Welcome

Clarkston Family Dental is committed to providing excellence in family dentistry to meet the needs of today's patients in a family-oriented, non-clinic atmosphere. From preventative and restorative dental procedures to cosmetic smile makeovers, Clarkston Family Dental is committed to your independent dental health by offering personalized care in our private treatment rooms.

Clarkston Family Dental has been serving the community for over 30 years! Dr. Foster came to the office as an associate dental provider after graduating from the University of Detroit-Mercy in 1997. After spending five years as an associate doctor, he purchased the dental practice and became the Primary Provider. Today, the practice is thriving with thousands of patients and a large team of accommodating employees. Dr. Foster and his staff are committed to providing quality dental care and exceptional services to their patients- all at a reasonable cost.

From first contact with Clarkston Family Dental, our doctors and staff are committed to your individual attention and strive to provide personalized dental health care tailored to your needs and goals. Your health and comfort are our top priorities, and we do what it takes to help every patient understand their symptoms and treatment options in a relaxed office setting.

We have developed this informational website as an extension of our practice to serve as a convenient and educational resource for our patients. This website provides you with an overview of our practice and the field of dentistry. We offer a wide range of dentistry services including dental implants and veneers. As you navigate the site, you'll find information about Clarkston Family Dental's practice philosophy, staff, office location, insurance policies, and appointment scheduling procedures. Please browse the site at your convenience and feel free to contact us with any questions. You can also request an appointment by clicking here.

You'll find valuable information on this website about dental problems, diagnosis and treatment. We believe that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions about their health and well-being; therefore, we encourage you to review this information to help you understand any health concerns you may face.

We are proud to say that our office has been actively volunteering in our surrounding communities. Review our Volunteer Service page to see the activities we have participated in to give back to our community!
