Dr. Foster , born in Chicago, moved to Dallas, Texas when he was two years old considers himself a native born Texan since his earliest memories involve Texas. (He is crazy about the Cowboys and the Longhorns! Hook ‘em horns!! ) His family moved during his college years to Georgia and enrolled in Oglethorpe University, transferred and graduated from Georgia State University in 1968.
Dr. Foster made his way to the Medical College of Georgia, now named The Georgia Health Sciences University College of Dental Medicine, where he had the honor of graduating in 1973 as a member of the Dental School’s first dental class. He opened his first office in Smyrna, Georgia. After five years, he moved his practice to the East Cobb area where he has been ever since.
As an active Emeritus member of the American Dental Association, the Georgia Dental Association, the Northwest District Dental Society, as well as the Academy of General Dentistry and the Georgia Academy of General Dentistry, Dr. Foster recognizes that continuing education is a must in this ever changing field of dentistry. He travels to most of the major conventions taking classes in various areas of his field. Many times the entire office attends.
Because of his extensive knowledge in restoration of implants, Dr. Foster has been inducted as a member of the American Society of Implant Reconstructive Dentistry. Many dentists and surgeons will provide you with implants. However, most do not work or train together. Fewer than 15% of dentists perform five or more implants a year. Of these, only a few are selected for membership in ASIRD. Membership in the Society is by invitation only and restricted to dentists who meet this level of experience. ASIRD member teams recognize optimal outcomes are the result of dentists working closely together with their surgeon to provide patients with a highly coordinated case treatment
The advances in dentistry and the technologies that have come about in the last 50 years are fascinating and there are new ones every day.
It is this commitment to excellence that was recognized by his peers and thus earned Dr. Foster the award from Atlanta Magazine as one of the Top Dentists in the Atlanta Area.
