"The first dental journal to be published in Canada was the Canada Journal of Dental Science, published by Dr. W. George Beers in Montreal, with the first issue appearing in June 1868. Dr. Beers was financing the journal from his own resources and subscribers were few in number. He soon moved the publication to Hamilton, Ontario, where Dr. Curtis Chittenden became assistant editor. Dr. Chittendon was one of the dentists who, with Dr. Barnabus Day, founded the Ontario Dental Association. The Canada Journal of Dental Science seemed to be in difficulty from the beginning. Dr. Beers stayed in Hamilton for only a short time before he moved the journal back to Montreal. There his financial struggle continued. The Canada Journal appeared monthly until 1871 then floundered. Only a few more sporadic issues were printed before it finally disappeared in 1879." Cf. http://www.cda-, pages VI-1.
