Dr Ha Minh Ky Nguyen
After leaving his native Vietnam at age 3, Minh Ky spent his childhood in the busy Montreal urban area. Once he completed his studies, he followed his better half to the spectacular Outaouais region, where he was instantly taken with the easy access to the great outdoors. An adept cyclist, hiker, and cross-country skier, he spends all four seasons in the Gatineau hills. Loving life to the fullest, and with lots of humour thrown in, he also has excellent manual dexterity and a good esthetic sense, two skills essential to providing all his patients with excellent dental care. Come meet him and receive efficient and professional care in a welcoming environment!
Dre Renée-Sophie Melançon
A native of the Outaouais, Renée-Sophie has always loved the Chelsea lifestyle. Walks in Gatineau Park were the bedrock of her childhood. As a student, she worked at several restaurants in Chelsea, eventually establishing herself as a dentist in the heart of this wonderful village. Somewhat shy, she is meticulous and makes it a point of honour to take all the time necessary to inform her patients and guide them through the different treatment options. Come meet her for your dental health needs in our peaceful ambiance!

Josefina’s life is filled with incredible, enthralling adventures. Indeed, once she decided to leave her native country to make a better future for her children, her life turned upside down. With unparalleled perseverance and remarkable optimism, she had to leave behind her dental hygienist job, her house, and her stable life in Colombia to start a whole new life in Canada, at the age of 35. She returned to school and obtained her Canadian Dental Assistant Diploma, with distinction. Josefina never lets anything take away her wonderful smile or her desire to help others. She carries out her work with passion and finesse. You will find her in all corners of the clinic, busily keeping our workplace in order. Aside from work, Josefina loves to dance, watch movies, and listen to la musica!
