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.

Angi has been my dental hygienist since 2015. I used to very bad gums issues , but with gentle care and teaching Angi was able to support my dental health. She is the best hygienist, highly professional, quick and always on time

I've been coming to Smilepod for years for cosmetic bonding & maintenance. I can't recommend Dr Ana Bosco enough for her expertise, attention to detail and artistry in achieving a natural result. Thank you Dr Ana & the always friendly Smilepod team!

Katalin is brilliant; really friendly and professional and she did an amazing job of my teeth again. I’m definitely going back to her every time.

I would highly recommend Dr Ana Bosco and the Smilepod team. I undertook extensive treatment: braces; whitening; and finally the replacement of a crown on my front tooth - an area which I had long been self-conscious about. I am absolutely delighted with the results and it was well worth the time and effort. I have received lots of compliments about my smile and the crown matches so well, no one can tell that it isn't real. Thank you so much to Ana and the team!

I think I must have been living under a rock as at the age of 51 I have only just realised what a proper and professional dental check up was like. This is my 1st time at Smilepod Moorgate and Carine was amazing. Considered and thorough. Every stage of the check brilliantly explained and options discussed. Wish I'd found them sooner....

One of my favourite things about this clinic is Kate Guti, not only is she an excellent hygienist, but she is funny and gentle. I never have to worry because she’s a professional at her job, I always get amazing results with her. Overall Smilepod is a really great clinic and I’m glad to have discovered it a few years ago.
I found Smile Pod from google search for a tooth cleaning/hygienist appointment. I had a really positive experience with Dr Rodrigo (so much so I wanted to write a review). Will definitely come back and felt very comfortable and in safe hands. Happy with the results. The appointment was made on the same day which was an added benefit!

I have only good things to say. The staff at Smilepod Holborn are amazing - kind, accommodating, and professional. I looked long and hard before settling on a dentist, and I am glad I did - 5-star, friendly service all around.In particular, Dr. Ana Maria Mackinnon is fabulously skilled and down to earth (with a witty sense of humor). It is not just her level of skill (which is high); it is her approach (solving complex issues in the least invasive way possible). Thank you, Ana Maria!Likewise, Dr. Ana Bosco's work is superb - she perfected my smile. She is also lovely, takes her time with patients, and explains every step along the way. Thanks, Ana!Costs are fair and reasonable for dental services, especially in light of the level of skill.
