Human bone regeneration and wildlife conservation come together

We have finally caught up with the regeneration abilities of lizards! Bone regeneration for dental implants is the latest technology that is transforming people’s lives. We can now regrow bone that has been lost or damaged, enabling people to have the dental implants that they need. Regeneration is something that many species have mastered already.

Here at Moira Wong Orthodontics, we recently held an evening for central and west London dentists with special guests, bone regeneration expert Dr Isabella Rocchietta and wildlife adventurer Safari Pete with his four-, six-, eight- and no-legged friends. Dr Rocchietta gave a lecture on this ground-breaking bone regeneration technique, offered in a fully integrated service with Moira Wong Orthodontics. Dr Rocchietta is one of only a handful of experts worldwide who has the expertise to regrow bone.

Safari Pete followed with a meet and greet with his fascinating friends, who all behaved brilliantly, including the poisonous scorpion crawling on the leg of a brave volunteer, Dr Phil Marsden. It was a night to remember!

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.
