Meet Dr. John Foore - Dentist Trappe, PA
I am lucky to have a life that helps others have a better life. Getting to know the people who are my patients expands my world knowledge, and hopefully their knowing me has a positive influence in their lives, as well.
Professionally, dentistry allows me to care for an amazing range of patients, all with unique backgrounds and all with distinct oral healthcare needs. As I work with them to improve their oral health, I am allowed to learn about their lives and experiences. Being able to help my patients, while bettering myself through our exchanges, is truly an honor.
When a patient comes to me, especially an individual who has had negative dental experiences in the past, I take the trust that they place in me very seriously and do my best to ensure that their time in my care is positive. I want them to understand that dentistry does not have to be an unpleasant experience. I spend time talking with the reticent patient, about what is going to happen during their treatment, and why what we propose will be beneficial for them. Many times it is the fear of the unknown that has a patient unwilling to seek treatment. By educating them, listening to them, and answering their questions honestly and directly, I am able to erase a lot of those negative feelings.
Education and Continuing Education

- General Practice Residency in Dentistry, Saint Mary’s Hospital, Rochester, NY

- International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Fellow
In order to stay abreast of the latest developments in oral health technologies, treatments, and processes, I seek out continuing education courses through attendance at and participation in conferences, lectures, and seminars. I believe it is essential that I have the most current knowledge and skills in order to best care for my patients. To offer anything less would be unacceptable to me as a professional and as a compassionate human being.

I thoroughly enjoy living in Trappe; such a wonderful community to call home. After spending 25 years in Rochester, NY, it’s a relief not to be dealing with 100-inches of snow each winter! I am an avid golfer and I'm passionate about art, and love working with my hands, whether that’s woodworking or creating stained glass pieces. I believe in making the world a more beautiful place, however and whenever I can.
