Biography

After qualifying from the State University of Sao Paulo in 2010 (one of the top Dental Schools according to the World rankings), Zahra started intensive training at the largest Hospital of Latin America, in addition to working for private practices. Along with gaining experience in surgical procedures – such as complicated wisdom teeth removal – she also obtained her Brazilian specialist degree in Special Care Dentistry focusing on patients with special needs. 

Zahra is a multi-talented dentist, who enjoys doing a variety of dental treatments. She is passionate about Oral Surgery, Cosmetic Dentistry (such as whitening, white fillings and porcelain veneers/crowns) and Endodontics (root canal treatments). This is why after finishing her training at the hospital, she undertook more training focusing on new technologies used to treat root canals. 

Other interests

Zahra absolutely adores going to the beach! Travelling around Europe is her recent passion – she doesn’t enjoy long flights unless it’s absolutely necessary, such as visiting her family in Brazil. She also loves cooking, watching Netflix and sticking to a healthy lifestyle. Curiously, although she was born and brought up in Sao Paulo, she is half Iranian, and half Portuguese. Definitely a multicultural person!

I cannot speak highly enough of Smilepod Soho. I went for cleaning and polish by Michaela. From the moment I walked in, the receptionist was extremely warm and friendly and welcoming. Michaela cleaned my teeth, and whilst they are not in the best shape, she was non judgemental, and probably one of the loveliest dentists I’ve ever had in my life. I’m so glad I took the first step to get my teeth fixed. I have already booked my follow-up appointment for next time. What an amazing place.

Had a fantastic experience with both a hygienist and a dental check up at Smilepod Soho! The best dentist in London by far.

I had a very good experience at Smilepod Canada Place, getting a check-up and classic cleaning done.Dr Adelina Haas and Prabina (Dental Nurse) put me at ease, and I felt quite relaxed during the appointment which is a feeling that most people would not associate with dental appointments. They were very nice, asking me lots of questions, and explained what they were going to do.I am due back for a filling in a few weeks time. I hope it goes as well

I had my teeth cleaning and diamond polish done by Dentist Roshni Goel. She is really sweet and gentle throughout the procedure. I barely had any discomfort while getting the cleaning done. She takes you through the whole process in detail and is very sweet to answer all your queries with patience. The only con is that the prices at Smilepod are quite high but I do recommend Hygienist Roshni Goel. Overall a great job done!

I got a cleaning there last week and it was phenomenal with Erika!After the cleaning I had some issues involving my wire and had to come back, they fixed everything up for free and gave me a little brush to help and did another mini cleaning of my bottom teeth. I was extremely happy about this kind of treatment, super happy to call them my dentists.

Really positive experience with hygienist Roshni Goel. My teeth are quite sensitive and she took utmost care during the cleaning; I didn’t feel much pain even with such sensitive teeth.

I am not fan of having hygiene appointments as my teeth are rather sensitive. Roshni Goel, the hygienist at Canada Place, took care of me beautifully by accommodating manual and mechanical clean interchangeably to minimize my distress. And this was highly important given my pregnancy. Going to send my husband to her!

Went for the Diamond polish. Inga, who is the hygienist specialist, was very professional and friendly. It was my first dentist appointment after 7 years and Inga did an exceptional job. I had all the hard plaque/tartar removed, including the stains I had from smoking! My teeth looks all fresh and clean. Inga also provided some great advice as well as providing me with couple of tiny brushes for me to clean areas that are in-between my teeth :) Highly recommend Inga for hygiene clean and polish.

I'm usually a little anxious about dental visits but soon relax when I arrive at Smilepod Soho. Diana at Reception is very welcoming and by the time we have exchanged a few pleasantries Katalin, my Hygienist, is there to greet me.Kati has been my hygienist for several years now and I feel comfortable in her very capable hands. She is efficient and gentle using a combination of ultrasonic and manual where required. I leave feeling reassured that I have had a thorough scale and polish and have been seen by a conscientious and professional practitioner.Katie also gives me important advice regarding my dental hygiene i.e. where I need to do a bit more work/cleaning etc - which I really appreciate.

Bit expensive but worth it! My appointment (Diamond Polish) with Roshni was a really positive experience, she talks you through every step of the process making sure you’re comfortable and telling you what she’s doing and why. All in all, it was brilliant and my teeth feel cleaner and whitern
