Dr Anju Kumar

Periodontist

GDC: 83479

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.

Dr Raj Jabbal

Specialist Orthodontist

GDC: 170889

“My interests focus on adult orthodontics and attaining the balance between speed, efficiency and stability of treatment and aesthetics during the procedure. “

My name is Raj, I’m your friendly neighbourhood orthodontist! I studied orthodontics at Kings College London and have a Membership in Orthodontics with the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. My interests focus on adult orthodontics and attaining the balance between speed, efficiency and stability of treatment and aesthetics during the procedure.

I love orthodontics and it is more than a career! It harnesses both the functional aspects of the oral environment and the beauty of the human condition. Patients contemplating orthodontics should take the step to have a consultation. The decision can only be made once all the information has been considered as contemporary options have revolutionised the aesthetics and efficiency of modern orthodontics.

Dr Ana Polidoro

Dentist

GDC: 156003

“I see lots of nervous clients and whenever you ask why they are scared. 90% of the time it’s due to a bad experience as a child. It’s a matter of taking the chance on us and we can give you a positive experience. Dentistry has changed so much over the years so it won’t be as bad as you think.”

Hi, I’m Ana one of Smilepod’s dentists. I’ve worked for Smilepod for five years although I did some cover dentistry for a different location ten years ago. I began my career working in Brazil then moved to London about 13 years ago.

I’ve been fascinated by dentistry since I was 10 years old and had an accident and broke my teeth. At the time I had to go back and forth to the dentists’ lots of time and they thought it was unlikely I would be able to keep my teeth. It sounds scary, but I was really interested in how things worked in dentistry and teeth. Due to the skill of the dentist, I was able to keep my teeth so my dentist inspired me to go down this path.

I am especially interested in educating clients on prevention. Prevention is so much better than cure. Most dental problems don’t cause symptoms. As a dentist, I can see these problems and stop them in their tracks. That’s why attending your check-ups is so important to the health of your teeth.

I have been coming here for years and have always had excellent service and attention. I highly recommend them.
Response from the owner: Thank you for your feedback!
I had a great experience with Dr. Hygino, who restored my broken tooth. The procedure was quick, painless, and the result was outstanding! I'm very happy with my new tooth.
Dr Debora did an awesome job with my braces. She's really good at what she does and she's also really nice. My smile looks amazing now, thanks to her. If you need braces, I totally recommend Dr Debora
I had an accident and chipped two of my front teeth. Dr. Gino saw me on the same day and repaired my teeth for me. He did such an amazing job. I can't even tell the difference is so perfect. All my friends were impressed. Thank you so much Dr. Gino and Smilepod for being able to treat me on the same day of my accident and bringing it back my smile. Top class service. I couldn't recommend you guys more!!
SO MUCH better than my usual NHS service. I chose smile pod because they were close to my office and had lots of appointments available outside my work hours. I am so glad I tried them as my teeth look amazing! Jasmin was so relaxing and friendly. Multiple tools used to clean my teeth with so much attention to the detail, my teeth look and feel amazing and I can’t stop smiling for real! ‘Classic clean’ - Natasja (I’ll be back real soon) xx

Easy to book.Had an appointment with Magatha and she was very gentle and careful, pain free cleaning done very well.
Roshni is very friendly and made the whole experience very positive!
The entire team at Smilepod Moorgate is very professional and friendly. Seven years ago, I turned to Carine Borges to improve the aesthetics of my teeth, which she did excellently with a whitening treatment and a series of high-quality and durable composite bondings. Recently, I returned for a check-up, and only one of the bondings had to be redone, while the others are still doing great. I highly recommend Carine for both her professionalism and her human qualities.
Inga not only delivers first class teeth cleaning she has a warm, reassuring manner which really puts you at ease. Very skilled but gentle in her use of the instruments. I've tried 3 other Smilepods in London and Inga is the best. Top job.

Dr Anju was extremely insightful and considerate throughout the treatment. I felt very well informed and looked after and can highly recommend her as a top periodontist. The whole team and experience has been excellent.
I had a great hygienist experience with Roshni Goel. She was very gentle, professional and attentive. She was constantly checking if I was good through the session and she even had kindly gave me a call to check if I was good after the session. Highly recommended.
