Santa Rosa cosmetic dentist Gary Latham, D.D.S., has been serving the families of Windsor, Rohnert Park, and the entire Sonoma County with friendly, top-of-the-line dental care since 1977. Dr. Latham is dedicated to providing consistent, high quality family dentistry, cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry, and time and energy to the community at large.
Dr. Latham was raised in Walnut Creek, California, received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Oregon, and earned his degree in dentistry at the Northwestern University in Chicago in 1975. After two years in the Navy, Dr. Latham decided on Sonoma County, specifically Santa Rosa, to begin his practice as a family and cosmetic dentist. Ever since, he has excelled in both areas of dentistry and gained the respect of patients and colleagues throughout the region.
As a family dentist, Dr. Latham is proud to have earned the trust of his patients early on, and to have the honor of continuing to treat their children’s children with the same steady, consistent care at his office in Santa Rosa. As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Latham has dedicated himself to rigorous training (with double the continuing education requirements required by the state), including the prestigious postgraduate program at the UCLA Center for Esthetic Dentistry. In addition, Dr. Latham always uses the West Coast’s finest dental laboratories, and his current office staff is one of the most experienced, professional, and well-respected groups he has assembled at his Santa Rosa cosmetic dentistry practice over the past 25 years.
Professionally, Dr. Latham has been recognized by his colleagues, including other top cosmetic dentists in Rohnert Park, Windsor, Santa Rosa, and the rest of Sonoma County, for his dedication to excellence. In fact, through the support of his peers, Dr. Latham has represented the Dentists of Lake, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties in all elected positions of the Redwood Empire Dental Society, including the Presidency from 1993-94, and he was selected as a member of the prestigious Pierre Fauchard Academy. In addition, Dr. Latham has just recently retired from a six-year term representing all three of the above counties as their Trustee to the California Dental Association.
Dr. Latham is a family and cosmetic dentist who believes in organized dentistry. For this reason, he has belonged to (and still belongs to) numerous excellent professional organizations over the years, including the Craniomandibular Institute, the Academy of Orofacial Pain, the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Seattle Study Club, the Wine Country Study Club, the California Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. There are few cosmetic dentists in the Windsor and Santa Rosa areas that have amassed Dr. Gary Latham’s long list of affiliations and credentials.
In addition to his profession as a dedicated family and cosmetic dentist in Santa Rosa near Windsor, Rohnert Park, and surrounding communities, Dr. Latham has a long history of giving his time and talents outside his practice as well. He was heavily involved with the Active 20-30 Club #50 for many years and served in all elected positions, including the presidency. Dr. Latham also served several terms on the Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, and he chaired that "Good Morning Santa Rosa" committee. Perhaps most significantly, Dr. Latham coached his boys and other Santa Rosa youth in soccer, basketball, and baseball over the years, and he has recently resumed such activities with his daughter Natalie.
Dr. Latham is proud to present himself as a studied, skilled, and caring family and cosmetic dentist to the communities of Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, and Windsor.
