Big brand features for less is the brand strategy that helped us become the industry growth leader during the recent down economy. We pay extra attention to detail and quality, from tight tolerances between parts to durable finishes to metal components instead of plastic, so you get extra value from what you pay for.
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 your patients smile.
7000 Series Rear Mount Delivery
We are very proud of our 7000 Rear Mount, Side Delivery Series because we believe that when compared feature for feature with any other manufacturer, it is the highest quality delivery system made in North America. Once you realize the benefits of the Rear Mount, Side Delivery concept relative to chair-mounted deliveries, you will quickly see why Forest’s 7000 Delivery System is rapidly increasing in popularity.
9072 LED Light
9072 LED Light
The 9072 brings you all the benefits associated with the latest LED bulbs in an all aluminum light head housing. Aluminum is superior to plastic as it can be powder coated in one of our nine colors to complement your interior design; the tough finish easily withstands the rigors of the treatment room and will not fade, discolor or crack.
Forest Standard IC
Equipped with an ultra reliable pneumatic control block, the Standard IC is acclaimed for its simple design and straight forward technology. We use one Clippard anti-retraction valve per handpiece enabling each one to operate independently. If a water drip were to occur in one position due to a stuck valve, two back-ups are available, unlike handpieces from other manufacturers with only one valve for all three positions. Because no water enters the main control block, you won’t experience the damaging effects of water deposits and contamination. Affordable Excellence is achieved when every detail is done well.
The Euro control head pivots at the center of the chassis, allowing it to be positioned both next to and over the patient in the transthoracic position. Designed for maximum reach to the patient, the whips are mounted at the front of the control. The true beauty of Forest’s European style delivery is how smoothly the whips operate. They pull forward effortlessly and move side to side with just enough resistance to retract back. This control is top-rated in the eyes of discerning European dentists who have tested it against the vast array of whip system controls available to them.
The Value Series has earned a reputation for remarkable reliability at an affordable price. The durable pinch valve block system makes it ideal for high-production clinics, teaching facilities and the hygiene room. After seven to ten years of use, typical maintenance involves no more than moving the existing tubing a quarter of an inch away from the old pinch-point. This series is another great example of Affordable Excellence, simple yet appropriate technology.
The 1495 is a great solution for dentists and hygienists because it can be optioned to meet the needs of four-handed dentistry. The control head mounts to the rear of the chair on a heavy-duty arm allowing it to easily follow users as they move around the patient’s head. Unique to this delivery is an instrument tray holder attached to a flex arm with an air brake, so it can be positioned above the patient’s chest, ideal for placing prophy paste, instruments and other ancillary devices. This arm can be used on a Fixed Chair Mount, giving the 1495 delivery package a surprisingly small footprint, or it can rotate from side to side on a Pivot Mount.
Finally, a stool you can get excited about. Forest offers North America’s only doctor, assistant and office stools designed for forward-leaning practitioners. This exclusive feature allows for hours of pain-free work.
Every aspect of the stool has been designed to:
Remove stress on lumbar disks. Because the DuPont® mesh seat prevents slipping, it supports legs in a decline position, keeping your back in the proper 90 degree angle relative to the seat.
Allow for natural movement while supporting your spine and releasing tension. Because the backrest is rounded on the horizontal plane rather than the industry standard concave, it rolls up and down as you move forward and back, massaging the tissue and increasing circulation in the lumbar area.
Maintain proper alignment. The Active-Tilt™ seat plate mechanism allows you to move and lock into a decline, neutral and recline position, eliminating pressure points in any posture.
Eliminate noise. The all-surface 60mm polyurethane casters are virtually silent on any surface.
In addition, the Assistant’s Comfort Stool offers ratcheting torso support and a foot ring with height adjustment. The Office Comfort Stool features adjustable, removable armrests, making it a smart investment for everyone at your practice. Thanks to intelligent engineering you and your staff will enjoy the comfort and back health you deserve.
Let me start with a little history. Ten years ago after twenty five years selling Dental Equipment I bought 40 year old Forest Dental. I am prod to say that over that time we have been the North American growth leader and a top choice for treatment room updates.
This is primarily because we dared to be different. We are the only equipment manufacturer offering paint colors other than white. Copy the colors of your favorite sports team or school. Match the paint and upholstery colors of your living room. How about black upholstery with red contrast stitching on a charcoal gray metallic patient chair?
Forest customers are quick to point out that their Forest Treatment Rooms can be one of their key internal marketing components because they create a fun atmosphere that speaks volumes about their aesthetics and attention to detail. Insist on being shown the beauty of Forest.
