Dentist helped all who needed him
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Staff Reporter
When Doctor Surender WADEHRA arrived in Canada in the early 1970s, he was in for a cruel awakening.
The young dentist, like so many others before and after him, was tossed into a vicious cycle where his credentials went overlooked.
Instead, he found himself sweeping hair from the floor of a local salon.
Though many doubted he could be a dentist again, he was determined to prove them wrong. Gifted with a photographic memory and driven by a desire to make a difference, WADEHRA worked hard to pass the National Board Examinations required to practise dentistry in Canada.
In the next 30 years, he established a reputation in Toronto as a practitioner who opened his door to thousands of patients, including many who didn't have any money or coverage to pay.
WADEHRA, 66, died last month at Toronto's Saint_Joseph's Health Centre with his family by his side.
"The clinic wasn't about the money. It was about his desire to help," said son Manish, one of WADEHRA's three children.
"My father was the type of man that would be hard-pressed to turn anyone away from treatment regardless of them having coverage or not," he said. "Payment was always a secondary issue."
WADEHRA was born the fourth of seven children in Jammu in northern India on January 23, 1940. His father had served as a doctor in the Indian army and WADEHRA also put his medical skills to use in the military, serving in Punjab, India.
"He had great respect for his father and he wanted to do it to honour his family," said his son.
In 1971, WADEHRA married Raman MEHRA, with whom he had corresponded as Friends since she visited from Alberta.
"She came back and they had a whirlwind courtship of four to five days," their son said.
The pair was apart six months. In early 1972, he flew to be with his wife in Edmonton. They later moved to Toronto. WADEHRA also worked for many years as the dentist to the Indian High Commission. At the same time, he ran his own practice at Bloor and Dufferin Sts., helping more than 5,000 patients from 1978 to 2006. His son says he loved his multicultural surroundings.
"This was a sentiment close to my father's heart as he himself was an immigrant and enjoyed Canada's diversity."
Although he stayed in Canada, WADEHRA kept a home steeped in Indian culture.
He gave so many Bollywood films to visitors that his children nicknamed him "Indian Blockbuster."
