Dr Lisa Fruitman, B.Sc.(H.), D.D.S.
Born in Ottawa, Dr. Fruitman started accompanying her father on his visits to his dental office from the time she was a toddler. From playing at the front desk to eventually becoming his part-time assistant in the summers, Dr Fruitman was exposed to dentistry from an early age. It was her father’s love of helping people that inspired her to pursue a dental career herself. She graduated with an honours undergraduate degree in science from McGill University and then completed her dental degree at the University of Toronto. Dr. Fruitman practiced with her father in Ottawa for a number of years before marrying a Torontonian, and now she is proud to say that her father visits regularly to work in her clinic in Toronto (and to visit his grandchildren). Her years as a camp counselor, math tutor and certified ski instructor has enhanced her ability to connect with children and make them feel at ease. Much like Dr Fruitman did, her own children now spend time “at mom’s office”.
