dr_luke_foster

Dr. Luke Foster has wanted to be a dentist since he was 9 years old – he broke his two front teeth while sledding down a hill and his dentist turned a potentially scary experience into a positive one.  Ever since, he has wanted to help people in the same way.

A native of Traer, Iowa, Dr. Foster completed his undergraduate studies at Iowa State University, earning a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in Music (Piano).  He received his D.D.S. from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, graduated 3rd in his class, and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon honor society.  He also completed a clinical externship at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry in London, England.  He met his wife Sarah at the University of Iowa while she was finishing her violin performance degree.

Dr. Foster practiced for 6 years in New Richmond, Wisconsin before moving to Minnesota in 2012.  He has extensive experience working with patients who have anxiety associated with going to the dentist – Dr. Foster takes pride in treating patients in a comfortable, caring and gentle manner.

He enjoys music and plays the piano and organ at Wooddale Lutheran Church in St. Louis Park.  He also enjoys playing music with his wife and spending time with their three children, Mary Rose, Clara and Theodore.
