Dr Wong’s visit to Frederick Hugh House, Chelsea Pre-Prep and Lloyd Williamson school

Committed to promote oral health and well being in the local community, Dr Moira Wong recently visited 3 schools in Chelsea and Kensington; Frederick Hugh House, Chelsea Pre-Prep and Lloyd Williamson school, following the success of previous talks at Hawkesdown House School and Ladbroke Square Nursery.

As their website says, “Frederick Hugh House is an independent, special school in the Royal Borough of Chelsea, imbued with a combination of inspiration, aspiration and innovation.” It was such a pleasure to talk to students on how to keep their teeth clean and healthy.

“Chelsea Pre-Prep & Nursery provides children from ages 2 to 5+ years with opportunities to learn across all areas of development from a huge variety of activities throughout the day. These include classes from the Chelsea Ballet School, Blueberry Music School, All Sorts Drama School and Little Kickers Sports lessons.” When Moira arrived the nursery, she was surprised to see how lovely and beautiful the whole environment is, with 58 children spreading across 6 large classrooms including a separate area for extra curricular lessons and their own sensory area. Here, Moira used model dinosaurs to demonstrate how we should clean our teeth and what food is not healthy for our teeth!

“Lloyd Williamson School is an independent, coeducational Nursery, Pre-Preparatory and Preparatory school in the heart of central London, educating children from 6 months to 14 years. Lloyd Williamson School offers a breadth and depth of education, which goes beyond academic success in examinations and into every sphere of life.” Pupils made Moira feel extremely welcome, were so polite and had lots of questions about keeping their teeth healthy. Dr Wong also ran a fun and engaging quiz on what foods are good and bad for our teeth.

The three visits received lots of positive feedback from staff and students at the schools, confirming Dr Wong’s commitment to help promote oral health, especially at early ages.

Dr. Moira Wong – Orthodontist

An exceptionally skilled orthodontist who simply loves to improve the smiles of adults and children.

Dr Moira Wong (GDC no: 67960, UK) developed an ambition to specialise in the field of orthodontics during her time as a dentistry student at the London Hospital Medical College. After graduating in 1994, she gained experience in all fields of dentistry prior to specialisation. This included working as part of the Pennstar trauma team at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr Wong’s career pathway began with a spell as a house officer in prosthetic dentistry at the Royal London Hospital, followed by senior house officer positions at the Bristol Dental Hospital. During this period she gained her fellowship in dental surgery and worked in the paediatric dentistry department, treating special needs children and addressing complicated developmental problems. She also worked with adults requiring the replacement of multiple teeth.

Returning to London to take up a position as a senior house officer in oral surgery, Dr Wong gained experience in dental and facial surgery. One of her busiest nights was helping with the suturing of patients following a national rail crash.

Dr Wong was then accepted onto the specialty training programme at Guy’s Hospital, where she spent a further three years gaining her master’s degree. She continued onto a consultant training programme at King’s College and St George’s Hospital, gaining her Fellowship in orthodontics. Currently less than 300 UK practitioners have this level of training, with just 5 to 10 people gaining the accreditation in an average year.

Today, Dr Wong has acquired an excellent reputation for her highly sophisticated work and approachable, communicative manner. Her ambition is to be recognised as nothing less than the best orthodontist in London.
