FoltzA native of Southern California, Dr. Foltz attended the University of Southern California for both his undergraduate and graduate studies, graduating first in his class from the prestigious USC School of Dentistry in 1977. With multiple academic awards to his credit, Dr. Foltz pursued his career in oral maxillofacial surgery by completing his residency at the Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. Two years later, he was Board Certified by the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.

Recognizing the life-changing impact of modern implant dentistry for patients, Dr. Foltz and his partner founded the Center for Restorative Oral Surgery at Valley Presbyterian Hospital, the first implant center of its kind in the United States.

His commitment to education in this unique field of dentistry continues today with the recent establishment of the Center for Advanced Education by Dr. Foltz and his partner.
