The 56-year-old oral surgeon said he has crooned his way to calming patients ever since he can remember, as he sings along to tunes on the radio while carrying out his handiwork.

He said: “People get very nervous in the chair, so I find singing helps soothes their nerves. Mostly it just makes them laugh and breaks the ice.

“In some cases I have to use sedation drugs or gas and air, but for those who don’t need it I will sing to them.

“In most cases it distracts them and gives them something else to think about, it distracts them from what they are nervous about.”

Married father-of-two Dr Bamgboye sings along to ‘golden oldies’ on Magic FM as the patients sit in the chair at the Kings Capitol Clinic in Dodworth, Barnsley.

He said: “I love singing to anything from the 1970s and 80s. The last song I sung that was on the radio was ‘Amazing Grace’ by Elvis.

“The best thing about this job is relieving pain and seeing people smile and look better. It’s very worthwhile.”
