Hey, I like dental and near-dental sounds too!
Your list above actually reminds me of Tairezazh's inventory:
p, b, t, d, b, g, f, v, T, D, s, z, S, Z, ts, dz, tS, dZ, r, l, m, n
Compared to Shali, Tairezazh lacks /w, j, h/, but adds /p, b, k, g, r, m,
So, just for you I made up this sentence:
E' stelza dins tshist suzdel shas, tse sha senar tsai toush - ta sul shar a
thainethes, lir ta srát shu shan ast its telvér.
("The little girl will love you forever, if you give her a kiss - I tell you
this truth because I know you will be happy together")
