Shi Karim

GDC No. 82155

My name is Shi Karim and I am the Clinical Director at Church Road Dental and Cosmetics. I qualified at the University of Liverpool in 2003 and since qualifying I have attended many post-graduate courses worldwide to futher my knowledge in the dental field. I have sat and passed post graduate royal college of surgeon exams and am continually studying, attending courses and pushing myself to further my knowledge in the dental field.

My area of expertise is cosmetic dentistry and have helped numerous patients achieve their dream of a new smile. This is using the most up to date and technologically advanced treatments available. My preference is using minimally invasive treatments such as orthodontics and aesthetic composites but I also have a wealth of experience in placing veneers, crowns and bridges and implants and this can be seen by the cases in my smile gallery. I am also renowned for my treatment of nervous patients and pride myself on good communication to help to relieve any dental phobias that they may have. This is why I have received the recognition of being dental phobia certified.

I have completed:

  • 12 month certificate course with Chris Orr in advanced cosmetic dentistry
  • Perio Academy Periodontal Certificate Course
  • Inman aligner certification course
  • Invisalign certification course. I am platinum practitioner (In order to achieve platinum a certain number of cases have to be completed every year)
  • 12 month orthodontic core of knowledge course with wired orthodontics at the Smile Lounge
  • 12 month Centre for Advanced Dental Education certification course in Dental Implants
  • Wrinkle Softening and Restylane certification course at the Ascot Skin Clinic with David Dean
  • Raj Ahlowalia comprehensive care course
  • Dental Sinus lifting and augmentation course
  • Focus Bounce photgraphy course
  • Smile fast accrediation course
  • As well as these certification courses, I have attended numerous one or two day shorter courses and lectures around the UK and abroad

I am a full member of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentists and am also a full member of the Association of Dental Implantology

In my spare time I am fanatical about playing and following sports. I visit the gym at 6:00 before work every morning. My belief is that a healthy body also leads to a healthy mind. I am also a very keen Aston Villa supporter (somebody has to be!)

I am married to Gemma who is a primary school teacher at Thorn Grove School in Cheadle Hulme. We have 2 young children who take up most of our weekends.

I am immensely passionate about dentistry and making sure that our dental practice is constantly thriving for the highest possible standards of dentistry and patient comfort. This passion is reflected in my enthusiasm which will rub off on even the most phobic of patients to ensure a pleasant and pain free experience.
