Hank Barton, President
I spent 23 years selling dental equipment for the largest dental manufacturer in the United States. Through my career, I noticed that the industry was producing similar equipment with little or no wow factor. Chairs went up and down, dental units delivered handpieces, air, water and vacuum. They all worked well, or they soon went out of business. Fourteen years ago when I bought 26 year old Forest, I decided it was time for a new approach.
From the outset, my goal was to build uniquely beautiful dental equipment for customers who weren’t 100% satisfied with what the market had to offer. Core dental equipment is one of the few things used every single day by dentists; it should be an extension of their expertise and personality, contributing to a warm, friendly environment… yet reasonably priced and durably built, as the day-to-day cost of practicing dentistry is constantly increasing. This vision was my catalyst for creating Designer Friendly® + Affordable Excellence.
Only Forest offers complete color integration of dental equipment with your interior design. Choose from nine powder coat paint colors, three carbon fiber trim choices as well as a chrome option. Create a personalized look that will make you, your staff and patients smile.
Dentists and interior designers love being able to put something besides white into their beautiful patient friendly decors.

What if you could only order a white car with your sole color being your upholstery? You could live with it, but if given the choice, why would you? Once you see a Forest chair, delivery system and light package with color coordinated paint and upholstery in a well-designed treatment room, you wonder why it’s taken so long for a manufacturer to offer dental equipment with a full range of surface treatments.
