Moira Wong Orthodontics featured in PPDentistry Magazine!

We’re delighted to announce our practice was featured in the Business Design section of the well-respected PPDentistry Magazine.

In the article, “Style Counsel – Working with history”, Dr Wong told the magazine how she transformed a former hair salon into the brand-new beautifully designed practice you can see today.

A lot of work went into creating this stunning practice. The building was pretty much falling down when Moira bought it. The entire project took almost two years from putting in an offer for the premises to refurbishment work being completed.

Moira also shares the little known fact that the design of her new practice was inspired by her dear friends and family. Moira worked closely with architect Alan Tate of Grey Associates to help her design and plan the new space.

With her own ideas for the interior, Moira developed these ideas by talking to close friends and family, rather than turning to an interior designer. She said “Lots of wonderful friends came up with ideas, including Veronique Zorzi, who has been an inspiration throughout the project.”

The impressive practice has been open since early last year and has brought new smiles to many patients in the areas of Chelsea and Kensington.

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.
