A DENTIST FOR ALL YOUR FAMILY, FROM CHILDREN TO ELDERLY.
Recommended by the brightest smiles for almost 60 years!
In 1960, Dr. Lucien Touchette, recently graduated from the Université de Montréal, was the first dental surgeon trained in modern dentistry to settle in Gatineau. The small clinic of the beginning, with 2 chairs and 2 employees, is today the largest dental clinic in the Outaouais! With its 10 operating rooms, state-of-the-art equipment, 30 loyal and committed employees, a complete, versatile and talented team of 7 experienced dentists, the Touchette Dental Center has become a reference in all areas of dentistry: whether it is the care of fearful children, implantology, surgery or the most complex cases of aesthetic restoration. We are extremely proud to have won and maintained the trust of patients from all over the Outaouais, as well as the many families who have remained faithful to us for three generations and we would like to express our gratitude to our employees who put them every day in practice, the service and quality values that have characterized us for nearly 60 years.
Go to the dentist as we go to the hairdresser
In Quebec, dental treatment is covered by the Régie de l'assurance maladie only for children under 10 years of age. We often hear that dental care is expensive. Although mentalities have evolved considerably since the days when most Quebeckers consulted the dentist only urgently, work remains to be done: too many people still consider dental care as a luxury! However, a child who attends the dentist and acquires good dental hygiene habits from an early age will have very few caries or other oral problems during his life. Our experience of the last 50 years and the many families who consult us regularly for 3 generations prove it to us! Regular visits allow us to treat dental health problems as soon as they appear at the lowest cost. That's why the Touchette Dental Center places such importance on the care and education of children. This is the legacy of Dr. Lucien Touchette who campaigned in the 1960s for the adoption of health insurance, who participated in the revolution mentalities and still allows us today to measure the role that has played RAMQ's dental coverage in the dental health of Quebecers. We believe that dental care, especially preventive care, must remain affordable and accessible to all. To those who still see dental care as a luxury, we ask: how much do you spend each year at the hairdresser? And for your beauty care? How much are you willing to pay for beautiful nails? How does it cost you to maintain your car? Your teeth deserve the same care! Two regular visits to the dentist: less than $ 400.00 a year is all you need to keep your teeth healthy all your life!
