Katie Foster, DMD
Hi! I am Dr. Katie Foster. I was born and raised in Northern Nevada- Reno to be exact. I moved to Thousand Oaks, California, in 2005 where I attended California Lutheran University and graduated with distinction receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in biology. While in college, I also studied the classical violin, was part of my schools orchestral program and was a competitive swimmer.
I received my dental degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where I realized early on my passion for working with and treating children. Following my dental training, I pursued my pediatric residency at Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry in association with the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. I obtained extensive knowledge regarding clinical pediatric dentistry, dental emergencies as well as the skills to care for special needs and medically compromised patients.
I love nothing more than spending time with my wonderful husband, Josh and our two sweet children, Luke and Ella. When I am not working or chasing a toddler around, I love to cook (not a great baker though), stay active in the gym, try new restaurants and travel.
I am a board certified pediatric Dentist and an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
I know that I have the best job in the whole world and I LOVE serving the amazing patients of Windsor Pediatric Dentistry!
