Last week we hosted a wonderful evening with local dentists who joined us for Dr Moira Wong’s CPD talk. There was great music, drinks, magic, laughing and learning.
Dr. Moira Wong always wanted to organise a fun and informative event for dentists based in Central London, including Harley Street and Kensington and Chelsea, to get to know them better and create a friendly and supportive professional network.
There was no better time than a Friday evening in mid-November. We spent almost two months planning and organising the event to make sure all dentists would immediately feel welcome the minute they walked into our practice.
We asked the lovely owner of Portobello Ristorante & Pizzeria to prepare a delicious Italian spread for our guests. Moira delivered a talk that counts towards the dentists’ CPD: Multidisciplinary management of complex adults. It was an opportunity for us to showcase our practice’s achievements over the years.
So many dentists told us how wonderful the party was and how much they enjoyed it. We were honoured to have Rev’d Canon Dr Father William Taylor join us and to bless the practice.
To keep the event fun and enjoyable, Moira Wong invited a magician, who surprised the guests with his talents. A string trio from the Royal College of Music delighted us with their beautiful music. Many dentists told us that this type of event which counts for CPD is unusual and they were very impressed with it. We were pleased with the feedback and will certainly host more in the future!
Here Dr Anil Shrestha speaks about Dr Wong and the practice.

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.
