Dr. Chouinard actually grew up surrounded by the field of medicine—his mother was a Registered Nurse and his father was a physician. Once he got to college, though, he decided that he wanted to take a slightly different path for his own career. Growing up his neighbor, Dr. Nast, was a dentist, and he let Dr. Chouinard shadow him one summer. This experience showed him that he could succeed in the oral healthcare world and even become his own boss while still helping others and providing for his family in a small-town setting.
After attending Truman State University for his undergraduate degree, Dr. Chouinard pursued his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Missouri-Kansas City; following graduation, he spent a year working at a community health clinic in Cape Girardeau before joining Dr. Nast’s private practice. Along the way, he’s pursued a great deal of continuing education to further expand his skills, including occlusion courses with Dr. Dawson, numerous dental implant courses and seminars, and CEREC Level 1 & 2 training. He is currently a member of the following dental organizations:
American Dental Association
Missouri Dental Association
Southeast Missouri Dental Society
GROWS Implant Study Group
