Happy first dental experience

Posted on Nov 13, 2014 in Happy Patients

Francesca took her son to visit Dr Wong for the first time last week. She was so impressed with the facilities and the service that not only does she give us great feedback but she also recommends the clinic to her friends. Below is her testimonial.

‎”We booked the first dental appointment for our five-year old, in the hope his first experience would be as pleasant and gentle as possible. I have to say it could not have been better – everything in Moira Wong’s clinic is geared to offer little patients an enjoyable experience. From the upbeat decor to the video games in the waiting room, to the cartoons playing in the consulting room, the environment could not have been more kid-friendly.

What really made the difference though was the wonderful paediatric dentist who put our little boy at ease and engaged him in a conversation, explaining and anticipating every aspect of the consultation. He was relaxed and curious, and proud to be sitting in the dentist’s chair as a big boy! The little gift at the end was a wonderful touch, which will ensure he is eager to come back when the time for a follow-up visit comes. Overall extremely pleased, and have already recommended it to a few friends!”

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.
