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!

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 have been a patient of Dr. Jim's since he practiced off P'tree Dunwoody Rd. He is kind, patient (with my horrible gag reflex) and simply cares for his patients. I cannot imagine not seeing him for my dental needs.

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!

I've never paid for a cleaning in my life -- my insurance has always covered it. I'm not sure why this dental office sent me a bill for $46 for a simple cleaning and exam. I tried to talk to the dentist after the cleaning about my concerns, but he interrupted me and told me I would be a great candidate for their free sleep study. I agreed, and did it (3 nights) then dropped it off after that was done. I was told someone would call me the following week to set up an appointment with the dentist so we could talk about my results, but no one ever called. Instead I have $46 less dollars, and my concerns haven't been addressed and will never be from this office. I will never go back to a dental office that charges so much that my insurance doesn't even cover the full amount.

I grew up with a dentist named Dr. Hurt...yes, really!! I am so happy that I found Dr. Forester to be my dentist for something like the last 17 or 18 years! He is so skilled and knowledgable! I am thankful for how he and his hygienist help me care for my teeth! If you haven't been to Dr. Forester now is the time to start going! Thank you Lifetime Smiles!!

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.

You would be weird if you liked going to the dentist. Really. Weird. Today, I had a cavity filled, and an old filling repaired at the same time. It's been a long time since I have had a filling done. Either dental techniques have changed considerably over the years, or Dr. Forester is just flat out better, but today was a pretty easy experience. Faster, less pain, and a better looking result than I remember from other offices. I would recommend this office without reservation. I was very nervous going in, but would not be in the future, now that I know what to expect. He did a great job explaining every step, and made it look easy. On top of everything else, I waited maybe two minutes before starting my procedure.

Dr. Forester and his staff are just wonderful. He is a very skilled doctor. And he is always fun to talk to. I recently had several tooth bondings done to restore some eroded spots and high wear areas. And it's really made a difference -- just wonderful.

Dr. Forrester is a caring, meticulous dentist who makes each visit to his practice an occasion that I look forward to experiencing. Whether the procedure is as simple as a cleaning of my teeth, or as complicated as replacing a crown on a tooth, his expertise gives me confidence. I have used him for over twenty years and I would recommend him to anyone who wants a dentist who keeps up to date with new procedures. MMS.

Dr. Forester has just fixed a chipped front tooth for me and, as usual, has done a fantastic job. My experience here has always been wonderful. Great dentist and great support staff. I come from Scotland and my experience as a child at the dentist was very traumatic. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Forester when I came to the area almost 19 years ago and my apprehension was immediately put to rest by Dr. Forester and his staff on that first visit. The surgery always has first rate equipment and is always clean and comfortable. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Forester.

Everyone on the staff did a very good job of making me feel comfortable.

In fact they made me so much at ease that I even fell asleep during the procedure!

Dr. Forester is highly exceptional in patient care and knowledge-base. I look forward to my 6 month check-ups just to 'catch up' with Michelle, my dental hygienist! She is so talented and amazingly personable. She and Dr. Forester could make any nervous patient feel calm and at ease, while getting some of the best non-compromised dental care in the city of Atlanta!

I chipped my front tooth and was very nervous about how it would look when fixed. The entire office put me at ease. Not only was it a painless experience, the care that I was shown was fantastic! He took extra time to match the color correctly and make it look perfect. It looks better than it did before it was chipped. Great experience!

I have been a patient of Dr. Forrester for many years as have all my children and my wife. I have had crowns, bridges, orthodontia, and whitening done on my teeth over the years. Dr. Forrester is a true professional. His work is top notch and he takes the time to make sure you have all the information you need to make the best decision for your care. I have gotten to know him pretty well as my dentist and I know that he takes great pride in providing excellent care and is always taking advanced seminars to learn the latest and greatest in dental care. In fact, his work has been recognized as being excellent and has been asked to mentor dentists in his profession at the seminars. As for his office, he works along side some wonderful people. The hygienists are very professional and excellent at what they do, the dental assistant is also wonderful and their office manager makes it all happen. I highly recommend Lifetime Smiles if you are looking for excellent dental care in the Atlanta area.

I have been a patient of Dr. Forester for 28 yrs. I am extremely picky regarding to whom I entrust my mouth. I drive a long distance and pass many other dental offices to get to his practice for many reasons.Jim is an excellent dentist with mad skills. He continues his education and utilizes state of the art equipment and modern practices. He has a true comprehensive dental practice. I presented many challenges of dental issues due to having broken my jaw as child including TMJ. Jim was able to resolve all my issues and provide me with a great smile.All the hygienists are registered and top notched. His staff also continue their education. I am giving a shout out for Michelle who cleaned my teeth this morning! Michelle, my apologies for being so relaxed while in the chair that I fell asleep during having my teeth cleaned. Did I mention that they are gentle and fastidiously clean?I love the way that they take the time to actually listen to all my questions and educate me regarding not just my mouth and teeth health but my general health.Jim and the entire Lifetimesmiles staff, including the office manager, are extremely professional yet warm, friendly and caring.I am proud to be part of the Lifetimesmiles family!!!!

Dr. Forester is the best dentist I have ever had. I am so thankful someone recommended him to me. He truly cares about your health, not about how many procedures he can recommend to make money like many dentists I have had in the past. He took time to sit with me and look at x-rays closely to see what it was I needed. He has re-done some of the terrible work I have received in the past that was causing problems. I am confident I will continue to receive great care and can trust Dr. Forester. Also, the staff at Lifetime Smiles are the best! They take time to talk to me and ask about me. They aren't trying to rush me out or act like I am adding work to their day. I could go on forever. I promise you will receive the best care ever with this team!

Jim Forester is an old friend, who also happens to be a great dentist. He’s the most competent dentist I’ve ever used, great with basic “dental things” but also great with helping with an over-all picture for my lifetime dental health. He and his staff are always friendly and welcoming, going out of their way to make my visits pleasant. I highly recommend him.

How many people can say that they don't dread going to the dentist? I can.I've been going to Lifetime Smiles for about 15 years now and would not hesitate to recommend them to all of my family and friends.Dr. James G. Forester, D.D.S. is a great dentist and is good with kids as are all of his staff. They worked with me since I was an 8-year-old kid (I was not a cooperative child) and encouraged me (and gently reprimanded me) to maintain good dental health.Again, I highly recommend Lifetime Smiles.

My family has been coming here since I was 12 years old. All the other dentists we went to weren't very kid friendly, but Dr. Forester and my hygienist, Janice, knew just how to make my sister and I feel at ease. They also use some of the latest technology, and have thus been able to improve our experience at the dentist office.I now look forward to going to the dentist rather than dreading it!
