Dr Zahra Fernandes

Dentist

GDC: 265853

Hi ! I’m Zahra, one of Smilepod’s dentists. I’ve been working at Smilepod since 2017 but I’m a qualified dentist from Brazil since 2010. I’m a multitasking dentist who enjoys a variety of treatments!

Smilepod Holborn is great to work in – it’s such a central location and the atmosphere here is so calming and friendly. I love the control I have in my clients care. If I am seeing someone who needs more time I am able to extend their appointment so the duty of care is never compromised. I never have to rush so I always know I am always doing a good job.

I really like developing relationships with my patients. I like them to come back to see me and feel at ease. I believe that going to the dentist should be a nice experience rather than a traumatic one.

The key points for a good oral health are: cut down on sugar consumption, brush twice a day for two to three minutes, floss daily and go for regular check-ups as recommended by your dentist. Don’t postpone your check-ups because prevention is always easier – and cheaper – than treatment! And if you happen to choose me as your dentist, I’ll be here for you!

Ramona Pop

Studio Manager

I recommend anyone who wants to smile more to come and see us. We are different from the usual dentist, there are no lectures, we are approachable easy to book and we really care about our clients. It’s all about forming trusting relationships.

Hello! My name is Ramona and I am the manager of Holborn Smilepod and probably the first person you will see. You are very welcome here – it’s a friendly place. I’ve been at Smilepod for about 5 years and I have a great team who have all stayed a long while. It’s quite unusual in dentistry to have low staff turnover and I am really proud of my team. Customer service is so important to all of us.

I first came to London in 2011 to improve my English. I learned American style English and there are differences with the conversation. I then started working at Smilepod and took my dental nursing qualification. I always loved biology so dentistry was a really natural fit for me.

If you are nervous about visiting why not come and have a chat with me? I’ve had lots of appointments myself so I know first hand what it’s like. I had my orthodontics done here with a fixed brace for a few years and it was amazing. I love my new straight smile.

I recommend anyone who wants to smile more should come and see us. We are different from the usual dentist, there are no lectures, we are approachable easy to book and we really care about our clients. It’s all about forming trusting relationships

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.
