Dr. Rioux has been passionate about pharmacology for a long time. He tries to use his education in pharmacy in his everyday practice. He began his university studies by completing a Bachelor’s degree in health sciences (pharmacy) at Université Laval in 1991. Subsequently, he obtained his Doctorate in Dentistry from the University of Montreal in 1996. In 1997, he completed a multidisciplinary residency at the Royal Victoria Hospital of McGill University. He then moved to the prestigious University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he completed a day school in maxillofacial surgery. From 1997 to 2001, Dr. Rioux managed to improve his knowledge in medicine and pharmacology, as he received training in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the Enfant-Jésus Hospital in Quebec City.
Since 2001, Dr. Rioux has limited his practice to implantology and oral surgery. He founded the Dr. Dave Rioux Implantology Network and since then a growing number of denturists have joined.
