Dr. Derek Bosch
Dr. Derek BoschDentist, DDS
I have been practicing dentistry since 1979 and received my DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) from the University of Toronto. I moved to Calgary at that time and had a dental practice in NW Calgary for many years. I moved the office downtown in 2009.

I enjoy being a general dentist. As a general dentist, I am usually able to see a case through from start to finish. An attractive smile is a beautiful thing, and I love to be able to create things of beauty. I enjoy cases that allow some creative license. If I can keep it simple – that’s great. If it has to be more involved – we have to do what it takes. If you look through some of the cases in the photo gallery, I hope you will be able to see why I might like my job.

Dentistry is a profession that allows me to use my hands and my head and use some cool technology too. With all of the diverse elements involved, it means I still consider it a privilege to be involved in the profession at a time when so many wonderful things are possible. It’s not always easy, but it is rewarding. I devote a great deal of time to continuing dental education to stay abreast of the many developments in dental care. There have been many changes over my 30 years as a dentist and there is always more to learn. Also, after 30 years as a dentist, there are families where I have seen the children grow up to become parents themselves and bring in their own children so that I get to know three generations of some families. I like that about my job too.

To satisfy my love of travel and languages, my hobby of photography and to gain some further perspectives both on dentistry and on life in general, I have worked overseas as a dental volunteer on 14 occasions – having had the opportunity to work in Haiti, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. There I could simultaneously pull some teeth and practice French and Spanish. Occasionally I still get to visit some relatives in Holland and to keep my childhood Dutch from getting too rusty.
