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
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.

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.

Never before have I ever had such a comprehensive exam with excellent customer service. Lifetime smiles not only did a thorough examination of all aspects of my mouth and teeth, they explained things to me on how to better maintain my teeth. I will definitely recommend them to friends and family.

Being new to the area, it's always hard to find new places to go. Well, I hit the jackpot with Lifetime Smiles. Found them on Google and I want to add to the great reviews that helped me decide on this office. I cannot express how impressed I am with Dr. Forester and his staff. From walking in the door and the service you experience is above all I have encountered. Customer service is phenomenal and the warm towel at the end is amazing 👌🏽. So thorough with the cleaning as well. You know they take pride in their services. Grateful for this office. So fun and makes you feel so comfortable. Thank you!!!
Our youngest daughter has had a tough experience with dentists over the years. As a result, visiting the dentist is not her favorite thing, to say the least. However, when we took her to see Dr. Forrester for the first time, we saw a completely different child. Dr. Forrester made her feel calm and relaxed, and he even got a few smiles out of her! She had a wonderful experience and we found our forever dentist!

Dr. Jim has been our family dentist since the 1980's. I walk into to his office with complete trust. Latest high-technology meets old fashioned work ethic.
I have been going to Dr. Forester for the past several years. I have always had a great experience and would definitely recommend Lifetime Smiles to anyone looking for a dentist. They do an excellent job with cleanings and offer helpful advice for maintaining my teeth and gums between visits.
