Summer Barbecue for Dentists

Moira Wong Orthodontics BBQ Event With Local Dentists: A fun evening to treat local dentists to great company, delicious food and live music.

To celebrate the opening of Moira Wong Orthodontics, we held a get-together for local dentists to see our new, state of the art practice. It was delightful to finally have an opportunity to meet dentists in the local area of Chelsea and Kensington and even further afield. In addition to that, we were happy to have Moira Wong Orthodontics staff members, Dr Wong’s friends and former colleagues attending the event.

The BBQ got quite exciting when the live music started – and eventually the guests chimed in too! What we treasured the most was the warm and friendly atmosphere of the party. Everyone had great stories to tell about Dr Wong and it was a chance for everyone to catch up and meet new people too. We were overwhelmed with the kind words from our guests. There were so many flashbacks to Dr Wong’s time at university, her first years working, in further training in the USA, then back to the UK and now with the triumph of her own practice.

When asked about the event, one attendee, Ms. Miranda Zhao, exclaimed: “Great time and beautiful practice! So tranquil!”

A very good friend of Dr Moira Wong, Dr Basil Mizrahi of Mizrahi Dental Teaching was really impressed with the new clinic and said: “Such a great party. Lovely premises. Wish you lots of success. Looking forward to the next party!”

The party ended with lots of goodbyes from our guests with beautiful smiles on their faces. “I am so happy and grateful for today,” said Moira Wong, “your smiles and laughter are what makes me more passionate about my job — to help give people beautiful smiles. That’s the happiest moment in an orthodontist’s career.”

Many thanks to all of our dear friends and guests who attended the event. We really appreciate it and we hope to see you again at our Official Opening with the blessing from the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea supporting the charity Borne.

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.
