Dr Bob Khanna

Dentist & International Teacher of Facial Aesthetics and Clinical Director of The Dr Bob Khanna training Institute and Dr BK Clinic in Reading & London (Harley Street)

Dr Khanna graduated from the University of Cardiff in 1993 and since then, he has built a formidable career carrying out advanced cosmetic and oral surgical procedures in combination with aesthetic medicine. This involves the latest advances in Oral Implantology in combination with soft and hard tissue grafting; TMD rehabilitation and treatment for head and neck pain.  He has been at the forefront for the development of concepts and techniques using BTX, dermal filler, PRP, skin rejuvenation and thread lifting since 1996.

Dr Khanna is an invited speaker and chairman to most senior aesthetic medical and dental conferences in the world. Globally he is considered by his peers to be one of the leading experts in Facial Aesthetics and clinicians travel from around the world to the DrBK Training Institute and the DrBK clinic to learn his concepts and techniques and/or receive treatment themselves from him. A large percentage of his patients are Clinicians themselves and therefore he is widely considered as the Doctors’ choice for Facial Aesthetics.

Since 1996 he has advised and acted as International KOL for Merz, Teoxane, Q-med, Allergan, Filorga, Galderma, Pluryal and more, helping to develop his full-face approach.
