Cameron Clokie is a surgeon, scientist, teacher, and entrepreneur. He is a Professor and the Head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Toronto. Dr. Clokie received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 1985 and subsequently a Ph.D. in bone regeneration related to interface development from McGill University. He has contributed to many publications and has lectured internationally on a variety of topics related to oral regeneration and university-related technology transfer. In 1993, Cameron established his bone research group at McGill University (subsequently moved to the University of Toronto in 1998) that has been actively involved in the evaluation and development of new bone regenerative technologies.
The fundamental goal of his work is to develop bioimplants that will eventually replace the need for autogenous bone grafts. He also maintains a busy clinical practice in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Toronto, Ontario, with a focus on facial reconstruction and bone regeneration.
