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.
