    Nice and clean and no lengthy waits at appointments, 10 mins max in 3 years.
    Spotless toilets but i didn't check accessibility, water and coffee is a given.

    I had 20 new implants done nearby at an 'implant only' surgery and they suggested SmilePod to do my other work, i needed urgent periodontal to save the rest.

    My implant surgeon was impressed at my gum recovery after the arduous and attentive work by Dr Anju who updated them with notes and scans.

    This small but efficient dentist is as warming and nice as dentistry can ever be, texts, email etc, a friendly reception, it works well.

    I even got away with a missed appointment £60 fine when Southern train late (really) and the next client was also late, np, Dr Anju re-juggled and slotted me in, no £60 fine, it all worked out anyway.

    Very professional, I had one tooth out and Ana did an amazing job, it took me just 12h to recover! I would highly recommend this place and Ana.

    Conveniently located close to Leadenhall Market, I highly rate their hygienist services. Flexible appointments and a very welcoming Reception.

    I’ve been treated by Inga on two occasions now for a High Gloss Diamond Polish and she is incredibly thorough. I tend to ‘gag’ easily and so she is extremely mindful of this and has great empathy. I throughly recommend.

    My brother has been a patient of Dr. Raj for several months for ortho treatment. I have found him to be very skilled and professional, with a calm and reassuring manner and gentle hand. The staff are all very friendly. Highly recommended.
