraculously stayed put for the whole year.

The final touch was the removal of the braces and the fixing of the permanent veneers exactly a year ago! No problems now with the veneers or the orthodontics. What a difference it has made to my life! Thank you."

"To review a dental practice with 'Loved It' seems sad but hand on heart Specialist Dental Services saved me. I've always feared dentists which is probably why my front tooth fell out. I visited two emergency practices before finding SDS on google. I read the reviews and decided to make an appointment. My first appointment with Dr Shakeel Shandad immediately put me at ease. He talked through my fears before examining me and had great patience. My treatment plan was to undergo a dental implant; before that could start I had to have several trips with the hygienist. After a year of appointments I can now smile with confidence; the finishing product is a lovely natural looking front tooth. The team are friendly and accommodating and I really believe that they've helped me get over my fear of dentists. If you need treatment, I highly recommend this place."

"After a very long time of discomfort, infections, pain and no resolve offered by my own dentist, I was recommended to make an appointment with Shakeel Shandad and I was quite simply offered a life line for which I will be eternally grateful. Shakeel and his team, Stacy & Zoe guided me through every moment. My treatment has been life changing for me and given me back my confidence & smile. I cannot recommend Dr Shandad more highly."

"Thank you very much for giving me back the smile with confidence.  More importantly I can enjoy eating now.  I love my teeth"

"I was involved in a bicycle accident in 2012 and lost two teeth and badly traumatised two more. I was treated at The Royal London hospital until 2014 where I was fitted with two implants. Unfortunately, my two traumatised teeth then failed and I decided that the only answer for a swift conclusion to a long ordeal was to go to SDS, where I knew Shakeel could treat me directly. He worked quickly and effectively to deal with the two troublesome teeth and fitted an implant supported bridge for me. I don't regret this decision- between Shakeel and Alaa (from the lab) - I have an even better smile than I had prior to my accident. They have given me back my confidence and I would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themself in a similar position. I cannot thank the team enough, I can smile again for the first time in three years!"

"I decided to have soft tissue grafting from the palate and I can honestly say that the results are better than anything I could have expected! I'm absolutely thrilled with the end result and the soft tissue grafts on my lower gums have given me more root coverage than I ever thought possible." 


"If you need a dental specialist who is exceptionally talented and who is very kind and calm, then I would highly recommend Dr Shakeel." 
 

"I am so thankful to Dr Shakeel and his team and I hope this review helps anyone reading it to feel a bit more confident about contacting SDS for a consultation."

"I remain very grateful to Dr Shakeel Shahdad for advising and administering to me a professional and caring service of the highest order.  Dr Shahdad was aware of my nervous phobia with dentistry, (which did also contribute to the gradual deterioration of my dental health). After consultation and careful analysis he supplied me with a thorough prognosis and a treatment plan which explained my best options and any unlikely latent risks. It all made great sense to me and thus I did confidently put my trust into Dr Shahdad’s hands, now, I am so very happy that I did.

Very many thanks to Dr Shahdad and his team at Specialist Dental Services."

"When I arrived at SDS I was upset and nervous about the amount of treatment I had ahead of me, but was immediately made to feel at ease, everything was explained to me clearly and I was given all the options so that I could make my own decision about my treatment plan - since then there have been no horrible surprises or hidden costs, this is a very open and honest practice. Mine has not been a straight forward process due to personal issues and the fact that I got pregnant half way through my treatment, from a personal point of view the team at SDS have simply been outstanding through what has been a very difficult time for me, I cannot thank them enough for their support. From a patient point of view I could not be happier with the outcome of my treatment, Shakeel is a miracle worker what he has achieved is amazing, I finally have the smile I always wanted - thank you SDS, one happy customer!"
