For several years, Dr. Colin Lathrop has honed his skills working as a dentist in the Houston area and built up a loyal clientele who appreciate his friendly chairside manner and outstanding skill in all aspects of dentistry. In June 2013, Houstonia Magazine even named him one of Houston’s top dentists. We all know what a huge city Houston is, so to be recognized as one of the city’s finest is quite an accomplishment!
In December 2013, Dr. Lathrop launched the biggest professional venture of his life. He opened his own, brand-new dental practice in Katy. When selecting where to establish roots, he chose the Katy area because its bustling growth offers a wealth of conveniences and amenities for his growing family, yet also because it still retains a friendly, small-town feel and unparalleled quality of life. Simply put, Dr. Lathrop is excited to serve Katy-Fulshear area residents’ dental needs. You can expect to see his biggest cheerleaders — his wife, Raven (who is expecting the couple’s third child) and two children make appearances around the office from time to time.
For new and future patients who are unfamiliar with Dr. Lathrop’s approach, his philosophy is to treat each patient individually — not according to a cookie-cutter “one-size-fits-all” dental regimen. He is passionate about preventing problems before they occur. For children, he often prescribes dental sealants to keep cavities at bay. And he offers early orthodontic intervention in an attempt to minimize kids’ needs for orthodontics later in life.
Of course, despite even the best efforts, dental problems inevitably still rear their ugly heads. Take comfort in knowing that Dr. Lathrop is skilled at transforming problem teeth and turning them into natural-looking, functional teeth again. He takes a holistic approach to dental care, so whenever possible he uses natural-looking composite materials that will blend well with the other teeth, rather than mar a patient’s smile.
Regardless of what dental procedures he is doing, Dr. Lathrop always strives finish them efficiently so that busy patients can get back to their regular routines.
While Lathrop Dental Center patients have access to all of the typical dental procedures they would expect to see in a dentist’s office, they also have access to procedures not offered by other dentists. Namely, Botox! Over the past decades, researchers continue to identify new uses for Botox, which helps alleviate migraine headaches, excessive sweating, muscle spasms, eye problems, and much more. In dentistry, Dr. Lathrop uses Botox to treat the painful symptoms of TMJ disorder and bruxism.
If you want to put your best face forward to the world, a healthy smile is a big part of achieving that. To truly look your best, your teeth and your smile should harmonize and balance well with all of your facial features. Unfortunately, common issues such as bruxism or TMJ disorder can affect the health and appearance of your smile. With Botox, the Lathrop Dental Center offers a unique treatment for both of these common dental disorders. Whether you need preventive dental care, extensive dental work, or something in between, Lathrop Dental Center creates beautiful smiles by improving your teeth and overall smile health.
