Our patients say.

Amazing staff here, and very nice and comfortable accommodation. The Doctor is extremely nice and very helpful on needed procedures and where to get them done. The staff from the front desk to the nurses and assistants are fabulous and there isn’t a frown in the place, just pretty white smiling teeth.

“EXCEPTIONAL service! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. My interactions with the front desk staff to the Dentist was consistent in that everyone was professional, friendly and very helpful. Everything was explained to me in detail before any work was done and I was kept informed at every stage, even during my procedure. My understanding and comfort was a top priority and prioritized to the point where I had no follow up questions because they made everything crystal clear and broke down medical terminology into laymen’s terms. This is by far the best dental office experience I’ve ever had!”


“Highly recommend Lathrop Dental!  I have had horrible dental experiences in the past so was scared to go, but everyone there was AWESOME!  The hygienist and Dr were so patient and understanding and explained everything to me.  They are our new family dentist!!”

“From the time I walked through the front door, until I left, I encountered friendly smiling staff. My initial visit was very thorough, more so than I have ever experienced at a dental office. The equipment deployed is state of art. My hygienist, Shannon, did an excellent job and I am extremely impressed with Dr. Lathrop.  This was a pleasant experience and I highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking a superior level of dental care. Update:  Starting my second year at Lathrop Dental Center and couldn’t be happier! 2022 Update:  I remain very pleased with Lathrop Dental. The staff is first class and always makes me feel valued as a patient. Shannon is my favorite hygienist of all time.”

“Our family has been a loyal customers at Lathrop Dental Center for 4 years now. We had bad experience with our dentist so I was searching on Google for another one. I found Lathrop Dental on Google and the reviews were all 5, so decided to give it a try. The office doesn't disappoint us. The office staffs and doctors are super friendly and knowledgeable.They are very straight forward about the treatments and payments. They treat us like family. We love every single minutes that we are there. Highly recommend!”

Cody is amazing! My two sons, 6 and 4, one of whom is on the spectrum, LOVE her. She creates such a positive experience that they are actually excited about getting their teeth cleaned. This practice is a blessing, and I’m grateful they are so close. Everyone is kind, happy, willing and (and at least appear) unbothered to interact with and encourage kids. We’ll be patients as long as they’re around. Thanks for going the extra mile!
