The Singing Dentist Dr Milad Shadrooh didn’t know his videos would break the internet and make the international news. When he made a parody of Hotline Bling, he was just in the zone singing and not really thinking about what others might think of it. In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, the Singing Dentist shares stories about his childhood, his career, and his rise to fame.

- Dr Milad was born in Iran and moved in the UK when he was 5 years old. He recalls that it was already becoming a doctor that he answers whenever he gets asked about his dreams. He is now 39, a dentist, and has now a global brand.
- Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Chaka Khan are just a few of the musical influences of the Singing Dentist Dr Milad Shadrooh. He danced, sang, and rapped whenever there’s a chance when he was young. He was also a DJ for some time with quite a few gigs under his belt!
- His first viral video, a parody of the Hotline Bling by Drake, was initially just shared to his dentist friends, then to other dentists, and then to the whole wide world. The people loved it, so Dr Milad made more funny and entertaining videos.
- Is it safe to go to the dentist this pandemic? Since the government advises to lessen close contact, dentist appointments are no exception. Dentists are only allowed to give medical advice through telephone triaging setup by the NHS; physical treatment can only be performed in an emergency.
- Some private dentists might have a hard time surviving this coronavirus outbreak since there are no patients. As they are private businesses they can furlough staff but even the government help might not be enough for many.
- “Reduce social interaction. Stay indoors. Be sensible and follow the guidelines… These aren’t tough things that we’ve been asked to do.”
- “Right now, we’re in the survival phase. Stay afloat. Then, there’s the transition phase where we go back to normal—the new normal.”
- “It comes with years of performing!”
- “The best emergency is not to have one. Look after your teeth super well.”

ABOUT THE HOST
Jay Dhillon is a serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist based in the UK with a proven track record of growing businesses from start-up to success- and helping others do the same. From humble beginnings, Jay grew his first business from 0 to 500 employees and three locations, racking up sales of over £30 million – all with no investment other than a slight amount of savings. The business went on to acquire major clients such as Landrover, Jaguar, Toyota and New Look, to name a few.
Its immense success inevitably brought about outside interest, and at the age 33 Jay eventually sold the company to a London investment firm in Doyen Resources. Today, Jay owns several businesses in different sectors and helps entrepreneurs achieve success.
A calling to give back and help others led to Jay being chosen for the highly coveted role as a Prince’s Trust mentor, where his achievements were marked by a personal invitation to Buckingham Palace to meet Prince Charles.
After helping several young entrepreneurs to succeed as a mentor for the Trust, Jay’s burning desire to bring his wisdom and knowledge to a wider audience ultimately triggered the concept of The Business Mentor Podcast.
Jay feels that anyone can achieve success in business with the right advice and mentoring and is now sharing his knowledge with his growing audience via his podcast.
In the UK alone 95% of business fail within the first five years and Jay’s aim is to reduce that number.
Backed with the hard-earned knowledge and experience from his time in business, The Business Mentor Podcast will share Jay’s personal business lessons as well those of other successful entrepreneur guests who share their wisdom and secrets on the show.
