Dr. Christian Rouleau

Dr. Rouleau's journey to becoming a maxillofacial surgeon in Miami began at Laval University in Canada, where he completed his DMD program entirely in French. He then came to the United States, where he completed his residency and furthered his education at Harvard MGH (Massachusetts General Hospital), earning his MD and completing his oral maxillofacial surgery training.

Choosing dentistry was a natural decision for Dr. Rouleau, who always knew he wanted a career that allowed him to work with his hands. With a family background in medicine, surgery was a compelling field, but it was dentistry and oral surgery that truly captured his interest. He spent five years practicing general dentistry in the military before focusing on oral surgery and pursuing education as a maxillofacial surgeon. The turning point in his career came after helping a young patient who was self-conscious about her smile. Witnessing the transformative impact of dental implant surgery on her self-perception and demeanor solidified his dedication to oral surgery.

Dr. Rouleau's approach to patient care is shaped by his broad range of experiences and a genuine understanding of the difference a confident smile can make. As a maxillofacial surgeon in Miami, he has the opportunity each day to see how a new smile can change a person’s life.

Personal Life

Originally from Quebec, Dr. Rouleau has made a home in Miami, Florida since 2009, embracing the opportunities for outdoor activities that the state offers. He is an avid scuba diver, enjoys sports, and engages in recreational spearfishing and lobster harvesting. Flying planes is another passion of his, taking advantage of Florida's favorable weather. When he's not in the air or underwater, Dr. Rouleau loves to ski.
