Owner, DMB Orthodontics, LLC.

Dr. Derek Buscigio is a Tampa native who grew up in Brandon and later Plant City, Florida.

Once back home, he joined the family orthodontic practice and began working alongside his father John. 3 years later, he had assumed control of the day to day operations of the office. Since the transition, Derek has opened new locations to the office and is continuing to grow the practice by adding pediatric dentistry as a specialty offered in all locations as well. Additionally, he completed the rigorous path to become a Diplomate of the American Board or Orthodontists, a distinction held by only 20 % or orthodontists nationwide.

Busciglio Smiles (dba) is a leader in orthodontic and pediatric care in the Bay area. Having the first full time orthodontic office in Brandon helped to establish what has proven to be a very successful practice. Its growth has allowed the Dr Busciglio to donate thousands of dollars to multiple charitable organizations in the communities it serves. As a Top 1 % Invisalign provider, the practice holds a distinction that separates itself from most dental practices worldwide. Dr. Busciglio lectures on the Invisalign system and its usefulness in comprehensive orthodontic treatment of both children and adults.

Derek married his wife Katie in 2010. Together they have one son, Rocco. Katie remains active with the Tampa Bay Humane Society on its board to raise and awareness and funds for neglected and abused animals in and around the Tampa Bay area.
