Dr Tasleem Khan
Dr. Tasleem’s interest in dentistry started in his gap year during a stint observing his local Orthodontist. Seeing how dental treatment could transform people’s smiles to boost their confidence and have a hugely positive impact on their lives convinced him to pursue dentistry. As a result, Tasleem loves giving patients a smile they love to display whether it is through a sparkling clean to performing aesthetic dentistry procedures.
Tasleem feels especially fulfilled when he can help patients, who have had previous negative experiences, feel comfortable in the dental chair. He treats every patient with the care and respect he would give to his family and friends whilst consistently attending courses and seminars to stay up to date with the current techniques.
Outside of work, Tasleem likes to keep active through kickboxing or playing footy with friends and winding down whilst watching the latest releases! He’s also an avid Brisbane Heat and Broncos fan and when he’s not at the game, you can find him glued to the tv cheering the team on. Feeling inspired during summer, Tasleem will occasionally escape up to the coast and try his hand at surfing (he doesn’t like to hear it, but he’s got a long way to go).

Outside of the practice, Nousha enjoys reading, cooking and spending time travelling with husband, Dr Emad Hanna and their 2 daughters. As she puts it, “Having 2 daughters in different academic stages makes planning for a family vacation that suits everyone’s different schedules and varying vacation times quite challenging. However, I like to think I mastered it!”
