Dr Moira Wong holds a professional talk on ‘Multidisciplinary Management of Adult Patients’ at Luton and Dunstable Hospital

Earlier this month, Dr Moira Wong delivered a presentation on ‘Multidisciplinary Management of Adult Patients’ at Luton and Dunstable Hospital. The orthodontics talk attracted a large group of professionals from the local area and further afield, and it proved to be a huge success.

Currently there is increasing demand among adult patients for aesthetic solutions. In more than 20 years working in the industry, Dr Wong has seen a wide range of patients with serious oral problems such as over-crowding, ageneses, edentulous spaces from old extractions and periodontal problems.

In order to deal with such issues, it is a must for orthodontists to come up with interdisciplinary strategies that will help orthodontic professionals carry out the complex treatments these cases require.

Since obtaining a fellowship in orthodontics, Dr Wong has practiced and conducted extensive research on multidisciplinary management of adult patients. Hoping to share her experience in this field and suggest better practice for her colleagues, Dr Wong led the talk at Luton and Dunstable Hospital with a strong focus on most effective interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches.

Dr Moira Wong also discussed the links between adult orthodontics and periodontics, prosthetics and temporomandibular disorders. She ran several group activities for attendees to exchange their ideas on the issues and to learn from each other’s experience.

The talk received very positive feedback from attendees and Dr Wong herself was thanked for putting forward practical advice and suggestions.

This year Moira Wong Orthodontics is focusing on helping the community gain a better understanding about oral health, especially orthodontics. We’re working  closely with community organisations, schools and hospitals, leading free workshops and presentations.

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.
