Our Team

  • Dr Chanel Gallant (Dentist)

    Dr Gallant has been practicing General Family Dentistry in Victoria BC since 1999, after graduating from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Born in the maritime province of Prince Edward Island, she feels very much at home on Vancouver Island. When she is not looking after her family of patients, she enjoys spending time with her husband and young daughter, exploring all the island has to offer. Hiking, running, mountain biking, camping, and travel are a few of her favorite pastimes. She is proud and grateful to work with a fantastic, caring, and skilled team at Gallant Dentistry.

  • Debbie (Receptionist)

    I’m Debbie. I have worked here my entire career (37 years), the last 14 years with Dr. Gallant. When I first started working here I was a dental assistant, and after 8 years of assisting I moved to the front desk. Working with great co-workers in a cheerful atmosphere and knowing we provide top notch dental treatment will keep me here for as long as they will have me.

  • Kathi (Receptionist)

    Hi! I’m Kathi, and I started working in a dental office in Ucluelet when I was in grade 10 as part of a work experience program, and since then I have been involved in the dental profession for over 35 years as a CDA,  dental sales rep, dental adjudicator and receptionist.  I have served the profession as a board member for the Camosun College dental hygiene and certified assistant programs as well as President of the dental assistants’ member services association (CDABC) in 2001. 

    I love helping people make sense of all things dental, and hopefully playing a small part in making the whole experience a little more enjoyable.  My favourite part of the day is when the little ones need my expert opinion while picking out their prize.

  • Michelle (Certified Dental Assistant)

    Hi my name is Michelle and I am a Certified Dental Assistant. I graduated from Douglas College in 1984 and I have been working with Dr. Gallant for 14 years now. Having worked together for so long we make a very good and efficient team.

    When I’m not at work I like to be active so you can find me at the gym, out for a run or working in the backyard in the garden.

  • Jenna (Assistant/Receptionist)

    I’ve been working for Gallant Dentistry periodically since 2005 as a dental assistant and at the front desk. The thing I enjoy most about my job is interacting with patients and trying to make them feel at ease when they’re in the office. When I’m not at work you can find me enjoying Victoria’s beautiful outdoor life, at the gym, or with my head in a book!

  • Kelly (Certified Dental Hygienist)

    I’m Kelly and I’ve been a hygienist for 21 years now. I cater to cowards and can help you with your dental phobias. Our team is the best. We have a great bunch of girls here. I enjoy the peace and quiet of our hobby farm and love being outdoors with my husband and daughter. Whether it’s skiing, hiking, running, boating etc., we’re in it together.

  • Amber (Certified Dental hygienist)

    I’m Amber. I’ve been a dental hygienist with Gallant Dentistry since early 2006. My goal is to provide gentle effective care and education to help you improve your oral and overall health.

    Bossy but awesome wife, Mama to 2 busy kids, a 100lb Weimaraner and crazy Bengal cat. Our little family keeps busy tending to our hobby farm animals, playing with our machines, tools and other toys, traveling the world and living an active, healthy lifestyle! See you in my chair soon.

  • Tristyn (Certified Dental Hygienist)

    I’ve been a hygienist since 2012, most of which I’ve worked for Gallant Dentistry. I studied dental hygiene in Ontario, but am a true island girl. In my spare time I’m usually at my families fishing cabin, hiking or traveling. I love hygiene and chose this career because I get to meet a lot of new people, all while helping to improve our patients oral and overall health.
