I have been seeing Dr. Forman regularly since he opened his practice. He is consistently professional, helpful and thoughtful in his approach. He is the only doctor I have seen regularly for so many years and I feel lucky that I came across his practice years ago. I give him my highest recommendation, without hesitation.

Originally written and posted on a duplicate profile on 3/4/11: I was referred to Dr. Forman by my co-workers at the Food Project back in 2004. I didn’t have dental insurance but I always got my biannual check ups. I had gone to Gentle Dental in Somerville and they tried to convince me I had 8 cavities which I knew was BS based on my prior check up 6-months before. When I went to Dr. Foreman he saw what work I did and didn’t need. I had to get a root canal and crown. When I told him my mother, who once was a dental assistant in NYC, would not be happy about the news he offered to call my mom. He actually called me one night several days later to check on me after the root canal work and asked again if he should call my mom (no joke). For big procedures like root canals and wisdom teeth removal he refers you to some excellent specialists in the area. For the 4 years I had visited Dr. Foreman I have always received excellent care and his hygienist are great too. My husband and I have referred him to friends, coworkers, and roommates. As mentioned in the previous review, Dr. Foreman is the best kept secret in Central Sq. Now that my husband and I live in Vermont, we miss having Dr. Foreman as our dentist. Our dentist is fine now but Dr. Foreman is by far the best at general dentistry and is a good person who cares about his patients.

I’ve just had my first visit with Dr. Forman. He and his staff were incredibly kind and thorough, explaining each step of the comprehensive exam and carefully answering my questions as we went along. The office is super modern and the cleanest I’ve seen. Dr. Forman took his time and was gentle and engaging — though never overly so! Super glad to have Dr. Forman’s office in my neighborhood. Will be recommending him to friends!

I have been going to Dr. Forman for five years now– I was referred to him by a co-worker. Since then, I have recommended him to anyone who needs a dentist. He’s the best dentist I’ve ever been to! He is very personable, and his staff is very professional and thorough. I used to go to Gentle Dental, until they kept telling me I had cavities (which I did not actually have). I went to get a second opinion, and sure enough, I did not have the cavities. Dr. Forman is trustworthy, honest and really a great dentist.

A friend recommended Dr. Khristy Fontillas (who works in the same office as Dr. Forman) and she is awesome! She is really friendly and reassuring. I have pretty poor/weak teeth, and she did a great job explaining what issues need to be addressed now versus which can wait. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist.

My co-worker referred me to Dr. Foreman when I broke a tooth. I had the same family dentist for 30 years and traveled back to a different state for my routine dental care but I couldn’t wait for this and I had been less than diligent in the routine stuff over the last couple of years. Dr. Foreman completely understood the relationship with my other dentist and still fixed me up with infinite patience and kindness, understanding that I may still use the “other dentist’ for big stuff. I’m thrilled to now have a dentist in the actual state I live in and will be looking forward to my next cleaning. To top it all off, Ellie, the front office person is a delight. She has the calm and interested demeanor you hope for in a friend or a therapist and it is a great comfort in a dental office, where sometimes you are there against your wishes… Thanks to my co-worker for this great tip. And thanks to Dr. Foreman for a nice smile 🙂

I have been a patient of Dr. Forman for 15+ years, and he is truly fantastic. Warm, friendly, thorough and highly professional, he is absolutely excellent. Very patient-focused. He also has a top notch team of dental hygienists, and I have been very happy with both Liz, who has been my “regular” and Arielle. The practice is well run. I was there today and I must say that the safety precautions around Covid-19 made me feel at ease and very confident that they are doing everything possible to keep their patients and themselves safe. I highly recommend Dr. Forman, his people and his entire practice, without any reservations whatsoever. They are a pleasure to work with.

Every time I call the office, the receptionist is so polite and helpful. This past time I needed to go because a filling (from a previous dentist) had fallen out. They squeezed me in that day, and made it look so much better than it had before. Dr. Forman is always attentive, and never makes you feel like he’s rushing between several patients. Clean, inviting office. Friendly staff. Great Dentist.

I’m conflicted about writing this review. While I’d like to keep Dr. Forman a secret so that I’ll never have to fight for an appointment as it is right now, I also feel compelled to be a Good Samaritan and help local residents looking for a trustworthy dentist by spreading word of where to find one. To settle this struggle, I’ll go with the latter and happily put out a good review for Dr. Forman because he’s done such a great service for me. To begin, the location is convenient if you’re a Central Square or Harvard Square resident. If don’t have a mailbox in the area, you can still get there rather easily since the #1 bus drops you off in front of his office on Mass Ave. I’ve visited Dr. Forman 2-3 times already (sorry, but I don’t have a great memory for dentist visits), and every one of them was quick and painless. My cleanings did not hurt like they usually did with past hygienists. When they’re over, I always feel like Dr. Forman is being straight with me on whether I need any further dental work or not in his final review. Why do I say this? Well, when I lived in San Diego, I went to a dentist who got me on extra work every single time I stepped into the office. Additionally, for some reason, I just didn’t have a good vibe with the DMD from the start. Maybe my worries were unwarranted, but since I’ve been making visits to Dr. Russell, the only extra work I’ve had was to repair some of the San Diego dentist’s work. I don’t think my brushing habits really changed over the years, and yet one guy is saying my mouth needs an overhaul, while the other says no problems for the most part. Maybe it’s because Mr. San Diego dentist had his office in a posh building complex and he needed to cover his rent, but I guess I’ll never know. Speaking of offices, the facilities are very clean and well maintained. Props for having The Economist for reading material, the only weekly that I read, but I didn’t even get to pick it up because they were ready for me when I arrived. (Going off on a tangent, but if he actually reads it himself, I would not be surprised. Why? Because the guy attended UPenn for dental school! Check your school rankings and you’ll start to feel real good about seeing him for your teeth.) All of the dental hygienists and the receptionist are cheerful, funny, and are very conversational. This really helps since going to the dentist can already make you feel a bit anxious. I suppose the only aspect that I can’t make an objective comment on is price because my dental plan has taken care of everything. I’m sure it’s safe to say that he’s competitively priced since there are several other options in the area, but you should feel confident that he’s going to do a good job because, again, he received his training from one of the better schools. And after you go to him once, your ease of mind will come from your excellent experiences with him and his staff.
