Dr. Cameron Clokie is a maxillofacial and oral surgeon, scientist and entrepreneur that lives and works in Toronto, Canada. The CEO of the regenerative medicine company Induce Biologics Inc., Dr. Clokie has been involved in clinical practice and academic dentistry for more than three decades.
Crunchbase reveals that Cameron Clokie has also done numerous presentations nationally and internationally and had many papers on regenerative medicine and bone reconstruction published. Cameron Clokie also holds 25 U.S. and international existing and pending patents. He has partnered with several companies to create commercially viable enterprises from his knowledge and ingenuity.
In 1985, Cameron Clokie graduated from McGill University with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. In 1990 he completed his specialty . Two years later, he graduated from McGill University with a doctorate in bone regeneration and the interface development of dental implants.
He was subsequently hired by the University of Toronto as an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery professor. Using his innovative approach to surgical management related to jaws, Dr. Clokie has become established as a leader in the use of dental bone regeneration techniques in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Dr. Clokie received international attention and acclaim when he used an innovative new technique he pioneered to make seven centimeters of bone regrow in the jaw of one of his 60 year old patients. The patient’s bone mass in the lower right of his jaw was lost in 2003 due to a benign tumor.
The four hour procedure Dr. Clokie performed involved the use of bone morphogenetic protein. The protein helps adult stem cells transform themselves into bone tissue. The procedure could revolutionize reconstructive surgery. Learn more about Cameron Clokie: https://ca.linkedin.com/in/dr-cameron-clokie-136991109
Bone morphogenetic protein was discovered by renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Marshall Urist at UCLA in the 1950s. Dr. Clokie learned about the growth-inducing proteins while working with Dr. Urist for four years.
Dr. Clokie explained that the protein, found within the matrix of the bone, essentially resets the skeletal clock of the jaw to the bone generation embryonic state and coaxes bone growth like it would in a newborn baby. Dr. Cameron Clokie’s innovative, groundbreaking work is hailed as the future of dentistry.
