Dr Bob Khanna

Clinical director of the Dr Bob Khanna Training Institute and DrBK Clinic

Since 1992, Professor Khanna 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, temporomandibular (TMD) rehabilitation and treatment for head and neck pain. He has been at the forefront of the development of concepts and techniques using BTX, dermal filler, PRP and thread lifting for over 27 years. Professor 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. Over 35% of his patients are clinicians - he is globally known as the 'doctor's choice' for their own treatments.

Since 1996 he has advised and acted as international KOL for Merz, Teoxane, Q-med, Allergan, Filorga, Galderma, Croma, Pluryal, Erchonia and the Baldan Group, helping to develop his full face approach.
