Specialists

Smilepod has a team of specialists and experts dedicated to providing you with the best dental care, whatever your needs.

What does being a specialist mean?

Registered specialists have carried out additional years of training to gain specialist qualifications in their field. On top of the five years spent on gaining their dental surgeon qualification, specialists spend up to three more years in post-graduate education to gain their specialist registration.

The entry to the register of specialists is regulated by the General Dental Council. Only dentists who meet their criteria are allowed to call themselves ‘specialist’.

Our specialists at Smilepod

Our specialist team is made up of a Specialist Periodontist (gum disease) Endodontists (for the treatment of root canals) and Orthodontist (for more complex orthodontic treatments) supported by an experienced Oral Surgeon to help with difficult extractions and to place dental implants.

I had my teeth cleaned and polished by Roshni back in November 2021. She was really gentle throughout the procedure and I barely had any discomfort while getting the cleaning done. Overall a great job and thank you so much!

I have been meaning to write this review for the longest time! I cannot fault Dr Raj and his team for their brilliant service. Dr Raj’s consultation was concise and clear and he was extremely professional. Raj is extremely experienced, his judgement and expertise shaped my teeth to perfection! I was quoted 10-12 months for my top and bottom braces and my teeth came out amazing. I also had my teeth cleaned with the hygienist afterwards. Smilepod Bank branch is clean, courteous and all the staff are knowledgable, I have referred a few people to them. Keep up the good work! Simone

Today was my first time visiting Smile Pod Soho, it was amazing. The Hygenist I saw was lovely, I was quite nervous and she talked me through every step of what she was doing which really put me at ease. Really great place and I got taken in right on time. I'm so happy with my teeth now and will definetely be back.

Got a cleaning (Classic Clean and Polish) here and was really pleased with the service. Roshni (the hygienist) was really gentle and took the time to explain what she was doing. Will definitely be back for my next clean.
