Dr Larry Au- Yong Siew Wai

Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) Malaya

MFGDP (UK) 

Dr Larry Au-Yong joined us upon graduation from Universiti Malaya in 2000.

In 2008, he received his MFGDP(UK). 

Dr Au-Yong sees and treats children of all ages ;) and delights in empowering his patients with the knowledge and know-how to improve, regain and maintain the health, appearance and function of their pearly whites.

He goes beyond just treating teeth, as recent advances in medicine conclusively proves that the healthy function of the mouth is intimately linked to the health and function of the airway and breathing, posture, sleep quality, heart health and overall quality of life.

Of special interest to Dr Au-Yong are the sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD). Sleep apnea, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome and snoring are some examples of SRBD, which can affect both children and adults. 

In people with SRBD,  their sleep quality is significantly affected by their inability to properly breathe while asleep. Unfortunately, most sufferers of SRBD are largely unaware that they are not breathing properly while asleep.

Signs and symptoms of SRBD in adults include snoring, open mouth while asleep, teeth grinding during sleep, dry mouth when waking in the morning, morning headaches, unrefreshing sleep, daytime tiredness, chronic fatigue, lethargy, chronic aches and pains, insomnia, mental fog, and depression. A significant percentage of people with hypertension, heart disease and diabetes also suffer from SRBD, which complicates their heart and metabolic issues.

While in children, SRBD is manifested by one or more of the following: mouth breathing, teeth grinding while sleeping, restless sleep, hyperactivity, ADHD-like behaviour, poor performance in school, frequent nasal congestion, ear infections, etc.

Fortunately, SRBD can be managed and resolved by a team of specialists comprising dentists, ENT surgeons and other medical specialities. People who are successfully treated often report significant positive changes to their overall health and life. 

Dr Au-Yong seeks to detect signs of SRBD in his patients, who may not even be aware that they have SRBD, so that he can help them improve their breathing, sleep quality and their overall health.

Dr Au-Yong is happily married with 2 teenage children.

MFDS

Dr Wong joined Sim and Hooi dental group in 2019 as a Specialist Orthodontist. He was trained at Guy’s and St. Thomas’s Hospitals that comprises the King’s College Health Partners in London. He qualified from all the Royal Colleges in the United Kingdom after successfully passing the examinations conducted in Edinburgh, England and Glasgow.

 

During his training period and now in his practices, he focuses on interceptive orthodontics which involves any treatment procedures of that aim to eliminate or reduce the severity of a developing malocclusion. Early diagnosis of certain features of a malocclusion in the growing child and its early intervention using removal appliance or simple fixed appliance will certainly reduce the complexity of the malocclusion from developing as the child grows older. In addition, he does prescribe customised growth modification appliances i.e. facemark appliance (Class III type of malocclusion) and customised Twin-block functional appliances (Class II type of malocclusion) for children with jaw discrepancies.

 

He tailors his treatment plan for each of his patient through diagnostic records such as medical and dental histories, scanned study models of teeth, photographs of a patient’s face and teeth and X-rays. He analyses patient data to determine patient needs or treatment goals. He has a wide experience in treating different malocclusions among teenager groups. He provides traditional fixed appliances (train-track braces), self-ligating appliances (Damon, Smart, In-Ovation R etc) to meet his patients' needs.

 

In view of increased awareness among adults groups, Dr Wong treats a number of adult patients who request a better smile, making teeth fit better and decreasing the risk of future dental problems regardless of age. Advances in orthodontics have also made treatment more comfortable and less noticeable than ever for individuals of all ages and thus increase the acceptance among adult group. Therefore, he provides Clear aligner treatment i.e Invisalign or ceramic braces for these group of patients.

 

Dr Wong is a member of British Orthodontics Society and European Orthodontic Society. When he is not working as an orthodontist, he enjoys reading and travelling.
