I can't thank Dr Shahdad and his team enough for bringing my smile back! A brilliant outcome for me in a complex case where my own dentist/implantologist had said he was unable to help. I would highly recommend his expertise to others like me.
Having just completed an extensive course of treatment involving five implants, I have no hesitation in recommending SDS to anyone looking for state-of-the-art expertise combined with a sympathetic and friendly approach to patients. I have never felt more relaxed when going for dental treatment, and never in any doubt that I was in the best possible place for it. From the first consultation onwards, I was kept totally involved in each stage of the treatment, and where options were available, I could make fully informed choices. For me, this is the key to their success.
Best wishes to you all.
I wish to record a testimonial to the professionalism and care I received from Dr Shahdad and his team. Having waited 2 years to find Dr Shahdad, and being told by other dentists that because of substantial bone loss I may not be suitable for implants, I am very happy to hear that it was after all possible.
Dr Shahdad and his dedicated team exercised total calm and reassuring care in a very short time frame.
I had the implants in December and walked away with new teeth in March!
Thank you Dr Shahdad for your expert attention and care!!
Wonderful experience. Shakeel Shahdad is a star! His team were very professional, approachable and had a tremendous calming influence.
My fear of dentists has gone………well almost!
I would highly recommend Shakeel. A super Dentist who has excellent communication skills.
My orthodontic treatment took 13 months and, while it wasn’t always easy, it was never painful. Dr Johal and his team really looked after me. It’s the best 40th birthday present to myself! I still can’t believe how great my smile looks
To Dr Johal, Zoe and the rest of the team.
Just wanted to thank you again for helping me through one of the biggest changes in my life. I will never forget your kindness and professionalism. Wishing you all the best in the future and a happy holidays.
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.
The thought of bone grafting and three implants seemed little daunting at first but your clear and concise explanations as to the sequence of events throughout the year were extremely accurate and not as ghastly as I thought it may be.
Just the one major operation lasting a little over three hours was the only time I experienced any discomfort and it was exactly as you explained so there were no shocks.
The subsequent visits to finalise the ultimate bridge showed me just how much it meant to you and your team in making sure the final bridge is as natural looking as it could be. The comments I have had from friends and family have all been enormously complimentary of your work.
Your support staff, all express the same level of customer care and professionalism as you do, making for a trip to the dentist almost a pleasure!
In other words, I could not be happier. Great job and thanks again.
If you have any future patients that would like a chat with a previous customer with first hand experience, I would be very happy to talk to anyone you think may require some words of comfort.
I first come here back in May 2008. From the first moment till today February 2009 I was always very welcome to the surgery. The professionalism of Dr Shahdad and his team was very impressive to me. I really enjoyed coming here for my treatment.
I had three implants and bridges.
I would recommend all my friends to come here.
Thank you for working after me, the way you all have done.
I was very pleased with my treatment of the implants and was kept informed at all times what Shakeel was doing.
It is now six months since the treatment and I am delighted with the result. The implants have settled like normal teeth and I have learned to forget that they are implants.
I would not hesitate to recommend Shakeel and his team to others who contemplate to have implants.
I was apprehensive about having implants but felt it was the only way forward having lost 3 heavily filled molars and broken 2 further teeth. I did not want either a bridge or false teeth.
I received excellent treatment in a very friendly atmosphere from Dr Shahdad and his team and am very pleased with the result, a combination of implants and on-lays, both from a functional and cosmetic point of view.
I still have ongoing check-ups with the hygienist and Dr Shahdad to make sure no problems have arisen.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Shahdad and his team to anyone thinking about similar treatment.
I'm writing to compliment and thank you for the exemplary dental treatment I received from Dr Shahdad this summer.
From the moment I arrived, he calmly and confidently allayed any concerns I had by delivering a first-rate dental care service, which surpassed all my expectations.
My treatment required two sessions of complicated gum and bone grafting surgery that needed long periods of intense concentration. From the preliminary examination and preparation period to the treatment and aftercare service Dr Shahdad demonstrated a highly skilled meticulousness in a calm and methodical manner.
His support staff also matched this professionalism and customer care.
I would also like to add that the whole internal ambience of the historic building made the experience of ‘going to the dentist’ a pleasurable one.
Dr Shahdad is a dental practitioner of the highest order and I will be recommending him to all my friends and colleagues.
Thank you, once again.

I was so pleased with all my care at Shakeel’s expert hands. I had complete confidence in him at all times and have been extremely pleased with the result. Not only do my new teeth look so much better, the way he sorted out my gums has contributed so much to the much improved appearance.
Thank you all at SDS
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.
In the past I have had the most terrible treatment from several dentists,
the last experience left me completely traumatised.
I consider myself very fortunate to have discovered Dr Shakeel Shahdad. He
has restored my faith in dentistry, he is so knowledgable and an expert in
I have found him to be kind, understanding, patient, and extremely skilful.
The treatment I have received over the last nine years has been outstanding.
His surgery is run with the utmost efficiency and professionalism.
Zoe and Stacy, part of his excellent team are always very professional and
friendly, they help to make the whole experience of visiting the surgery for
treatment less stressful.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr Shakeel Shahdad or any of
