Dr. Paul Ouellette has devoted his life to dentistry. Not only a highly skilled orthodontist, but he is also an educator, humanitarian, author, entrepreneur, philanthropist, inventor, and advocate of implementation of cutting-edge dental technology. Dr. Ouellette became interested in dentistry at the young age of 13 and never looked back. During his teenage years, Dr. Ouellette was interested in science and medicine, frequently placing first as a science fair competitor. He credits his interest in dentistry to his childhood orthodontist, who would later serve not only as a mentor and teacher, but as a role model.
Dr. Ouellette graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology & majoring in pre-dentistry. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Loyola School of Dentistry in Chicago, IL, and continued his education at Loyola for two additional years, graduating with a Certificate of Orthodontic Specialty and a Master of Science degree in Oral Biology.
After completing his orthodontic education, Dr. Ouellette taught full-time in the Orthodontic Department at Emory School of Dentistry, serving as Clinical Director and Assistant Professor. He eventually started a private practice in the metro Atlanta area. As the practice grew, Dr. Ouellette resigned from Emory, devoting his full attention to his practice, though he continued to present courses, lectures, table clinics, and contributed to professional journals when he was able.
In 2010, Dr. Ouellette completed the MCG Maxi Implantology residency, and the following year he completed the Advanced Implant Dentistry Program. In 2013, he was recognized as an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Dr. Ouellette’s countless contributions to the dental industry over the past 50 years are too numerous to list.
Dr. Ouellette’s successful and inspiring career influenced two of his sons to follow in his footsteps, whom are both practicing dentists in Florida. He has selflessly volunteered with mission trips to South America and Servants in Faith and Technology, a nonprofit Christian organization providing training in community development including skills for basic human needs such as physical, spiritual, social and economic.
When he isn’t treating patients, Dr. Ouellette enjoys tennis, boating, swimming, traveling and lecturing. He also enjoys marathon running and is a qualified Runner in the Boston Marathon.
