That is, in professions, middle-class men sought to meet the prevailing expectations of middleclass white manhood. Through professions they sought to define themselves as manly — and as we have seen manliness carried class, gender, and racial connotations. In this manner, the class, gender, and race interests of middle-class men led them to seek out professions and form professions in the late nineteenth century. Their backgrounds and identities also shaped the way these men went about creating and defining their professions, as we will see in later chapters.
Increased demand for dental services meant that dentists' ability to make a good living from dental practice improved. Accordingly, the number of dentists practising in Ontario gradually increased. However, it was still difficult for even a trained and educated dentist to sustain a full-time practice by remaining in one place. Dentists usually had practices that covered a wide area (Gullett 1971). Typically, they would establish a base office in a town or city, but they would also serve the surrounding towns and countryside.
These men sometimes had training in dentistry, but it was not very extensive: often as little as six weeks or even less (Wood 1898). They were typically more itinerant than those with more extensive training and travelled from city to city, town to town, and house to house soliciting patients. Often they made extravagant claims with respect to their talents and the painlessness of their operations, and they advertised these claims extensively in newspapers and handbills. Dentists in this group were not viewed as respectable by formally trained dentists, and they could not claim middle-class status.
