Canada 150 - The Dental Directory





During our country's 150th anniversary celebration of confederation I will write posts titled Canada 150 with a link to a publication or website I find that may help you tell the story of your Canadian ancestors.
Click on the Canada 150 label on the right or at the bottom to see all the posts.

Today I have for you...



Dentists



Emma Gaudreau Casgrain was the first women to be licensed as a dentist in Canada in 1898.  She studied under her husband, a dental surgeon. She is listed on page 145 of the Directory, practicing on rue St Jean (St John St) in Quebec City until 1920.



In August 2016 Quebec author Sylvie Goebil published "De tendres aspirations", the story of Emma Gaudreau Casgrain. It is her fifth novel.
