Patient Reviews

Even though I no longer live close to Lifetime Smiles, it's worth it to me to make the drive for my dental care. Dr Forester and team are committed to excellence and demonstrate that commitment through regular continuing education, staying on top of innovations in preventative care and treatment. Lifetime Smiles offers a full range of dental care far beyond what is expected from a dental office. I've trusted Dr Forester and his team to take great care of my family and me for almost 30 years and will continue to make the drive because of that well-earned trust.

Great experience, as always! Have been a patient for over 10 years and always receive excellent care! Kristy did a thorough and professional job cleaning my teeth. And I enjoy seeing Jaclyn and Nena at the front desk. A very skilled and kind group - I always enjoy my 6-month visit. Thanks Dr. Forester!
I’ve enjoyed being a patient for 25+ years. Dr Forrester is an excellent dentist and always a pleasure to talk to. If you have any anxiety about having to go to the dentist he will be able to put you at ease. He is also supported by an excellent staff of Hygienist and Front office folks that are all very knowledgeable and helpful.

When my previous dentist retired, I had the unfortunate problem of finding one equally good. Through some good fortune, I wound up with Dr. Forrester. I couldn't be happier. Terrific staff. Top-notch hygienists. Feel like they are a partner in my success. Highly recommend!

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Forester for close to 40 years and I have never looked for another dentist during that time. Simply put, he’s the best. It’s a practice that is run with the highest levels of integrity, professionalism and patient centric care. He has an outstanding reputation in the local community and I have numerous friends who go there as well. I’d recommend Dr. Forester and Lifetime Smiles to anyone in need of an incredible Dentist who will put the patient first!

Expert staff. Friendly, pleasant environment. Good advice that has helped stop dental deterioration. My wife and I (and her side of the family) have been coming to Dr. Forester for years, and we will continue to do so.

I grew up drinking soda and eating sugar all the time, so my teeth are a mess, but the staff at Lifetime is really helping me to make sure that my teeth last for my whole life. I highly recommend them!

Dr Jim and the whole team at Lifetime Smiles have always been fantastic. I moved south of atlanta several years ago and I still make the trek up to Johns Creek to see them. It’s worth it!

Dear Dr. Jim,LOVE my mouth piece! Thank you!!! Truly, DEEPEST APPRECIATION for the kindness you showed me.Jacqueline mentioned you were an elder at Perimeter church. I noted you & Dr. Broome speaking of your mission ministry opportunities. I felt like being in your office was a divine appointment in that it gave me a vision to help our church cultivate the warmth, love and energy I experienced in your office. Such a pleasure to meet Jaclyn and Jazmin! You have a great team!Much gratitude,Laura
This is a good place to go and I really like it and the people are really really nice

I have been a patient of Dr. Forester for over 30 years. He provides exceptional service and is very meticulous in his dentistry. I have referred many friends to him over the years. If you are not a current patient of his, try him out...you won't be disappointed!
The best of the best! My front teeth needed to be bonded and between the color match and shaping, Dr. Forester perfected my smile. I have had so many compliments and I completely credit his work! He moved appointments around so I could get in ASAP, I cant say enough about his office!
I’ve lived in several places throughout the eastern part of the US. Dr. Forester is the best dentist that I’ve ever had. The office staff is very friendly and responsive. I would highly recommend Lifetime Smiles to anyone.

Jim and his staff- specifically the ones I interact with: Jacqueline(front desk) Michele-dental assistant and my hygienist Trisha are incredibly dedicated to meeting all my family’s dental needs. Warm, friendly and they make you feel appreciated as a patient. 8 used first names on purpose because they make you feel that comfortable.
I had major jaw pain due to an incorrect bite since February 2021. I have had orthodontics, root canals and dental implants over the years, so Dr. Forrester had to come up with a unique plan that worked for me. I am very pleased with his work and I am finally out of pain.

I was a patient concerned with the pain factor since my last dental experience ( outside of cleanings) was back in the early 80’s. This office was 100% painless and made getting a crown easier than even minor procedures. They explained everything in advance and were true professionals. I highly recommend them and will be sending my family there.

I’m pretty sure what I experienced at my last visit with James Forester is considered harassment… As I was making casual conversation, I mentioned how I just got back from Miami, to which he responded “Did you keep your top on while you were on the beach?” I’d like to point out the irrelevance of the answer, the fact that my dentist was asking me that question at all was inappropriate and just plain weird. But I was already sitting in the chair, with another dental hygienist on the other side of me, so I didn’t know what to do. I said “Yes I did” with a polite laugh, then he went on with a story about him and his wife being at South Beach one time, where he saw this young woman going into the water, walking with her arms crossed over her chest. He said he took a moment to realize, but he eventually noticed she had her top off. Then he went on to joke about how he noticed more people nude on the beach, but specifically people he wouldn’t want to look at. THEN he said the one he’d want to see is ironically the one covering herself up… the dental hygienist in the room (also a woman) simply laughed. I felt so incredibly uncomfortable at the time, I laughed too, but I couldn’t believe what I just heard, and we were all just laughing about it? I wish I actually said something then, instead of freezing up and just waiting for the appointment to be over. Every person I’ve told about this experience since thought I should’ve said something at the time. The fact that I am a young woman myself, maybe more easily able to see that young woman’s position on the beach with men like him staring at her while they sit next to their wives, may give me some bias I recognize, but that is not what is relevant here either. This man, who is the boss, has created a work environment for him to safely say things like this and just laugh it off as a joke. Even though I myself, and the employee of his laughed that day, there was absolutely nothing funny about this joke, and now you’ve lost a client, but now I have the best reason to give my first ever bad review.Edited, PS: As a lifelong client of Dr. Broom’s, it breaks my heart to see this practice go to a man like this.

Had a very unprofessional encounter with Dr. Forester. He spoke to me in a very rude and unprofessional manner. We switched dentist offices shortly after.
