Dr Dee Patel BChD

Dr Dee Patel BChD

Principal Dentist

Hi my name is Dee, the owner of Shine Dental. I opened the practice in Manchester in April 2010, and my vision was to focus on providing the best level of care for my clients & offer the highest quality of dentistry available today.

Since graduating from Leeds University in 2005, I have completed a number of postgraduate courses at the prestigious ‘Tipton Training'; including year long courses in advanced restorative dentistry, aesthetic dentistry & implants. As well as this, I have completed courses in the dental breakthrough that is Six Month Smiles and most recently, I attended Facial Rejuvenation courses at Cosmetology for dermal and lip augmentation, anti-wrinkle Injections and also chemical peels.

Attending the courses I have has enabled me to gain extensive knowledge of new advances facial rejuvenation, dental technology & also earn a best practice award.

I enjoy treating nervous patients and before your treatment I will endeavor to make sure you are happy with all stages of your treatment and are more than confident to go ahead. Shine is different from other practices because we understand every patient is an individual which means giving every single patient the time and care needed to overcome their fears – this is why I believe we are the provider for nervous patients in the area. 

The time I spend away from Shine Dental (which isn’t a lot) is mostly spent with family, the gym (particularly squash) & dining out.

Associate Dentist

Hi my name is Helen, an associate at Shine Dental to work as the other dentist alongside Dee.
I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2006, then went on to become a member of the joint dental faculties of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2011.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and have a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics. I have completed two year-long postgraduate courses in restorative and cosmetic dentistry through the well respected Tipton Training and Dare along with continuing to attend several courses covering numerous aspects of dentistry. I am now an accredited Fastbraces clinician and enjoy transforming patients’ smiles at Shine with this innovative orthodontic method. I also completed my facial aesthetics training on Harley Street in London and really enjoy the results with anti-wrinkle injections, across a wide range of ages.
I  genuinely believe in honest, gentle, caring dentistry and treat all patients as if they were my own family. I works in a very friendly manner, will always try to put patients at ease and have gained a good reputation for working well with anxious patients.
I carried out my dental student elective project in Thailand with a study focusing on ‘Dental Phobia’, working with many severely anxious patients at a specialised anxiety practice in Bangkok – with similar methods to Shine – so I feel I fit in well in this Nervous Patient Specliast practice.
In my spare time I enjoy travelling, exercising, watching Everton (apologies!!) and enjoying life in Manchester city centre with friends and family. I am currently training to climb Mount Kilimanjaro this September – so please wish me luck and I hope I make it back to you all in one piece!!
I look forward to treating you soon.

Practice Manager

After taking the plunge and choosing to have a career change – I have thoroughly enjoyed the past couple of years learning and developing in my role. No two days are the same at Shine and as we continue to evolve, I love the different challenges we are part of everyday. Coming from a business background I am now enjoying learning more about the dental side of things which enables me to offer more advice and support to patients. Being hands on with some of the recent smile makeovers has been fun, watching how transforming someone’s smile can have such an impact on their confidence and everyday life is very rewarding.

Seeing what Shine has to offer with treatments, service and support, especially for nervous patients, helps to make it a unique and enjoyable place to work.

Outside of work I keep busy running around after my two little girls and spend most of my free time with family and friends.

Jayne Martin

Head Nurse & Nervous Patient Co-ordinator

Hi everyone! My name is Jayne and I joined the Shine Dental Team in July 2011. I’m really enjoying the lovely, family atmosphere Shine Dental has to offer. All the staff here have the same aim and this is to make sure your visit with us at the practice is as relaxing and pleasant as possible. With over 20 years experience in Dentistry, patient care is very important to me. I am Head Nurse at Shine Dental, which means I am always here to help a person in need and I am also in charge of overseeing Infection control and making sure the general cleanliness of the practice is kept to an exceptional standard.

When I am not working, I am a busy Mum with a house full of teenagers and a wonderful husband to look after. When I do get a minute to myself, I love to read fictional and non-fictional novels, and try to attend the gym as often as I can!

Reception Manager

Hello everyone! My name is Claire and I joined the Shine Dental team in February 2012 as Reception Manager. Being a busy mum with two young children and a husband to look after, the caring, family atmosphere here at Shine Dental is perfect for me. With my customer care background, my main aim here is to make sure you feel at ease from the time you walk in the door to leaving us, until the next time. From making your appointments to any queries or questions you may have, I am always just a phone call away. My drive and ambition has helped me to understand the dentistry aspect of the job and I am always looking for new ways to improve and learn.

Outside of work I am a typical girl who likes all the usual girlie stuff – visiting the hair dressers, shopping for shoes and clothes and listening to my music! I also love spending quality time with my family and friends.
