Most of his professional career centered around a vibrant patient-centered practice in Connecticut. Dr. Latvis and his wife (Diane) of 28 years, have an adult daughter (Jaclyn) who is in graduate school and a Havanese puppy named Duke. Besides dentistry, Dr. Latvis enjoys time with family, home projects and fishing. Dr. Latvis is passionate about providing compassionate and comprehensive patient care.
"I’ve never had a bad experience here. As soon as you walk through the door they welcome you by name. They are very patient and kind. I am very nervous when I go to the dentist, but as soon as you get in the chair the nurses make you feel very comfortable and Dr. Mills will make you laugh. Dr. Mills has a great personality. Dr. Latvis is very charming and gracious and goes above and beyond. The whole staff here really makes you feel like family. I highly recommend them. I give the 5 stars, more if I could...."
"I had sedation dentistry done today and although I have a very low pain tolerance I’ve never been so pleased with the minimal pain I feel. You guys did a phenomenal job and Dr. Latvis and Dr. Mills, you two are incredible men! Thank you for making this surgery so comfortable for me. The entire staff at market common dentistry really goes above and beyond for their patients! Thanks guys!!!"
"So I am full timing in my RV all over the country and want to make sure I keep up with my pearly whites ;D... Well after looking all over the Myrtle Beach area I found Market Common Dentistry. Amanda was very patient and helpful in getting me into an appointment last minute before I left South Carolina. So much so that she called me back and moved my original appointment a few weeks out to the very next day! The day of my appointment I walked in and was greeted by Diane and Amanda who were welcoming and awesome. The office is really nice clean and put together. After a few minutes Christine my Hygienist came out to get me and brought me back to handle my cleaning. She was personable professional and on top of her game. I asked for a waterpik (which by the way is awesome) she didn't hesitate and said no problem. I have been to other establishments and they acted like it was a pain in the butt to break those out but for Christine and Market Common, it was no big deal :D. After the quick but thorough cleaning Dr. Latvis came in to check everything out including some other concerns I had. He was super patient, warm and I didn't feel rushed at all as he answered all my questions. After that Christine walked me out giving me some gnarly swag along the way including a sticker and toothbrush/toothpaste. At that point Diane took my payment and made sure I was happy and set up for the next city I'm in. (Also Carla checked if I had Insurance lol) This place is perfect if you're a resident here or just passing through, A+++"
"I really hate to go to the dentist & because of this fear, it has been at least 10 years since I’ve seen one. I’ve recently started having some major issues & had to make myself go in for treatment. The whole staff was awesome! From the time I entered the building I was treated with the utmost respect. Dr. Mills & Dr. Latvis were very thorough & never one time made me feel ashamed/embarrassed about my issues. Everyone was extremely professional, but very personable. I’m glad I chose MC Dentistry! Although I’m not looking forward to the months of treatment, I know I’m in great hands!!"
