About Foote Orthodontics

Dr. Foote is a native of Ardmore, PA. Following graduation from Lower Merion High School, she dedicated ten years to higher education at the University of Pennsylvania where she received a Bachelor's degree in Biology, followed by a D.M.D. degree and Certificate of Orthodontics from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Dental Medicine.

Since then, she has combined full time clinical practice with part-time teaching commitments. Dr. Foote was a Clinical Affiliate of Orthodontics with the post doctoral program of orthodontics at the University of Pennsylvania where she taught orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning to the residents of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry of the University of Pennsylvania. The focus of her teaching responsibilities has been early, interceptive orthodontic care for children. She has completed clinical research on orthopaedic management of young adolescent orthodontic problems.

Dr. Foote utilizes the latest technological advances in the industry, such as Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, and ceramic braces, along with digital imaging and advanced computer graphics, to ensure that you receive the most effective and comfortable care possible.

  • American Dental Association
  • American Association of Orthodontics
  • Academy of Stomatology (serving as New Member Chair)

Dr. Foote feels that she has assembled a team that is unmatched in skill and service, and we treat all of our patients like our own family. We attend continuing education lectures across the country as a team, and we have taught other local offices many aspects of clinical and patient care. No question will go unanswered, and Dr. Foote makes it a priority to spend time with every patient at every appointment. Our personalized care is the focus of our practice, and as soon as you join us in our office you will realize that you are part of our patient family.
