OVERVIEW

Dr. Derek Bock [email protected] Derek Bock, DMD, MS grew up on the south coast of Massachusetts, near Cape Cod. He remained on the East Coast for his undergraduate studies at Stonehill College, just south of Boston. After receiving his Bachelor of Science (B.S.) as a double major in Biology and Chemistry from Stonehill, Dr. Derek continued his studies at the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. Tufts is one of the most competitive dental schools in the country. While at Tufts, Dr. Derek not only remained ranked at the top of his graduating class, but honored both parts of his National Dental Board exams. Besides the many numerous awards and distinctions that were bestowed upon him, it was at Tufts where he met Dr. Anokhi (they were classmates)! They both received a Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree from Tufts University in May 2003. Following his dental school graduation, Dr. Derek moved to the Midwest to complete his post-graduate training in Orthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He completed a three-year residency in orthodontics and obtained his Master of Science (M.S.) in Oral Sciences. In addition to his residency, Dr. Derek also completed a one-year fellowship in Craniofacial Orthodontics at the University of Illinois Craniofacial Center. It was during this fellowship where Dr. Derek received additional training in dealing with orthodontic problems as they relate to children with craniofacial syndromes, especially cleft lip/palate. He also co-authored an article that was featured in the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery: "Natal teeth: a potential impediment to nasoalveolar molding in infants with cleft lip and palate." J Craniofac Surg. 2005 Mar;16(2):262-6 Dr. Derek's scholarly interests include advanced concepts of smile design as they related to facial balance and harmony. He has done extensive research of the width of smile as it relates to facial harmony. He has an article pending publication on "The Perception of Buccal Corridors in Smile Esthetics". Dr. Derek is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He is an active member of the ADA (American Dental Association), the AAO (American Academy of Orthodontists), the ABO (American Board of Orthodontics), the ISO (Illinois Society of Orthodontists), the ISDS (Illinois State Dental Society), the CDS (Chicago Dental Society), and the ACPCA (American Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Association). During his free time Dr. Derek is an avid golfer; he also loves running, cycling, and competes in triathlons. He is an accomplished guitar player, and believes that creating music should be a fundamental activity that every child should have the opportunity to participate in. He and his wife, Dr. Anokhi, enjoy outdoor activities with their daughters, Bela, Asha, and their Labrador Retriever, Cooper.
