Lori is a DMACC graduate. Since 1988 she has worked for Dr. Forrest, through the growth of the practice and our move from West Des Moines to Clive in 2006. Lori is a rock concert enthusiast and lifelong Aerosmith fan who cherishes time with her children, grandchildren and many close friends and family. Lori sees to the continuity of care for her patients, ensuring a smooth and stress free visit with doctor.


Rosie has been with Berkshire Dental since her graduation from Vatterott in 2007. She and her husband have two children, one dog and a small acreage where they try their hand at growing healthful foods and enjoy ample space for their children to romp. We appreciate the benefits of her enthusiastic patient care, attention to detail and “Energizer Bunny” style.


Janessa graduated from Vatterott in 2010 and we are delighted she chose Berkshire Dental as her first position after college. Janessa is mother to a son and daughter. She hails from a family of excellent chefs and prepares those same delicious foods for family and friends. Her calm, efficient approach assists the Dr. and hygienist to make your visit a pleasant one. Janessa says our patients make her job easy because they appreciate the value of good oral hygiene and quality restorative care.


Tracy graduated from DMACC in 1992, has been with Berkshire Dental since 2013, and came to us with a wide range of experience. She and her husband have two children, a boy and a girl. The family are avid campers and they spend many evenings at the children's' games and tournaments. Tracy has brought a calm, mature demeanor to her job which is appreciated by all. She finds personal enjoyment when she succeeds in helping her patients feel mentally and physically at ease during their time with us.
