Dr. Clokie was heavily involved in the clinical and academic dentistry industry for over three decades before he finally decided to retire and focus on his other ventures.
He has a great interest in bone reconstruction so that is where he decided to focus his efforts. The University of Toronto gave him the position of Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and he was also named as their Head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery during his prime in 1998.
He continues to prove himself a capable member of the oral and facial reconstruction community and has also served on a variety of scientific advisory boards for many different companies.
Dr. Cameron Clokie has also published many different papers and presentations on the subject of regenerative medicine and bone rebuilding.

BMP is able to interact with the stem cells in the adult body. This gives them the ability to grow into human tissue. In 1999, Dr. Clokie repaired the first jawbone in the world and began investigating how BMP could be used in that process.
Working with a biotech firm that farms BMP using Chinese hamsters, Dr. Cameron Clokie was able to perform the procedure several other times and now this technique is being used by surgeons in South Africa. Dr. Clokie has many more plans for this protein and wants to continue researching it so they are able to utilize it to its fullest potential.
