The Doctors

Dr. Laryssa Caris

It is often said that a DENTIST is a finely balanced combination of a Doctor, an ENgineer and an arTIST, and if you’ve ever seen Dr. Caris work, you would know that this is true.

Having grown up in Ottawa, Dr. Caris completed her dental degree at the University of Western Ontario, and was eager to continue developing her passion for dentistry in her home town. She has been working with the incredible team at Conroy Dental Centre since 2014 and feels that this office truly is her dental home. Dr. Caris, a constant learner, actively participates in ongoing continuing education, completing courses, seminars and training in all facets of dentistry- keeping her on the leading edge.  Dr. Caris aims to educate and empower her patients through active listening, communication and attention to detail; encouraging active discussion about their current oral health and what can be done to make it even better!

When not in the office, Dr. Caris can be found enjoying time with her husband and two young boys, watching movies, dancing, cooking up a storm (but not being very good at washing dishes), and spending time outdoors.

Dr. Frédéric Lê

When he was accepted to Laval University for his dental studies, Dr. Frédéric Lê knew without a doubt in his mind that he wanted to return to Ottawa to practice. Despite being born in Montreal; he considers Ottawa as the city that nurtured him in to becoming the person that he is today.

He is methodical and attentive to details, a skill that he acquired when he was completing his Bachelor of Science in Biopharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Ottawa. This quality allows him to be thorough during dental treatments, and to develop his passion in photography and cooking.

Dr. Lê is a great communicator and will establish a relationship of trust between the patient and himself. He will take the time to listen to the patient’s need and explain the best possible treatment plan so that the patient can make the most informed decision. Since his graduation in 2013, Dr. Lê actively participates in continuing education courses in various fields of dentistry so that he can provide the highest level of care to his patients.

Outside of office hours, Dr. Lê practices many extreme sports such as “changing diapers one handed with a wiggling baby”, and mentally challenging games such as “negotiating bedtime hours and stories”.
