The Positive Ageing Symposium, organised by world-renowned Kensington-based EF Medispa, was the first of its kind, providing an in-depth understanding of all issues related to positive ageing.
This fabulous evening sparked many interesting and informative discussions. All attendees said they thoroughly enjoyed learning from our expert partners SkinCeuticals, Matt Roberts Personal Training, Nutritionist Kim Pearson, and of course, Moira Wong Orthodontics.
Surprising all guests, Dr Wong gave fantastic insights into how specialist orthodontics not only can help with facial shaping as we age but can also support your anti-ageing beauty treatments.

Through her lecture, Dr Wong explained that orthodontics are very beneficial for people who are bothered by their nasolabial folds and we can get rid of them without any surgery. Also called smile folds, they are the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
With ageing, the folds may become more pronounced and in some cases they can be quite deep and even cause discomfort. When the front teeth are aligned orthodontically, we aim to increase upper lip support and this in turn removes the nasolabial fold that appears as we age, helping to turn back the clock.

Dr Wong then led a Q&A session with many questions and feedback from attendees expressing their surprise that they could get rid of the folds organically.

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.
