DentalEZ to Acquire Forest Dental
Design-Forward Manufacturer to Give DentalEZ an Expanded Portfolio and Extended Reach 

Malvern, PA (December 20, 2018)—DentalEZ announced the acquisition of Forest Dental, a 45-year-old manufacturer of dental operatory equipment. Located in Hillsboro Oregon, Forest is known for its highly reliable yet simple technology. The acquisition of Forest Dental gives DentalEZ an exciting new addition to a diverse and growing portfolio of dental products. 

“We’re in a time when practices recognize the importance of elevating and enhancing the patient experience,” said Heather Trombley, President and COO of DentalEZ. “Forest Dental uses beautifully crafted design to create a fun factor for both the patient and the staff. But the brilliance of their design extends well beyond the esthetic. Their products embody the design idea of simplicity, no more or less than exactly what the customer needs.” 

The acquisition of Forest Dental allows DentalEZ to continue with its new long-term strategic goals. The complementary product offering extends the DentalEZ reach across a variety of customer segments. In addition, the companies will be able to leverage the benefits of shared supply chains and operational functions. 

Current Forest customers will have the benefit of availing themselves to the more diverse line of products available from DentalEZ. Plus, the two entities will be able to utilize a single sales team, Professional Sales Associates, that is already familiar with Forest Dental Products. 

The Forest Dental brand will continue as part of the DentalEZ portfolio of products, and the company will go to market as Forest Dental Equipment. The current Forest Dental leadership team will remain in place in Hillsboro, OR, including Hank Barton who bought Forest Dental in 2004. 

Barton’s vision—making dental equipment more exciting and esthetically appealing—has become a signature trait of Forest designs. This includes offering practices a diverse color palate, carbon fiber trims, chrome accents, contrast upholstery stitching and more. 

“It’s with great enthusiasm that we take this next step forward for Forest Dental,” said Barton. “The real beauty of this is that DentalEZ recognizes and respects what we have accomplished in the market place, and with their backing Forest can go further, faster than we ever could have alone. Everyone at Forest is excited about this next stage in our long history.”

package2As we get close to the end of the year, many dentists are purchasing operatory equipment to reduce your gross income in order to take advantage of tax benefits. There are a few tax laws to discuss with your tax advisor as they impact dentists, making equipment purchases ideal in the closing months of the calendar year.

Besides the standard reductions, there is a new 20% pass-through deduction that makes anyone with an income below $415 eligible. If your overall income is between $315k and $415 you are qualified for a portion of the 20% deduction, and if your salary is below $315k you are qualified for the full deduction. Talk to your CPA about deductions so you can benefit.

Dental operatory equipment purchases need to be installed and able to be used before the end of the year to be eligible. To help you meet these requirements, DentalEZ has configured 4 pre-built equipment packages. We will be able to ship these packages within 48 hours of receiving the purchase order through December 18th and while supplies lasts.

National Bison Day

Written by


Tomorrow is the first Saturday in November so that means it’s National Bison Day!  In May 2016, President Obama named the historical symbol of the United States, the American Bison, our National Mammal. Bison were integrally linked with many Native American Indian tribes’ culture through economic trade and spiritual sacred ceremonies. Bison also play an important role in improving agriculture for the types of grasses found in landscapes to the benefit of grasslands and hold significant economic value for private producers and rural communities.

We can never forget the American Bison, a North American species of bison that once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds in the 16th century, who became nearly extinct by commercial bison hunting where railroad trains were used as hunting rails whenever encountered by large herds alongside or crossing the tracks. American settlers aboard trains fired from the trains roof or windows, leaving countless animals to rot where they died, slaughtering an estimated 50 million bison by the 19th century in an attempt to destroy the livelihood of Plains Indians.

Thankfully, we can celebrate the courageous men and women who fought to revive the American Bison. Through farming efforts, bison populations have increased to about 500,000, they are no longer considered an endangered species, and are once again roaming free on private lands and public lands including environmental and government preserves.

DentalEZ Integrated Solutions admires the strength and perseverance of bison. The RAMVAC Bison Dry Vac has these same characteristics with rugged performance and mighty strength in a compact frame.

Bison Facts:

  • National Bison Day began 2012
  • The Senate passed a resolution in 2013 to recognize the day
  • North America’s heaviest land animal
  • Weighs between 930 – 2,200 lbs., reaching up to 6 feet tall
  • Both males and females have short, curved horns
  • Bison can run at speeds up to 35 mph and are strong swimmers
  • Inspire men to mimic their trendy beards

 Bison Dry Vacuum Facts:

  • 100% water free
  • 10 year no-fail, on wear-out pump warranty
  • Superior due to its longevity, efficiency and unmatched performance
  • Hefty- can serve up to 12 users

For children, it’s the sweetest holiday but for dentist and parents alike, Halloween candy consumption can be truly horrible. Kids collect more candy in a single night than they could ever eat, so this extra loot created an opportunity to share leftover Halloween candy with others and bring a smile to their face. Across the nation, dental and orthodontic offices participate in a Halloween Candy Buyback program where children can trade in their leftover candy for cold hard cash. What happens to all that candy? The donated candy is distributed to troops all over the world, local homeless shelters, orphanages, and food banks. So, gather the kids and bring the candy you don’t want to a participating dentist office near you and get some extra cash! Giving back, is the sweetest treat of all. Happy Halloween!
