Jonathan Chartrand D. D.

His listening skills, his precision as well as the importance devoted to aesthetics provide ideal and optimal results.

In addition, Jonathan is a passionate conservationist who is deeply involved. For each dental prosthesis made, a tree will be planted in the area. This concrete gesture aims to contribute to the reforestation and the rehabilitation of precarious animal and plant populations. The trees are completely native, and planted according to their ideal geographic distribution. It is a small gesture that lessens the impact of the dental field on the environment. It’s a way for us to show that we care about our unique region and surrounding communities.
