University of Pennsylvania
Dr. Ari Forgosh graduated with honors from University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and was selected by its faculty to be a member of dentistry’s most prestigious honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon. After completing his residency at Lehigh Valley Hospital, he was offered a position in one of the top dental practices in Massachusetts. For five years, he worked side by side with two exceptional dentists who taught him to practice as a perfectionist.
In 2005, Dr. Forgosh brought his commitment to excellence back to his hometown in the Lehigh Valley, and opened Green Hills Family & Cosmetic Dentistry based on a vision of total patient care. Two years later, he invited his friend and mentor, Dr. Karl Glassman, D.D.S., to join his practice. The merger of their two offices ensured the continuity of the Lehigh Valley’s oldest restorative dental practice when Dr. Glassman retired in 2012.
Dr. Forgosh has completed an advanced training curriculum with the world-renowned Dawson Academy, with a special focus on treating occlusal disease, esthetic dentistry, and solving complex dental problems. He travels to Manhattan once a month to mentor other dentists from throughout the Mid-Atlantic states as the leader of the Dawson Academy Study Club of New York, and functions as an Ambassador for the Dawson Academy at other conferences and courses during the year. The Academy’s mission is to “make good dentists even better”. Being selected for these positions from among tens of thousands of dentists around the world is an exceptional honor.
While Dr. Forgosh enjoys his role helping other dentists, he is most at home working with his patients. He is exceptionally gentle, patient, and caring with dental patients of all ages, and can make even the most phobic patient feel comfortable.
Dr. Forgosh enjoys cycling, skiing, and coaching youth sports. He spends most of his free time pursuing these hobbies with his wife and son.
