Dr. Kevin LathangueD.D.S.
Dr. Kevin Lathangue graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2004 with a Doctorate of Medical Dentistry (DMD). He has since developed several innovative strategies with specialists who currently work with Blue Ocean Dental Group including periodontist Dr. Tassos Irinakis and Mr. Mark O'neill - a certified CEREC Technician and cosmetic expert. Dr. Lathangue has also integrated a denture specialist in order to serve both our denture patients and our implants patients. Jim, our denture specialist, has over 45 years experience as a denturist.
In addition to dentistry, Dr. Lathangue has a keen interest in developing his current business model and, as a result, has opened several other practices on Vancouver Island in order to facilitate his "all specialists under one roof" business model. Needless to say, this model has been very well received by communities that would otherwise go without this caliber of specialists and service
Dr. Lathangue has continued his education by attending the University of Alberta where he acquired his Intravenous Sedation (IV) certification, which he incorporated into his practice model as one of the many specialties. Dr. Lathangue performs several varieties of minor oral surgery, including wisdom tooth removal and implant placement. He is an avid learner and has taken many courses from the renowned Dr. John Kois. In addition, he recently completed a yearlong implant course taught by Dr. Sascha Jovanovic in Santa Monica, CA.
When Dr. Lathangue is not engaged in the pursuit of dentistry, he likes to spend as much time as possible with his three wonderful children Kasey, Travis, and Kaya. Finally, Dr. Lathangue is a dedicated weight trainer who once held a junior world record as well as three Canadian records - he still finds time to weight train and compete in bodybuilding competitions.
