Two lovely new patients enjoy their first visit at Moira Wong Orthodontics

Last week, two young patients from Notting Hill, Nellie (age 5) and Finn (age 8), visited our practice for the first time.

The practice’s Paediatric Dentist, Dr Colomar, examines Nellie’s teeth.

We gave them a thorough check-up and general exam of their teeth. The kids had sealants put on to protect their molars. Dr Colomar gave a practical and fun talk to them to demonstrate how to brush their teeth with maximum effect, showing how to be more focused on the different surfaces of their teeth when brushing.

Dr Colomar shows Nellie how to brush her teeth correctly and thoroughly.

Nellie and Finn’s dad said: “Each child’s visit lasted more than 45 minutes, compared to literally 5-10 minutes on the NHS. I was really, really impressed with it, and of course, the facility here.”

“Dr Colomar even showed them how to brush their teeth and was so thorough in doing so. My little daughter Nellie often gets distracted easily but wow…I was amazed at how she paid so much attention to Dr Colomar’s demonstration of tooth brushing,” said the father of two.

The children loved their visit so much that they can’t wait to go back again; we also promised Finn that he could come back anytime to finish the racing game at the play area that we’ve designed for our young patients.

Finn absolutely loves the games area at Moira Wong Orthodontics.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our patients for putting their trust in us and recommending our services to their family and friends.

If you have dental concerns, please make an appointment with us.
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.
