Dr. Latner graduated from the Washington University-St. Louis, School of Dental Medicine and completed a two year residency in pediatric dentistry at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Dr. Latner is one of fewer than 10 dentists who've achieved both accreditation in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry. Also, he currently serves on the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and is a clinical assistant professor at the UCLA School of Dentistry, lectures regularly on esthetic dentistry, and has authored an article published in the Journal of the American College of Dentists. Fittingly, the sports-loving dentist was officially recognized by the Sports Dentistry Commission for the World Cup in 1994, and was a presenter at the 1986 Academy for Sports Dentistry National Symposium.

When away from the office, Dr. Latner spends time with his beautiful wife, Nora, and his black lab, Shaina. Whenever they can, they steal away to the mountains for some rejuvenating snow skiing.
