Moira Wong visits Hawkesdown House School and Ladbroke Square Nursery and talks to pupils on keeping teeth healthy

In the past couple of weeks, Dr. Moira Wong has given two talks about brushing and good oral health to 3-year-old pupils at Hawkesdown House School in Kensington as well as nursery students at Ladbroke Square Nursery. The presentations were so practical and fun that the boys and girls and even teachers participated wholeheartedly in all activities.

Ladbroke Square Nursery is a Montessori school located not far from our practice. The children there are always curious and were fascinated by Dr Wong’s talk.

Hawkesdown House is an independent pre-preparatory school for boys aged three to eight and is also one of Dr. Moira Wong’s most enjoyable schools to visit. It is exactly what headmistress says: “A safe place where people are kind, considerate and capable, and where a boy can start his school life happily and make his early friends with confidence. A place of fun and success, to remember with warmth.”

All the little boys were so lovely and sweet. When Dr. Wong came in, the 3-year-old boys greeted her with great smiles and made her feel really welcome. Moira started the dental talk with her dinosaurs and explained what dental caries are as well as what good teeth and bad teeth are. With big brushes, Moira also demonstrated to all the pupils how to brush teeth on the big model dinosaurs.

Dr. Wong is a strong believer in prevention: the earlier the children are aware of how to take care of their teeth, the better the outcomes. That is why she had a presentation on how to prevent teeth problems, the difference between good food and bad food, with the children then working in groups to separate the good foods and the bad foods. After that, Moira showed the pupils a video about what kinds of good food they should eat to keep their mouths and teeth healthy.

Both visits were wonderful and once more confirm Dr Wong’s commitment to the community and how much she loves helping children to prevent any dental problems.

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.
