Amalia Assur (1803–1889) was the first female dentist in Sweden.
Amalia Assur was the daughter of the Jewish dentist Joel Assur, "one of the first dentists in Sweden". Assur was active as her father's assistant, and her brother was also a dentist. In 1852, she was given special permission from the Royal Board of Health (Kongl. Sundhetskollegiets) to practice independently, despite the fact that the profession was not legally opened to women until 1861. This permission was given after she had been reported for practicing without a license. She was active in Stockholm. Assur seems to have been unmarried, as she was referred to as "mamsell" in the documents.
After the dentistry profession in general was legally opened to women in 1861, Rosalie Fougelberg became the first female dentist to be officially licensed.
