A Brampton street has been renamed in the memory of Dr. Cherilyn Nicole Sterling-Case, honouring the late dentist and her contributions to the city.

The City of Brampton unveiled a street sign commemorating Elizabeth St. North as “Dr. Cherilyn’s Place” at an honorary renaming ceremony on Sunday (Oct. 16).

Growing up in Brampton, Sterling-Case attended York University in Toronto and continued her education at Ohio State University and the University of Pittsburgh, where she graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery.

She moved back to Brampton in 2002 and started her dental career and was one of the first Black female dentists in the city.

Sterling-Case died in August of 2020, and is being remembered as a stalwart supporter of many causes in the community, including the Brampton Basketball Association and The Rose Brampton.
