Dr. Pete Foster has purchased a practice at Family Dentistry, located on Route 17, Hayes. Other dentists with separate practices at Family Dentistry are Drs. Joseph Lombard and Nathan Vogt.
Before acquiring his practice, Foster was an employee of Family Dentistry for one year. He employs nine full- and part-time assistants (including Heather Edwards of Gloucester, a recently hired dental assistant) in his practice, with the office employing 25 people total.
Foster offers general dentistry services for ages three to senior citizens. He does routine exams, cleaning, makes impressions for bridges and crowns (made at an off-site lab), and makes referrals for specialty dental work like orthodontics and periodontics. The practice has modern dental and diagnostic equipment and digital x-ray, Foster said.
