Dr. Olivier Broutin
His Passion for Dentistry
Some people seem born for what they do – they love their work with such fervor, and are so dedicated to excellence, that it is contagious. Dr. Olivier Broutin is one of those people. His passion for dentistry is a lifetime passion and it has not faded. “Mondays come easy for me,” said Dr. Broutin in a recent interview. “I love my work. I love dentistry. There is nothing else I want to do.”
The truth is, Dr. Broutin is a passionate man. He loves food and all its nuances and flavors. He loves to run, always pushing the limits of his ability. He is an avid learner, taking more continuing education courses – from the most prestigious institutions including Las Vegas Institute, considered the most advanced post graduate cosmetic institution in the world. That is more training than 95 percent of dentists worldwide! He believes that continuing education is not a want, but a need. He likes to surround himself with the dental greats because when it comes to dental care, there is always something more to learn. But he doesn’t just learn about dentistry, he teaches it too, working as a visiting faculty instructor at the University of Florida College of dentistry.
Where did all this dedication and passion come from? Dr. Broutin grew up in France, where his father was a dentist. He spent hours in his father’s laboratory and office and developed a love for the design and artistry of dentistry at a very early age. “My father was a dentist, my wife is a dentist and her father is a dentist. You could say it runs in the family. I’ve wanted to be a dentist since I was 5 years old. The sense of excitement and love for dentistry continues to sustain me and I feel truly fortunate to do what I love.” At 16, he announced his decision to attend dental school – and, to his father’s surprise, declared that he wanted to study and practice in the United States.
Dr. Broutin studied dentistry at the University of Florida Dental School, where he was taught the principles of Dr. Pankey and Dr. Dawson, two of the most influential leaders of the movement toward healthful, balanced dentistry. After graduating in 1999, Dr. Broutin has continued to pursue post-graduate continuing education while working to create a unique private practice in which patients feel completely at ease and in which their needs are met with dedication and consummate skill.
Says Dr. Broutin, “I want people to come to my office and say ‘Wow! This is what I always wanted in a dentist!’ I am very careful with shots – I don’t want a single patient to feel any pain. I give my patients exactly what they need and I always treat patients like part of my family.”
Some of Dr. Broutin’s professional accomplishments include being featured as a top dentist in the field of cosmetic dentistry by the Panama City Living Magazine in 2011; being recognized as America’s Top Dentist by the Consumers’ Research Council of America for the years 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012; receiving CMUS “Talk Of The Town” 5 star award for outstanding customer service years 2011 and 2012; and being accredited with an A+ rating by the better business bureau since 1995. To top it all off, Dr. Broutin has been published in New Beauty Magazine!
In spite of all these honors and awards, Dr. Broutin remains dedicated to his community and has been involved with Children Volunteer Health Services since its inception and has received the Presidential Silver Award for the hundreds of hours dedicated to helping the children of Okaloosa and Walton county. In addition, Dr. Broutin dedicates time every year to be part of the Florida Baptist Mobile Dental Ministry providing dental care to the needy.
