Selecting the Right Dentist to Look After the Whole Family

Selecting the Right Dentist to Look After the Whole Family

Finding the right dentist who can look after both adult and children’s teeth is important for families. Having just one dental practice to attend for all the family is more convenient.

Key takeaways:

  • Find a dental practice that will accept your insurance, and if you are not insured accepts payment plans.
  • You will want a dentist that the children and adults are comfortable with, so book an appointment to meet the staff before making a decision.
  • As well as a convenient location, check their opening times and for any emergency after hours policy.

“Before you consider the dentist and the practice, you’ll want to consider location and hours first. This is because both the location and their hours of operation will tell you how likely you are to be able to make appointments.”

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.
