Dr. Bocklet has an extensive technical background. He graduated from Clemson University in 1983 with a degree in ceramic engineering. After working as a process development engineer with Union Carbide for five years, he entered dental school. He received his DMD degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1992 and his masters in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from the University of North Carolina in 1995.
Dr. Bocklet is passionate about orthodontics and serving his community. He stays current in orthodontic literature and constantly updates evidence-based technology in his office to ensure his patients are receiving the best orthodontic treatment. He also invests in his community, both locally and afar, by supporting local non-profits such as Water Mission International, partnering with local schools, and working with dental students on international missions. For Dr. Bocklet, orthodontics is more than providing a great smile; it’s about building relationships and giving patients and the community a reason to smile.
In his free time Dr. Bocklet enjoys spending time with his family - his wife Carey and his two sons Michael and Chris. Michael is currently in orthodontic residency at MUSC and is planning to join the practice in 2023. Chris is in his 4th year of dental school at MUSC and is also planning to join the practice. Dr. Bocklet and his sons enjoy skiing, golfing, surfing, and soaking in all that the Lowcountry has to offer.
