Oral cancer

During your oral assessment, we examine the head and neck, lymph nodes, as well as the soft and hard tissues of the mouth to detect any abnormalities that would require a consultation with a dentist or specialist.


We check head and neck structures, oral tissues, teeth, gums, occlusion and more. This assessment also allows us to offer you treatment options and recommendations to optimize your dental health.


Whether it is to consult a dental professional in orthodontics, periodontics, denturology, etc., you can count on us to guide you in the right direction.

Scaling &
Dental cleaning

Scaling (dental cleaning) removes biofilm and tartar above and below the gum line using manual instruments or ultrasonic devices. Scaling helps ensure good oral health by preventing and controlling gingival and periodontal diseases.

Polishing &
Stain removal

Dental polishing is done by using a handpiece and a pumice-based paste. Polishing helps remove biofilm (plaque) and stains from teeth by making the surface smooth.


If you experience sensitivity during your cleaning, we can use topical agents to temporarily numb the gums without the need for an injection.


Dental sealant is a product applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth, in children or adults, to help prevent cavities by facilitating hygiene.

    Mélissa Gervais, RDH & Founder of ChezSoi Dentaire

    I’d like to introduce myself, Mélissa Gervais, dedicated dental hygienist since 2013. I graduated from the Cégep de l'Outaouais with honor, recipient of the Excellence Scholarship from the Cégep de l'Outaouais, the Meritas Student in Dental Hygiene from the OHDQ in 2013 and the Outstanding Achievement Award in Dental Hygiene. I was also president of the 2010-2013 cohort while working as a dental secretary throughout my schooling. It goes without saying that dental hygiene has always been a passion for me. From my early days in this field, I always knew I wanted to do more. I aspired to be able to provide accessible dental hygiene services for everyone. Therefore, I waited patiently for dental hygienists’ independence in Quebec. Since then, I have worked for two years in a dental clinic in Gatineau before moving to western Canada. During my four year stay in Alberta, I was able to practice independently, which gave me confidence in my expertise and skills as a dental hygienist. The independence of dental hygienists finally saw the light of day in Quebec following my return to Gatineau, which led me to realize my dream of a mobile dental hygiene clinic.

    In Quebec, dental hygienists can perform several acts without the supervision of a dentist since the adoption of Bill 29 in September 2020. To protect the public, independent dental hygienists must comply with the strict standards of the Ordre des Hygiénistes Dentaires du Québec, that is to say, renew their CPR training, undergo professional inspections and keep their knowledge up to date by participating in continuing education hours. In addition, it is mandatory to be registered with the Fédération des Hygiénistes Dentaires du Québec and the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association. *For more details on the legality of acts eligible for independent dental hygienists, please consult the website of the Ordre des Hygiénistes Dentaires du Québec.
    For everyone ! Whether it is families, workers, students, the elderly, people with special needs, with reduced mobility or in remote areas, you will save time and money by taking advantage of a mobile dental hygiene clinic. This service is ideal for people who are anxious of dental visits. You can receive your care in your home or comfortably installed in the van. Anyone wishing to receive dental hygiene services is welcome.
    ChezSoi Dental offers preventive dental hygiene services in a van converted into a dental room. It’s a tiny dental clinic on wheels! We come to you and you just have to come aboard to receive your treatments. The van has heating and AC with an environment customizable to your needs. We offer a choice of music, TV, dimmable light, warm or weighted blanket, noise canceling headphones, earplugs and more. We also provide in-home services with portable dental equipment. Your dental hygienist transports their chair, equipment and materials directly to a room in your home. We can go to your home, workplace, school, daycare, retirement home, long term care facility, community center or any other place. Our services are also offered to organizations.
    Currently, mobile services are available for the Outaouais region. We mainly serve the city of Gatineau and surroundings. For regions more than 45 minutes from downtown Gatineau, we organize one-day tours per city according to a monthly schedule and demand. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information on availability.
    First, your medical and dental history will be reviewed with your dental hygienist. A comprehensive evaluation of the head and neck, the tissues of the mouth as well as the teeth and gums will be completed. Then, your dental hygienist will develop a treatment plan adapted to your oral situation and specific to your needs. She will advise you on the tools and products to optimize your dental health. She will then proceed with the cleaning. After, she will complete your care with polishing, an application of fluoride, anti-cariogenic or desensitizing agent as needed.
    You can rest assured that our hygienists are gentle and thorough. In the event that your gums or teeth are sensitive during your cleaning, your hygienist can offer you several alternatives. The application of a desensitizer or topical anesthesia is possible. If you need more comfort, we offer needle-free anesthesias like Oraquix or Cetacaine that numbs longer and more effectively.
    If in doubt of a carie following the evaluation made by your dental hygienist, you will be referred to a dentist for an examination. Dental hygienists are licensed to perform an assessment of your dental health, but cannot make a diagnosis. Only a dentist can confirm the presence of caries or any other dental conditions. This is why we suggest that you be seen by a dentist once a year for an exam and x-rays if necessary. However, in some cases of incipient caries, your dental hygienist can apply silver diamine fluoride to try to stop the progression.
    You can contact us by phone or text message at 819-918-5577, by email , our Facebook page *ChezSoi Dentaire* or at the bottom of the page.

We can also submit electronically to your dental insurance on your behalf.
