Jamal Latif, DDS, MPH

Dr. Jamal Latif was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. He grew up in the restaurant industry working alongside his father, a chef. In 2008, they opened Lavash Cafe, a Mediterranean restaurant in Clintonville. Lavash Cafe has been critically acclaimed and a fixture of the Columbus restaurant scene. Through his work from a young age in the service industry, Dr. Jamal was able to learn about the art of providing excellent hospitality to customers with a caring and personal touch.

Dr. Jamal went to Ohio State University for his undergraduate studies. There he discovered his love of science and service, and that both could be combined through the practice of dentistry. After graduation from Ohio State with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology in 2012, he pursued further training at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Public Health. At Pitt, he was able to dive into the larger context of the U.S. health care system and gained analytic skills to complement his eventual training in dentistry. He earned a Master of Public Health with an environmental and occupational health specialization.

Dr. Jamal returned to Columbus for clinical training at Ohio State’s College of Dentistry. There, he learned how to provide compassionate and clinically excellent care to address the needs of his patients. In 2019, he completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

He is a member of the Ohio Dental Association (ODA) and the American Dental Association (ADA). Dr. Jamal is also an avid community leader in Clintonville, where he has been able to use his platform as a restaurant owner for community service on a wide range of issues, from refugee and immigrant needs to addressing food scarcity.

Darlene

Office Manger

Darlene has been with Dr. Latif for over 30 years, sharing the practice vision and passion for providing outstanding patient care. She will always greet you with a warm, friendly smile and, on occasion, freshly baked cookies from our kitchen! Our patients appreciate her knowledge of dentistry and insurance coverage, as well as her ability to answer any questions they may have regarding finances and payment options. She is the one you can expect to ask how your family is doing and how your last vacation went. If you bring a baby or toddler with you to your appointment, beware; she will most likely snatch them up before you have a chance to sit down. She will hold, entertain and spoil them the entire time you’re in the dental chair!

Derya

Marketing Manager

Derya grew up all over the U.S. and Europe. She was randomly offered a job in a dental office while completing her English degree at OSU in 1999 and has been in dentistry since. Her role is mostly behind the scenes handling the marketing, advertising and online presence of the practice. She is high-energy, a bit quirky and will most likely hug you at one point or another – if you let her! Her favorite times involve family, friends, music, the outdoors and goofiness in general.

Emily B.

Patient Coordinator

Emily is a front desk coordinator here at Ohio Cosmetic Dentists. She enjoys working for Dr. Latif and has over 7 years of experience in the dental field. Emily attended Ohio Christian University in Circleville, OH. She is from a small town in southern Ohio and currently resides in New Albany with her husband, Cody. In her spare time, she enjoys painting, traveling and spending time with family. She also has a fantastic sense of style when she’s not in scrubs!

Faith

Dental Hygienist

Faith has been with Dr. Latif for 16 of her 30 years as a hygienist! After attending the University of Dayton, she joined the Army on active duty for three years and was a reservist for another seven years. She is the health nut of our practice so you won’t see her eating any of Darlene’s fresh baked cookies. She’d rather be polishing your teeth, anyway. Take note: if you are, or have been, in any way affiliated with the military, don’t be surprised to hear a “HOOAH” from Faith on your way out.

Emily A.

Dental Hygienist

Emily has been practicing as a dental hygienist since May of 2017. She graduated from Stark State College with a degree in Dental Hygiene and Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary (EFDA). She has been part of our practice since January of 2019. Her favorite part about being a dental hygienist is seeing her patients leave with a happy, healthy, confident smile. In her free time, she enjoys being with her family, friends and her cat, Melvin (who she has a slight obsession with).

Tiffany

Lead Dental Assistant

Tiffany joined Dr. Latif in 2007 and has since become certified in dental assisting, dental sealants and coronal polishing. Dentistry is what she was made for and she has a true knack for the skill and the attention to detail it takes to be a great assistant. She loves being a part of the start-to-finish process of dental treatment and being able to see her patients’ boost in confidence when everything is completed. She is always working towards being the best person she can be, whether it be through her love of church, her coworkers or her family. She will calm your nerves and make you feel like family before you know it!

Jordan

Dental Assistant

Jordan grew up in Amanda, Ohio and has been with us since 2015. Her favorite part of dentistry is seeing the results after her patients have completed cosmetic dental treatment. She is passionate about her work, the patients and providing the highest quality of care. In her spare time, Jordan enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and son hunting, camping, hiking – this girl does it all!

Jeanna

Dental Assistant

Jeanna is from the Mount Vernon area and started with Dr. Latif in February of 2016. Her favorite part of dentistry is connecting with patients, especially the children, and seeing their reactions after a great dental visit. She possesses the gift of humor, so she will brighten your day no matter what mood you happen to be in when you arrive.

When she’s not entertaining her patients and the office staff, she is most likely spending time with her two young sons making crafts and just enjoying life!

Hind

Dental Assistant

Hind is the newest addition to our practice. She graduated from the Columbus Academy of Dental Assisting in December of 2018 and joined us the following February. She moved to the U.S. from Iraq in 2012 with her husband and three very active boys. She loves spending time with her family going to the movies, the YMCA or the library. She may come off as shy at first, but always has a smile on her face and is always striving to learn new procedures and techniques. You will always feel comforted and taken care of with her at your side.
