Dr Jason Weng Leong Wong, from the Maltings Dental Practice in Grantham, was selected for the prestigious honour for services to Dentistry and Oral Health.
As well as working at the Maltings, Dr Wong has been chair of the NHS Local Professional Network since 2013 and he has also played a vital role in working with local and national bodies, including Leicester City Council, Public Health England and Health Education England, to improve children’s dental health.
