Meet the Doctors

Dr. Colin Lathrop
For several years, Dr. Colin Lathrop has honed his skills working as a dentist in the Houston area. His lifelong patients appreciate his friendly chairside manner and high level of skill in all aspects of dentistry. In June of 2013, Houstonia Magazine named Dr. Lathrop one of Houston’s top dentists. In December of 2013, Dr. Lathrop opened his own, brand-new dental practice in Katy, TX. He chose the Katy area because, despite its bustling growth, it still retains a friendly, small-town feel and unparalleled quality of life. Dr Lathrop teaches implant surgery at Implant Pathway in Az to doctors from all over the world. As an Invisalign faculty member, Dr Lathrop lectures to dentists on the benefits of Invisalign as well as complex case execution combining dental implants and cosmetic treatments along with clear aligner therapy.
Dr. Lathrop’s philosophy is to treat every patient as an individual, not as just a dental health case. He is passionate about preventing problems before they occur, especially for children who are still developing their teeth and oral structures. For instance, he offers early orthodontic intervention to minimize children’s need for orthodontics later in life.

Dr. Martin Youngs
Dr. Martin Youngs graduated from Texas Tech University with cum laude honors and a BS in biology in 2003. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from UT Health Houston School of Dentistry in 2009 and completed a residency in an Advanced Education in General Dentistry program in 2010 at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque, NM. Dr. Youngs began his career in private practice in Houston in August 2010.
Dr. Youngs is a member of Texas Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology and the Academy of General Dentistry. He received an associate fellowship from the Academy of GP Orthodontics in 2014 and earned the Fellowship Award from the Academy of General Dentistry in July of 2016. Dr. Youngs is the past president of the North Houston Dental Study Group (2014 - 2015). He is committed to continuing education and takes many advanced courses each year to enhance his skills to better serve the dental care needs of his patients and provide them with a gentle and comfortable dental experience.
When not practicing dentistry, Martin spends his time with his wife, raising their two children. He is an avid fan of Texas Tech sports and enjoys watching movies and spending time outdoors.

Our Patients Say

It was my first time at Lathrop although my family has been going there for a while.  This was the best dentist experience I have ever had, everyone was so professional and friendly and organized.

Amazing staff and doctors!! Could not have asked for a better experience at the dentist. I also came in before Halloween weekend and the staff was dressed up so cute! I love seeing this kind of spirit and camaraderie in an office. Knowledgeable, friendly and makes you comfortable on your first time. 10/10 would recommend.
