About us


In 1919, Dr. Gaulin Sr. opened a small practice in the Ottawa market. In approximately 1954, his son, Dr. Jacques Gaulin, took over his father’s clinic. Dr. Gaulin Jr., a remarkable clinician, did not shy away from any complex cases. His perfectionism and attention to detail earned him an enviable reputation of problem solving. Approaching retirement, Dr. Gaulin Jr. called the University of Waterloo every spring inquiring about new graduates that would be interested in taking over his clinic along with his challenging cases. In 1989, a name came up: Josée Martineau. He called the fourth year resident and asked for a meeting. Josée explained that coming from a small town, practicing in the Ottawa market was not first on her list. She reluctantly agreed to work alongside Dr. Gaulin Jr. in Ottawa for a few months. The rest is history! Dr. Martineau thoroughly enjoyed practicing with Dr. Gaulin Jr. The complexity of his cases and his meticulously maintained charts won her over. The practice was officially transferred to Dr. Martineau in 1990.
