We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I have been working at our office since I entered the field in 1987. I look forward to each day at the office assisting Dr. Foster with treatments and doing lab work. My favorite part of my work is the kids. I enjoy making them feel good about their smiles and comfortable while in our office. Dr. Foster is a genuinely kind person who makes our work fun. He genuinely cares for our patients and the quality of work he provides.
I am happily married to a great man named David, and I have three wonderful children named Ashley, Whitney, and Dylan. I enjoy spending my free time with them. I also like to play sports and fish.
I entered the field of oral healthcare as a dental assistant in 1982. I became an orthodontic clinical assistant in 1989 after finishing my formal education. I use my experience all the time to provide the best care possible. I could not be happier than I am working in this field. It is very rewarding to establish relationships with our patients and their family members. I love showing them how dedicated we are to creating truly beautiful smiles.
I have been married for over 25 years. I have three wonderful children, one son-in-law, and a granddaughter. I love spending time with my family, especially when I can spoil my granddaughter. I also enjoy spending time with friends and in the great outdoors traveling, camping, and boating.
Clinical and Lab Technician Assistant
I recently joined our team in 2010, but I brought over 18 years of experience in orthodontics to the office. It was a great choice coming to Dr. Foster's team. He is pleasant and fun to work for. I really value a positive attitude and love to laugh. Dr. Foster always walks through the door with a smile on his face and provides excellent care. It is a pleasure knowing that I am going to work with an incredible doctor who really knows his craft. I love being a part of the creation of beautiful smiles, which happen with every treatment at our office.
I have two beautiful children named Jordan and Lexi, a great boyfriend named Donny, and an active dog named Nova. I enjoy backpacking, camping, riding horses, skiing, and working out at the local gym.
I have been working in orthodontics for over 38 years, 28 of which I've spent at our office in Helena. I feel very fortunate to be in this field. I truly enjoy my work making retainers and other intricate appliances and assisting in other areas of the office. I take a lot of pride in my work and strive to do my part in helping our patients achieve the best smiles of their lives. I also enjoy working with the staff and Dr. Foster. I have a great respect and admiration for the quality of work they provide.
I have been a proud employee of Helena Orthodontics for three years now. I do many things as a receptionist, but throughout them all, my favorite part is always interacting with our patients and their wonderful families. I am sure to tell them how great Dr. Foster is. He creates truly beautiful smiles and is concerned for the person behind the smile. Our team provides a great environment with thoughtful care. I look forward to work every day because of my excellent co-workers. They inspire me to provide the best care possible.
I have a great family of my own. I am happily married to my husband, Derek, and have three beautiful children named Forest, Jewel, and Eli. We enjoy spending our free time out taking in nature. In winter, we travel Montana to different ski hills. In the summer, we like to be out on the water soaking up the sun and hopefully, catching a lot of fish.
Clinical Assistant/ Lab Technician
I joined our office in 2006, but have been in the field of orthodontics since 1994. I love the work and seeing all the amazing changes that it makes in our patients' lives. I keep this in mind while assisting Dr. Foster chairside and creating one of a kind retainers in the lab. Listening to the patients' fun stories especially those told by the kids is always a bonus. Dr. Foster is both a great guy and an excellent orthodontist. He, the staff, and our wonderful patients make me feel fortunate to be working at such a great practice.
In my spare time I love hiking, fishing and hunting with my fun loving husband and very sweet black lab “Wilma”.
Front Desk/ Financial Coordinator
I have over 22 years of experience in the orthodontic office setting and joined Helena Orthodontics in 2011. My favorite part of my job is the patients and watching the beautiful smiles that are created here. I find that very rewarding, in addition to building relationships with all the families I meet. I feel very fortunate to be part of such an amazing orthodontic team.
I am married to my wonderful husband, Dave, and we have two sons, Michael and Daniel, and a daughter named Taylor. As a family, we love to be outdoors; during the spring and summer you can find us camping or boating at the lake. I also love to travel.
