Hi, I’m Anju and I am Smilepod’s Specialist Periodontist. You can find me at any of our Bank, Canary Wharf or Holborn locations.
I was drawn to Periodontology, which is the study of the gums, because of the way it brings together our general health with conditions that affect the gums.
I absolutely love what I do and even after all these years I’m still amazed at the ability of the gums to repair and heal.
I have a particular interest in treating the more advanced cases of gum disease and failing implants. It’s hard to believe that gum disease that may have affected somebody’s life for many years can be treated effectively with just several short appointments.
To be healthy you don’t want inflammation in any part of your body, including your gums. So if you want to live a truly healthy lifestyle, then you must focus on the gums.
Hi, I’m Karen and I’ve worked at Smilepod since 2011. I started as a dentist in Covent Garden in 2012 and then moved to Canary Wharf. I am qualified in dentistry, and I have a post-graduate in orthodontics. I have also studied facial aesthetics which includes injectable treatments.
I moved from Brazil where I was a dentist and I speak English, Portuguese and some Spanish. I grew up in a family who worked in dentistry and from a young age, I was interested in what they did. I like using my hands and being precise.
Smilepod is a great place to visit and work because everyone is very friendly and passionate about what they do. it’s a very healthy atmosphere which creates a very caring culture.
If I could tell clients one thing it would avoid too much acidic food. If you are drinking wine try following it with a glass of water or some cheese or milk. If you have something acidic like wine or orange juice leave it 30 minutes before you clean your teeth. Brushing immediately can actually cause dental damage as acidic foods weaken the tooth enamel These acids weaken tooth enamel and brushing too soon can remove that enamel.
If clients are scared of the dentist I would tell them to try and relax. We are very nice and we will explain the whole journey before anything is done. there is no pressure to do anything but we will make sure you have the right advice to take the best care of your teeth and gums. We are very professional and conservative dentists here we won’t do any unnecessary treatment.
For me, part of my role is taking the time to get to know my clients and find out what they want from me as their dentist. I really enjoy helping my client improve their health and confidence. Taking the time to build rapport is well worth it as I get to talk to interesting people all day long. I am passionate about building relationships with my clients and many of them return to me again and again.
In addition to dentistry, I love rejuvenation as it is a wonderful way of making someone feel good about themselves. It’s so nice to see patients leaving feeling positive about the results. we are professionals trained to deal with unexpected scenarios and ensuring we are offering safe treatment. We make sure the results are subtle and not artificial. As a dentist, we are very precise and skilled. The idea with rejuvenation is to restore what time has taken away not to create an unnatural result.
Hello and thanks for reading about me 🙂 I am a dentist and a mom of two gorgeous little girls thus I proudly juggle my time in between my family and my beloved job.
I have always dreamed of being a health professional as a child. I thought it was beautiful to be able to take care of people somehow. I love it when I can help my patients to feel better about themselves, when I get them out of pain, or when I can successfully restore their oral health (which reflects in their general health after all). I offer an open and reassuring approach to my clients and offer friendly advice with no judgement.
What is great about our studio is that we all think alike: our priority is our Clients’ welfare and satisfaction. Always!
Hello. My name is Margi and I am one of the dentist at Smilepod and I have a special interest in orthodontics.
Since childhood I was a very sincere, studious and hardworking student…..and I always dreamed of becoming a dentist. Thanks to my parent’s guidance and my perseverance my dream turned into a reality when I got admission into a top dental school.
During my graduate days it fascinated me to see how people with beautiful smile were more confident and led a more satisfactory social life. This made me more and more interested in Aesthetic dentistry and Orthodontics. I then went on to do my masters in Facial Orthodontics and Orthopaedics.
Today, I enjoy my work thoroughly and I’m passionate about assisting my clients in achieving a confident smile through cosmetic dentistry and Orthodontics. Also, I am committed to my clients in offering stress-free and friendly dental experience and to ensure they leave my chair happy and smiling.
My name is Ineta and I, together with my amazing team of dentists, and hygienists work at Smilepod Jubilee Place Studio in Canary Wharf.
I’ve worked at Smilepod since 2015 and as manager I am here to ensure that your experience with us is five star and that you are well taken care of from the minute you walk in through our door.
My aim to provide our clients with the best customer service whether this is administration related or clinical. I will always do my best to help you. I know people can be worried about visiting the dentist but looking after your teeth is so important.
My main role is to ensure you have a smooth journey from clinical diagnosis to booking appointments, personal payment plans and to make sure you leave with a smile on your face.
Our clients tend to be very professional, so it is important as fellow professionals we meet the highest standards. As well as caring for your oral health we can also help our client’s confidence – we are delighted to offer Teeth Whitening, Invisalign, Orthodontics and Facial Rejuvenation treatments including anti-wrinkle injectables and fillers.
We are located in Canary Wharf’s famous shopping centre, so our clients can come for their treatments and to shop after.
Our location is very convenient for busy workers who can visit during lunch breaks, before or after work.
As a first time customer , I have to say that I was so happy with the service I received today. Really put at ease by the friendly staff and dentist. Even though it was a quick procedure, it was very thorough. Will definitely be back! Thanks Smilepod.
Just perfect. Very professional and excellent reception team. The dentist Dr Italo is a master magician! I’ve been many times and all Smilepod dentists and support team are exceptional.
I was pleased to be able to choose the time for my appointment quickly and when it was convenient to fit to my work schedule. Ana was very knowledgeble and professional, and explained everything clearly to me. After my appointment I felt it was well worth the payment.
Friendly and efficient service, good online booking system. Classic clean thorough and quick. Positive and pleasant practitioner - no nagging or negging to push additional treatments a definite plus.
I would definitely recommend Smilepod Holborn. I was received in a very friendly manner, the treatment was swift but thorough. The result was also beyond my expectations. All in all, an excellent experience.
Excellent service, very efficient and effective. The dentist was friendly and approachable, answered my questions and made recommendations for my daily dental hygiene. Really like it and would definitely recommend it.
Dr Ana Polidoro is the best! I have visited smilepod holborn twice and both times for an extraction and both times she made me feel very comfortable and she is extremely friendly, quick and professional, making going to the dentist joyful rather than stressful!!
