Meet Philadelphia, PA Dentist Dr. Derek Conover

Dr. Derek Conover is a gifted clinician focused on esthetic and advanced restorative dentistry. His interdisciplinary approach to dental care is grounded in empirical research, clinical experience, and ever-evolving technique. He has completed extensive in-person training by a Who’s Who of clinicians, including Frank Spear, Walter Cohen, Bob Winter, Barry Glassman, Jeff Rouse, Markus Blatz, Miguel Ortiz, and Gregg Kinzer.

Dr. Conover is an in-demand speaker often invited to speak for various professional groups and organizations, including Dental Nachos. Dr. Conover has been voted a Top Dentist by Philadelphia Magazine since 2018 and continues to be a sought-after professional in the field of dentistry.

While successfully building a premier group of dental practices in Philadelphia, Dr. Conover spends the majority of his time on complex reconstructive dental care. Increasingly aware of the preparation and commitment these cases require, he committed to a more exclusive, bespoke practice model treating a subset of patients with truly comprehensive care. With that vision in mind, Dr. Conover partnered with one of the region’s most well-known esthetic dentists, Dr. Pamela Doray in 2021.

Dr. Conover considers his esthetic approach to anti-aging dentistry with properly designed and delivered restorations supporting facial harmony and a youthful smile.

Dr. Conover lives with his wife Joanna, a Board Certified Endodontist, and their two children.
