Dr. Philippe Rouchon

Dr. Philippe Rouchon

Born in Rochester, NY, Dr. Rouchon graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a BS in biology.  He continued his studies at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, where he graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 2009.

Dr. Rouchon completed a one-year General Practice Residency program through Columbia University-Harlem Hospital in New York City, where he expanded his clinical skills in a hospital setting. He remained in NYC and practiced in various settings, including clinics and private offices, before moving to Washington, DC. Dr. Rouchon worked in private practices around the area before settling in the Kensington community.  

His passion for dentistry stems from wanting to help people fix their dental problems; he also enjoys the personal relationships he builds with his patients. Dr. Rouchon loves sports (especially soccer), running, and playing golf. He is married to Dr. Candace Rouchon, who has a Ph.D. in microbiology and was born and raised in Gaithersburg. They currently reside in Chevy Chase with their daughter Élodie.

Dr. Rouchon is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Maryland State Dental Association (MSDA), and the Southern Maryland Dental Society (SMDS).  He also serves on the Board of Directors at the Mary's Center.

Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Lauren, and I am the dental hygienist here at Rouchon Dental.  While my job is cleaning teeth, my true passion is putting my patients at ease and creating a comfortable atmosphere!

I recently returned to Maryland after living in Charlotte, NC, where I was originally licensed as a hygienist in 2012.  I love outdoor activities and trying out new restaurants, so I'll welcome any and all recommendations at your next visit!
