Dr. Talal Khalil, PhD Principal
Hi, let me take this opportunity to introduce myself and provide you with some information about my professional background. My name is Talal and I graduated in general dentistry from Safarik University in Slovakia in 2002. I started my career as a dentist working at the Louis Pasteur Faculty Hospital where I gained extensive experience in restorative and aesthetic dentistry.
My interest in oral surgery and associated academic work grew whilst working with eminent dentists and oral surgeons at the faculty teaching hospital. I completed my PhD degree in Precancerous Diseases in Oral Cavity in 2010.
I continue to keep my knowledge and skills up to date by working alongside highly experienced and skilful professionals and attending courses and workshops to familiarise myself with latest procedures and techniques in dentistry and aesthetic procedures.
I have huge experience in treating children and over the years, I have learnt techniques, communication skills and creating relaxed comfortable environment to put younger children and anxious patients at ease whilst undergoing dental assessments and procedures.
Over the last 10 years I have also gained considerable dental implant treatment experience and have an impressive 99% success rate having helped hundreds of dental implant patients.
I would encourage you to freely ask for advice on facial aesthetic procedures. Beside routine aesthetic procedures, I also offer root canal treatment, Hollywood smile, white filling, non surgical anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
It is my goal and vision to provide you with a confident smile.
Please feel free to discuss your concerns and available treatment options in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
Looking forward to see you soon.

Graduating from the University of Liverpool with degrees in both Dentistry and Biochemistry I have continued to progress and excel in the provision of Cosmetic Dentistry.
I have a special interest in the provision of minimally invasive dentistry to enhance smiles including the utilisation of short term brace systems such as Invisalign, composite bonding or composite veneers.

From subtle changes to full smile makeovers, I take great pride in providing bespoke treatment plans for every patient with the aim of improving smiles and restoring confidence.
Using the latest digital techniques, I seek to create long lasting results and harmonious smiles and aesthetics that are synergistic with the patient as a whole.
I have also completed extensive training in the provision of injectables such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments enabling myself to further enhance the patient journey through the provision of wide-ranging aesthetic treatments. With a strong focus on treatments which enhance the face as a whole.
I can proudly say I have been able to successfully provide truly life changing treatments to patients with the array of desired outcomes.

Ahmed Tahboub - Implant Surgeon
BDS University of Manchester 2013
After completing my dental degree at The University of Manchester, I worked at Manchester dental hospital and the Manchester Royal Infirmary. This allowed me to further my training in complex restorative dentistry and oral-maxillofacial surgery. During this time, I was involved in surgical and dental reconstructions for patients who suffered from trauma or oral cancer. This is where I discovered my passion for dental implants and restorative dentistry.
I then followed to complete a postgraduate certificate in restorative dentistry and a certificate in Dental Implants. I furthered this by completing the exam for the membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MJDF).
The attention to detail and perfectionism earns the confidence of our patients to deliver the best possible results. My ability to put you at ease and make your treatment comfortable makes me popular amongst nervous patients.
At Charisma, I offer simple and complex implant surgery from simple single implants to full mouth rehabilitation using dental implants. I also offer intravenous sedation for nervous patients.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my young children. I also play football and tennis.
If you have one or multiple teeth missing. Come and discuss your options with me!

Megan Robinson- Dental Nurse
Diploma in Dental Nursing Level 3 QCF City & Guilds 2019
I started as a trainee dental nurse in an NHS practice and very soon realised the Private sector is where my interests lie. I qualified as a Dental Nurse in September 2019 and aimed to broaden my knowledge immediately. I undertook additional tasks and learnt the art of assisting treatments such as composite bonding and all and four implant placements. I was fascinated by the technique and skill used and the attention to detail which was given.
One of my favourite parts of my job is communicating with the patients and listening to their stories. I love how patients change as their treatments progress and how their confidence grows. It’s very satisfying knowing I played such an important part in their dental journey.

Charisma Clinic Dental Team Review from Google My Business
"This dental practice is by far the best I have ever been to. The team are so warming and welcoming and make you feel right at home. The quality of service you receive from all of the staff - the owner (Talal), the manager (Khadija) the dentists (I had Rohan), nurses, and receptionist (Irene), is up there with some of the best service I have ever received.
The practice is also very modern and updated and you can see a lot of money and effort has gone into it. I've recommended this practice to all of my friends and family.
If you are looking for a new practice, then look no further!!!"
