Profile

Professor Chong's professional career combines clinical practice with teaching, scholarship and research. He qualified from University College London and spent five years in general dental practice before pursuing specialist training. He was awarded his MSc. in Endodontics (with distinction) followed by his PhD from Guy's Hospital. In a special issue of the Journal of Endodontics on evidence-based endodontics, research studies on endodontic surgery by Professor Chong and his co-workers were accorded Level 1 status and recognised as forming part of the body of evidence and relevant literature on the subject.

Professor Chong was previously associated with Guy's, now part of King's College London, for over 22 years, where he was involved with the education and training of dentists and future specialists. He is a General Dental Council (UK) registered Specialist in Endodontics, and from 1990 to the present day, also in specialist private practice limited to endodontics in central London.

Professor Chong is the Editor-in-Chief (UK) of ENDO – Endodontic Practice Today, an international endodontic journal for general dental practitioners including specialists in endodontics and the official publication of the Belgian Association for Endodontology & Traumatology, French Society of Endodontics and Norwegian Endodontic Society. He is also on the Editorial Board of the International Endodontic Journal, a leading international forum for publications in the field of Endodontology and the official publication of the British Endodontic Society, European Society of Endodontology, Flemish Society of Endodontology, Irish Endodontic Society and Lebanese Society of Endodontology.
