Trishala Lakhani

Dr Trishala Lakhani is a dentist whose first documentary "Turkey Teeth – Bargain Smiles or Big Mistake?", BBC, sparked national conversation and news around the #TurkeyTeeth TikTok trend and was nominated for Best Investigation of the Year at the Asian Media Awards and for Most Impactful Journalism at the BBC News Awards.

Trishala has worked with oral cancer and trauma patients as well as in general practice dental care. She has appeared on This Morning, BBC News, The Jeremy Vine Show and other media outlets providing expert dental advice and guidance to viewers on dental issues as well discussing the risk of cosmetic trends.   

In July 2022 Trishala won the public vote for Miss Universe Great Britain – the official qualifier to the Miss Universe pageant. Bowing out of the final stages of the competition to focus on her dental career and passion for exploring and investigating worldwide issues, including the beauty and health industry, it was an illuminating experience that not only enabled her to travel and visit many brilliant charities around the world but also gain first hand insight in to this unique microcosm.

With her knowledge of the medical world as well as the beauty industry combined with her inquisitive nature, Trishala’s experience, qualification and expertise gives her a unique perspective that is being utilised in several TV development projects.
