Dr Doucet is a local pioneer of dental implantology. He’s placed thousands of dental implants over the years he’s been in private practice.

Dr Doucet grew up in the mid-west where his father and mother practiced dentistry while also raising cattle on their farm. In fact, Dr Doucet’s practice logo, the fleur-de-lis, is an adaption of the cattlebrand from his family’s ‘french’ cattle raising days!
Dr Doucet and his wife Patricia, have two grown children, Jenee and Paul. Besides his oral surgery career and his family, Dr Doucet enjoys karate, motorcycle riding, travel, working on his family’s farm, and hunting and fishing.
