Fouad Yousef Talic, the founder of “Talic Dental Clinics”, traces his heritage from Bosnia & Herzegovina. His father was one of the prominent community figures and tradesmen there.
With the increasing oppression against the Muslim community in Bosnia during World War Two, Fouad's family was forced to move out and seek security in different European countries. Because Fouad's father wanted his sons and daughters to be raised in an Islamic environment, he and the family decided to migrate to a Muslim country, which led them to move to Saudi Arabia after the second World War.
Some time after he immigrated, Fouad -the founder- received a scholarship from the german government to study dentistry in Bonn University , where he became an expert in the field.
In the beginning of 1952, he moved to Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to practice in the Royal Palace (Al-Murrabba) of the late king Abdul-Aziz Al-Saud the unifier and first king of Saudi Arabia.
It was a decisive move in Fouad's life, for he was able to afterwards, in 1956, start and operate his own private dental clinic, which was located on “Al-Thumairi Street” (Center of Riyadh), very close to the Riyadh governor’s palace.
Fouad’s passion for his work and his professionalism in conducting it were evident throughout all his years of practice, a mixture that was in use every day for more than 40 years, until the inevitable end came, and he passed away in 1996.
Having a vision for the future potential expansion of the city of Riyadh, believing that its prosperous expansion is heading north, Fouad decided to establish Talic Dental Center in 1989. At the time, they started with only five clinics.
His sons followed in his steps; they added three clinics in 1997, then, in 2007, four more clinics were established to create the modern “Talic Dental Clinics” which now has 12 clinics. This expansion was always for the benefit of the patients, to provide them with quality, trustworthy and reliable dental services.
