Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; this item was donated by Dr. Pierre Surprenant from Sherbrooke, Quebec; in the days before dental offices had running water, unhygienic spittoons were the bane of most dentists' existences, as they had to clean them after every patient; spittoons were finally made obsolete by the 1970s with the use of high vacuum aspirators
