Hi, I'm Dr. Derek and I would like to welcome you to Busciglio Smiles. Having grown up right here in Brandon, I take great pride in creating gorgeous smiles for my friends and neighbors in the community. I am a board-certified orthodontist, and I've been practicing for over 15 years.
I began learning the field from my father, Dr. John Busciglio, who was also a board-certified orthodontist and started the practice in 1972. Our training (both at Tufts University in Boston) and our time practicing together have made a huge difference in the quality and level of care Busciglio Smiles provides. Our orthodontic and pediatric care is second to none!
Our practice has been beautifying smiles in the local community for nearly 50 years, and we continue to grow and deliver orthodontic and pediatric dentistry care to the patients of Hillsborough County and beyond.
As an orthodontist dedicated to my craft, I am constantly striving to stay abreast of the latest technology through continuing education. Not only am I a Diamond+ Invisalign® provider, I give lectures throughout the country teaching other orthodontists to provide above-and-beyond Invisalign® treatment. Teaching others while simultaneously learning from their experiences has been an invaluable experience, which has allowed me to provide the best care possible to each and every patient that walks through my doors.
Continuous learning is critical in the ever evolving-field of dentistry, and Orthodontics in particular. Being a Diamond+ Invisalign® provider means that we are in the top 1% of providers. This assures patients that we are among the most experienced in the world at utilizing these technological advancements in our patients' treatments. Additionally, I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the West Coast Dental Association, and the Southern Association of Orthodontists.
