My Journey

I’m very passionate about what goes on in my practice so I’ve handpicked a team who shares my vision. We constantly pursue top quality continuing education in an effort to provide an uncompromising quality of care and service.

My philosophy is to provide you with genuine care by focusing on the 'whole' person - how the restored beauty, form and function of a healthy smile contribute to your overall health and wellness.

Your comfort is our highest concern, so if you're anxious, rest assured you'll be in good hands to help you feel relaxed. We use leading edge technologically to help communicate as well as keep you comfortable. We understand that Dr. Rioux may be the only doctor a patient may see in a given year so we want to get to know each of our patients as a person first.

Outside the Office

When I'm not being a Gig Harbor dentist, I love being outdoors and enjoy mountain and snow biking, skiing and water sports. I also love thoroughly puttering in the garden and watching my kids Brev (born 2000) and Adele (born 2005) playing on the zip line, slack lines, or feeding the chickens. We have an indoor/outdoor aviary filled with birds and also share our home with two cats, two dogs and two parrots!

My Military Experience:

  • Served in the U.S. Army as an intelligence analyst from 1985 to 1989
  • Completed Arabic language program at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California.
  • While stationed at Point Mugu, pursued the extra training required and, with a stroke of good luck, became one of the few Navy Dental Officers to fly “backseat” in a U.S. Navy F-14 “Tomcat."
 

What else is there to wait for? See how we plan to rejuvenate your smile!
