I started learning about the anatomy of teeth at the age of 13, when I was studying to become a dental technician in Italy. After receiving my dental technician diploma at 18, I moved to UK to continue my studies. I graduated with a degree in Biomedicine in 2023 and I am now studying for a Master’s degree.

I have a huge passion in helping people to feel better, and I love being able to share this on a daily basis with our patients at our clinic in Moorgate.

Away from work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking and reading.

Dr Daiva Pitkauskiene


GDC: 169615

I am a Specialist Endodontist with over 10 years experience in the field. From a very young age I was interested in Medicine, inspired by a family member who was a Cardiologist. When I was 16 I chose to study Dentistry and never thought of doing anything else. After graduation I decided to study Endodontics because of the precise and defined nature of treatments, where I can apply advanced cutting edge technology. I find Endodontics particulary rewarding, when I am able to save teeth and take patients out of pain bringing happiness back to their lives.

GDC: 300924

Hi, I’m Devi, and I hail from Nepal, the home of the majestic Mt. Everest. My journey as a Dental Nurse began in 2019, and it’s a path I’ve never looked back from. In 2023, I had the pleasure of joining the Smilepod Moorgate team, which added an extra layer of enjoyment to my profession thanks to the wonderful people I work with.

If I were to pinpoint the most fulfilling aspect of my job, it’s undoubtedly the opportunity to care for our patients and ensure they feel comfortable from the moment they step into our practice until they leave. Establishing this rapport with our dentists is another source of satisfaction, as it enables us to work seamlessly as a team and deliver the best possible experience to our patients.

Outside of my professional life, I’m an avid hiker who loves exploring the great outdoors. I also have a passion for trying out various types of cuisine and, most importantly, I relish spending quality time with my church family.

Every day, I look forward to the chance to create a positive impact and bring smiles to the faces of those I encounter.

Simone Saoncellae

Dental Nurses

Hi, I’m Simone, originally hailing from Brazil. I have proudly served as a Dental Nurse at Smilepod since March 2022. My journey in the world of dental nursing commenced when I was just 17, and it’s a role that resonates with me naturally.

I would describe myself as a kind, helpful, and understanding individual. Caring for our patients and addressing their needs comes as second nature to me. I take immense pride in ensuring that our patients feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed within our clinic.

My job brings me immense joy, as it means I get to work alongside a diverse team of specialists and engage with wonderful people on a daily basis. What truly warms my heart in my current role is witnessing the profound impact that dentistry can have on someone’s life, especially when restorative treatments help self-conscious patients regain their confidence.

Beyond the practice, I savour socializing and cherish moments spent with family and friends. You can often find me at church, whipping up delightful dishes in the kitchen, unwinding, or embarking on adventures to discover exciting new places.

I look forward to each day with a smile, knowing that I have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of those I meet.

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.
