Dr. Catherine Foote, a Lower Merion high school grad who boasts an undergraduate and medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania, is a third generation dentist.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. So, there is no better time to catch up with one of the Main Line’s most beloved orthodontists—Bryn Mawr’s Dr. Catherine Foote. Foote, an Ardmore native, Lower Merion grad and third generation dentist holds an undergraduate degree from The University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Foote dedicated ten years to higher education at the University of Pennsylvania where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology followed by a DMD degree and Certificate of Orthodontics. In her state of the art, newly renovated office across from Bryn Mawr Hospital, Dr. Foote treats both children and adults, offering traditional braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign, and take-home whitening.

Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. NCDHM messages and materials have reached millions of people in communities across the country. According to the ADA, developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.

Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.

Foote Orthodontics’ mission is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care in a comfortable and welcoming environment where patients are treated with excellence personally and clinically. Dr. Foote deals with some of the most common issues parents and prepubescent children face and she advises that the earlier a patient is seen, the better a plan can be put in place for proper care. “Interceptive orthodontics helps to take advantage of growth. By evaluating the bite when there are still baby teeth, we can deal with any issues and plan accordingly from there.”

AroundMainLine.com: What is the common age or scenario where a parent would bring a child into your practice for the first time?

Dr. Foote: The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children be screened at the age of seven to evaluate for issues such as thumb sucking, cross bites, spacing, or crowding. Generally, between the ages of 8-10 years old is an ideal time to begin interceptive orthodontics, if necessary. This is often referred to as Phase I treatment.

AML: Thumb sucking with an older child, I would assume, is a sensitive issue. How do you approach the parent and child to deal with the habit?

DF: I find that thumb sucking is a very pacifying behavior for young children. I don’t think parents have to be too worried about it until it starts to affect permanent dental structure. With time, consistent thumb sucking will affect the shape of the palate and can flare the upper teeth. School age children should not be sucking their thumb all day. If that is the case, there should be an evaluation for some type of orthodontic intervention, which is typically around 7-8 years old.

AML: You are a female in a medical field primarily dominated by men. But, considering your background it’s not so surprising since you come from a big dental family and are the oldest of seven!

DF: My grandfather was a dentist, my father is an oral surgeon, as is my uncle, and two other uncles are orthodontists. That is all on my mother’s side of the family. My father’s brother is a general dentist. I was lucky enough to attend dental school at Penn with two of my cousins, and one of my brothers is in dental school now. Dentistry is a great profession, especially for women, and I am beyond lucky and blessed to be fortunate enough to do what I do!

AML: I’ve mentioned you to a few people lately, and it was evident to me you have a stellar reputation across the Main Line. What makes your practice such a success?

DF: I treat my patients as I would want to be treated. I feel like we are a very comfortable, caring office that is genuinely concerned with the best interests of the patient and giving them the attention that they need.

Dr. Foote’s office is located in the heart of Bryn Mawr on South Bryn Mawr Avenue between Lancaster Avenue and Haverford Avenue across from Bryn Mawr Hospital.

Address: 101 South Bryn Mawr Avenue, Suite 320, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010

For office hours and additional information, call 610-525-6142. Visit their website at www.footeorthodontics.com or follow them on Twitter. Dr. Foote can also be reached via email at: info@footeorthodontics.com.

"We are thrilled to present the largest and most comprehensive survey of Jamie Wyeth's art ever to be assembled," said Thomas Padon, director of the Brandywine River Museum of Art.

“We are thrilled to present the largest and most comprehensive survey of Jamie Wyeth’s art ever to be assembled,” said Thomas Padon, director of the Brandywine River Museum of Art.

A major retrospective exhibition of artist Jamie Wyeth will examine his distinctive approach to realism over the course of six decades, from his earliest portraits to the present. Jamie Wyeth will include more than 100 paintings depicting the landscapes of the Brandywine Valley and coastal Maine, family members and fellow artists, as well as domesticated and wild animals, many executed in “combined mediums,” the artist’s preferred term to describe his technique. Jamie Wyeth will be on view at the Brandywine River Museum of Art from January 17 through April 5, 2015.

“We are thrilled to present the largest and most comprehensive survey of Jamie Wyeth’s art ever to be assembled,” said Thomas Padon, director of the Brandywine River Museum of Art. “Jamie Wyeth’s paintings find special resonance here–in the galleries amidst our collection of paintings by his highly talented family and in the location of his childhood home, his first studio and his most consistent muse, the Brandywine Valley. Wyeth’s feverishly creative vision is powerfully conveyed in the extraordinary works in this exhibition.”

Born into a renowned family of artists, including his grandfather, N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945), his father, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009), and his aunt, CarolynWyeth (1909-1994), Jamie Wyeth was given the opportunity and support to pursue painting seriously at a young age, although he never formally studied art, instead learning from his aunt Carolyn. Over the course of his career, he continued in the footsteps of his family by painting nearly exclusively in the Brandywine Valley and in Maine, while developing a highly personal approach to his art and exploring subjects and themes over several decades.

The exhibition will present a full overview of Jamie Wyeth’s works, including childhood drawings, his first virtuoso portraits, and early images inspired by his participation in NASA’s “Eyewitness to Space” program. The exhibition also includes paintings made during his time in New York with Andy Warhol at the Factory and his sketches and paintings of ballet star Rudolf Nureyev. His work in book illustration, examples of which will be on view, harkens back to his grandfather’s professional successes. His large scale portraits of barnyard animals and birds are forerunners to his series of the seven deadly sins as portrayed by seagulls, which displays Wyeth’s range and brilliant technique.

Many themes recur in Wyeth’s work, including the people and places most familiar to him, favorite subjects like animals and pumpkins, and even mysterious events and dreams. In Maine, Wyeth often focuses on the buildings and the people rather than the dramatic seascapes so often depicted by other artists. In Pennsylvania, many of his works depict his wife, Phyllis Mills Wyeth, in pursuit of her passion for carriaging, combining monumental scale equine painting with highly personal portraits.

Wyeth’s compositions reflect inspiration drawn from artists as diverse as John Singleton Copley, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, Rockwell Kent, and Edward Hopper, all of whom are represented by works of art in Wyeth’s personal collection. Jamie Wyeth includes portraits of subjects such as John F. Kennedy, Andy Warhol, and Rudolf Nureyev, shown alongside a selection of preparatory drawings and studies that offer a unique insight into the development of his work. Portrait of Shorty (1965), from the collection of Andrew and Betsy Wyeth, has been compared to Copley’s Boy with a Squirrel, a painting which the 18th-century artist sent to England to announce himself to the established art world.Wyeth’s painting, made when he was a teenager, functions in a similar manner, signaling the arrival of a remarkable new talent.

Voyeur, a 2012 painting of Warhol, is a product of the close study Wyeth made of Warhol during their collaboration in the 1970s. “In Voyeur, Warhol’s pale figure materializes on the rocky coast like a restless spirit, eternally watching and recording life through his ever-present camera,” said Amanda C. Burdan, associate curator at the Brandywine River Museum of Art. Warhol reappears in a series of paintings made since 2009, depicting a recurring dream of his artistic mentors–Winslow Homer, Warhol, N.C. Wyeth and Andrew Wyeth–posed in various configurations on the dramatic shore of Monhegan Island.

Other recent works include Sleepwalker (2013) and two mixed media assemblages that the artist calls “tableaux vivants”: The Factory Dining Room and La Côte Basque (2013), both recalling Wyeth’s experiences in New York. Never shown before this exhibition, these two miniature compositions–painted and sculpted at one-sixth life scale–connect Wyeth’s vision to a long tradition of surrealist and realist assemblage, and introduce yet another dimension of the imaginative worlds that inspire his creative process and, ultimately, his compositions.

Exhibition Catalogue
