M. A. McIntyre, D.D.S.

Dr. M. A. McIntyre, a highly trained and therefore most efficient member of the dental profession, practicing successfully at Edmonton, was born in Ontario, in 1887, and is a son of Duncan and Mary (O'Hara) McIntyre, who were natives of the north of Scotland and of Ontario, respectively. They now make their home in Ontario, where for many years the father followed farming but is now living retired, having won a substantial measure of success in the conduct of his business affairs. He and his wife are members of the Presbyterian church, in which he has served as an elder for the past thirty years and he is also an Orangeman. Politically his support is given to the Conservative party and he has served as a member of the council, while at the present time he is filling the offices of assessor and school trustee. He keeps well informed on the questions and issues of the day and gives his allegiance to all those plans and measures which he believes will prove of public benefit.

Al. A. McIntyre was the third in order of birth in a family of four children and acquired his early education in the Forest high school, from which he was graduated with the class of 1903. He then took up the profession of teaching, which he followed successfully for five years, imparting readily and clearly to others the knowledge that he had acquired. In this way he earned the money that enabled him to pursue his dental course and he also added to his exchequer by working in various other ways. In 1907 he matriculated in the Royal Dental College, from which he was graduated with the class of 1912. He began practice at Nelson, British Columbia, and in 1913 came to Edmonton, where he has practiced continuously since, making steady advancement in his chosen calling. Ambitious to render his efforts of the highest possible service he has taken dental postgraduate courses, including the Smith course in oral surgery and special training ill work. He continues in the general practice of dentistry to which he devotes practically his entire time and his practice is now very extensive.

In 1914 Dr. McIntyre was married to Miss Myrtle Frost, who was born ill Ontario, and educated in the high school there, after which she taught school for six years. Dr. and Mrs. McIntyre have two children: Donald and Jeanne, the latter five years of age. The parents are members of the Presbyterian church and Dr. McIntyre is a thirty-second degree Mason. He turns to hunting for his recreation and is one of the original and genial members of the Gun Club. While his ability in the practice of dentistry has gained him high professional standing, his social qualities have won him wide popularity among his many friends.
