Meet Dr. Diana Latinow
Thank you for your interest in our dental office. My team and I truly believe that high-quality dentistry can be done in a small town setting and we are committed to providing the best possible care for you and your family.
Our lives are surrounded by electronics and technology and in most instances there is lack of face-to-face communication. In our office we combine the modern technology with the old-fashion human relations and values. I would like my patients to feel that in front of them is a human being listening to their concerns with passion and understanding.
I have practiced for more than 20 years but still invest my time in continuing education because I believe that the dental field is a lifetime learning curve. My goal is to provide you with high quality, comfortable dental care with long lasting results.
I graduated with Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the Medical Academy, Bulgaria. After a few years of private practice in Europe, I attended University of Washington in Seattle and received Master of Science in Dentistry degree. My education and experience allow me to benefit from both the European and North American dental philosophies which helped me in achieving exceptional results for my patients during the years.
I live on a small ranch in the Southern Black Hills. My husband and my three children enjoy horseback riding, hiking, off-road driving and every aspect of the outdoor activities in our area. I speak Spanish, Bulgarian, Russian and English.
