We provide unique care for patients with special needs and those who need habit-breaking appliances and assistance.
Dr. Derek Busciglio is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He’s dedicated his life to providing patients with the most effective orthodontic and pediatric dentistry services possible.
The story of our office doesn’t begin here, though. In fact, our office has been around since 1972, when Dr. Derek’s father, Dr. John Busciglio, founded the office as he began beautifying smiles in their home community of Plant City. For over five decades, Dr. John served Plant City patients along with those from Brandon, Lithia, and the surrounding areas.
Dr. Derek grew up around his father’s office and knew from an early age that he, too, was destined to be an orthodontist, helping others achieve their beautiful smiles. He pursued his education at his father’s school (Tufts University in Boston) and joined the practice while his father was still at the helm of Busciglio Smiles.
Dr. Derek has been caring for smiles now himself for more than 15 years. His skills and knowledge as a Diamond+ Invisalign provider are highly sought after, and he lectures across the country about Invisalign®, enabling other orthodontists to provide the same high-quality treatment.
Each of our doctors is equally dedicated to the care of our patients and all have pursued the highest education and practice continuing education to stay up-to-date in the latest technologies and techniques for enhancing your smile and caring for your oral health.
Our team of doctors hold memberships in a wide range of highly respected organizations, specifically so that we can serve you best. Some of the associations we represent include the American Association of Orthodontists, the West Coast Dental Association, the Southern Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Florida Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and the Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry.
Among our staff, we specialize in many unique treatments, ensuring your family has the highest quality care wherever you’re at in the journey.
