Posted on January 1, 2018

A resident of Toronto, Ontario, Dr. Cameron Clokie is a medical doctor. He specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Additionally, he is a scientist. As an entrepreneur he launched a business called Induce Biologics, Inc. which does musculoskeletal reconstruction. He founded this company in 2008. The mission of this company is to offer patients bone regeneration to reconstruct their jaws after they have been affected by an injury or disease. The procedures are also designed to be cost-effective.

For about 30 years Dr. Cameron Clokie. was taught dentistry at the university level. His last position doing so was at the University of Toronto where he was the Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Additionally, he was the Head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for this same educational institution, a position he had held since 1998. He retired from these positions in 2017.

During his career, Dr. Cameron Clokie has published many papers and articles about his specialty. He has also made many presentations to other dentists. His work has been presented both in Canada and internationally. Altogether he has 25 patents, in both the United States and internationally, many of which involve bone healing and regrowth.

It was in 1993 that Dr. Cameron Clokie started his research into bone regrowth. At the time he was at McGill University and when he transferred to the University of Toronto in 1998 he took his research team with him. His research was into developing bioimplants which would replace autogenous bone grafts. Regrowing the patient’s own jawbone looks better aesthetically and it doesn’t affect other parts of the body, such as having to remove bone from the patient’s shin to have it placed into their jaws.

One patient that Dr. Cameron Clokie had great success with was a 60-year-old man who had lost part of his jaw due to a benign tumor. Dr. Clokie was able to regrow the missing jaw part, which was 7cm long. The patient afterward said that he felt like his jawline looked like that of someone 20 years younger than he was.
