Dr. Desislava Hubenova

Dr. Hubenova completed her extensive dental training at the Medical University of Plodiv in Bulgaria; internationally recognised for its leading dental, medical and pharmaceutical faculties.

Dr. Hubenova, or ‘Desi’ as she is affectionately called by her patients, has become known at the practice for her informative and thorough approach with the long-term health of her patients as priority.

With a strong interest in Orthodontics; Restorative Dentistry and correct alignment of teeth for a well-balanced bite, Dr. Hubenova helps patients ensure that their dental fitness is optimal so any restorative or aesthetic work performed will last.

“We want to have a beautiful and healthy smile, so form must always follow function – in other words, we must first ensure that the way teeth come together, to evenly distribute pressure and the demands of chewing, is even.

Once your bite function and gum health are in good shape, then we can focus on restoring an attractive appearance. Just like a fabulous house must be built on a strong foundation, gorgeous teeth need healthy gum and bone to last.”


I would 100% recommend everything about the Smile Store, from the reception to the nurses, to the dentists and surgeons. I would never use anyone else. Thanks Smile Store (Awesome)

Very good, you get a plan before you start treatment and you know how much it will cost and time. Appointments are always on time and you get a reminder. Staff very helpful and friendly. Very positive experience all around. Convenient, don’t need to go into town, easy to get to. No parking expenses.

Very professional at all times. This was a difficult procedure as it involved multiple extractions and implants afterwards.  I would recommend Smile Store to anyone as they deal with any problems that may arise as promptly as possible and in my case allowed me the medication necessary to deal with pain relief which was a big issue for me. 🙂

Ken O’Neill Reviews Smile Store

Best dental experience I have ever had in a long time. From the start with the initial assessment a detailed plan was made and I had a lot of work to be done from years of neglect. But though it all was very painless experience can’t fault the staff making sure you were comfortable during the whole treatment. Would definitely recommend them.

I am very happy with my treatment results. The staff and dentists were very helpful and friendly and always there when I had a problem or enquiry.

Alisha Fielding Reviews Smile Store
February 18, 2019

The treatment I received at Smile Store was excellent. My experience from start to finish was so positive. I was taken through the dental plan & each individual step was explained to me at each juncture. Smile Store was recommended to me by a friend whose husband had extensive treatment. Initially when I researched the matter myself I thought that it would be far more expensive. My dentist had recommended that I get an implant, however he was recommending a place that costs approximately €3,000 for one implant&crown. In the course of my treatment I got fillings on my front teeth. I cannot tell by locating at them which teeth actually have fillings, due to the quality of the dental work. I have completed my treatment and have had five front teeth filled as well as an implant & a crown for significantly less than the cost of the implant & crown that my dentist was recommending. This is an investment for my future.

Excellent cleaning procedure – very thorough. As a result, cavity was detected! My experiences of root canal procedure and crown procedure were pain free! Saved money too in that Smile Store charge less for crowns and root canals compared to other dentists. I enjoyed coming to my friendly, sincere dentist.

All the information required was given before the treatment and the treatment was performed as quickly as possible for no future wait during treatment. I followed all the instructions during the treatment and never felt any discomfort during the treatment: I recommend Smile Store service for such treatment.

Olivier from Carrigaline Reviews Smile Store
November 6, 2018

The staff are courteous and polite. The treatment involving anaesthetic always seemed appropriate to the task at hand and I felt I was in good hands, at no time in pain, in spite of my own not uncommon anxiety around going to the dentist. I have beed educated through the course of my treatment with regard to the ongoing care of my teeth and dental hygiene.

The reason I came here in the first place was economical but I stayed for the firm but compassionate professionalism.

The Smile Store carried out a repair to an old filling I’d had. They also recommended a comprehensive plan to repair & replace other damaged teeth. I’ve now completed this plan and am delighted with the quality of service I have received from reception, hygienest and dentists. I would highly recommend them on both quality of service and price.
