Dr. Latsilnik’s ambition to pursue a career in the health professions began early. Growing up in the Russian Federation where education is highly competitive he embarked on a career path requiring two elements for success: high grades and superior motivation. His resolve earned him a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the prestigious St. Petersburg Medical/Dental University in 1999.
A passion for working with youngsters and adolescent patients initiated a second round of academics and Dr. Latsilnik returned to university for post-graduate studies in Pediatric Dentistry. He completed the Postgraduate Residency Program at the Medical Academy for Postgraduate Studies, St. Petersburg and practiced as a pediatric specialist until he and his family moved to the United States.
Aspiring to further broaden his education Dr. Latsilnik was accepted for courses to further his education and in 2011 he earned an advanced degree as Doctor of Dental Medicine, D.M.D., completing studies at the Goldman School of Dental Medicine, Boston University.
