Dr. Larry Cogar, Dentist

Larry is the original dentist of Brightside Dental Care. After graduating from the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Dentistry, he opened the first practice in Portage with his wife Della. Together they successfully grew the single-dentist practice into thriving offices, filled with friends, family, and incredible staff. Since slowing down from clinical practice, Larry enjoys his role as a Founding Partner with Scott in a new company that focuses on Brightside’s growth. As part of that role, he oversees the Portage and Gladstone locations.

When Larry takes his dental mask off, you can find him relaxing at Lake of the Woods. There’s nothing he likes more than mornings on the deck with a cup of coffee and a good book. Larry’s an avid salmon and walleye fisherman, and an amazing cook. He also barbeques year round; rain or shine, in -30 temperatures, and even during snowstorms.
