Dr Lloyd Buck was born and raised in Perth. He attended Christ Church Grammar School prior to studying Science and Engineering at the University of Western Australia. He then completed his Bachelor of Dental Surgery at the University of Adelaide, graduating on the Dean's list, and also his Bachelor of Science in Dentistry with First Class Honours looking at the prosthetic replacement of the temporomandibular joint. During his dental studies he received the J.L. Eustace Scholarship and the Dental Board of South Australia Research Scholarship. He was involved in representing the student body and was elected president of the Adelaide dental student society (AUDSS). After graduation Dr Buck worked as a general dentist at the Adelaide dental hospital and also in private practice in Adelaide, Bunbury and Sydney to ensure he had a well-rounded foundation in general dentistry prior to undertaking his specialist training in Orthodontics. He completed his Doctorate in Clinical Dentistry in Orthodontics at the University of Sydney, where he was awarded the John Reading prize for the best tabled case. His research has been published in respected international journals including a systematic review and meta-analysis of upper airway changes after maxillary expansion in the European Journal of Orthodontics, and work on surgically-assisted maxillary expansion in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
He enjoys the full scope of Orthodontic care, ranging from the interceptive care of young patients to correct developing orthodontic problems all the way to complex interdisciplinary adult treatment. He is an involved member of the Australian Society of Orthodontists and the Australian Dental Association, regularly attending national and international meetings to maintain his knowledge in the latest research and technology in Orthodontics. Dr Buck has been admitted to the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons.
His wife, Dr Jippy Buck, is also a Specialist Orthodontist. They have two young sons, with another child on the way. Dr Buck believes in providing honest advice and in delivering an exceptionally high standard of treatment to his patients. For this reason, he would not recommend anything that he would not advise to his own family.
In his limited spare time, he really enjoys working with his hands in activities like woodworking as well as spending time with family and friends.
