On Friday 22nd September 2017, Dr Wong visited the Year 2 children at Pembridge Hall in Notting Hill to chat about how to look after our teeth and also to compare “healthy” and “unhealthy” snacks.
Dr Wong also shared the Sugar Smart App which gave us some surprising information about the sugar content of various foods. The most shocking was Tomato Ketchup. Use the sugar smart app and e-mail us to tell us how many cubes of sugar in a squirty bottle of ketchup! Click here to use the Sugar Smart App
After a visit from Dr Wong, Miss Cairney a year 1 Teacher from Pembridge Hall School sent beautiful flowers along with a thank you note to Moira Wong Orthodontics. Miss Cairney also had this to say:
We are delighted that Dr Wong could visit our school.
After speaking to the girls, it is evident that they took away lots of information from the presentation! Thank you for the goody bags – the children are enthused with a new love of brushing their teeth using their new timer and toothbrush!
I will be sharing the sugar smart app with parents of Pembridge Hall in our newsletter – I think it will be an eye opener for many, it definitely was for me!
If you have dental concerns, please make an appointment with us.
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.
