Forestadent Orthodontics announces a new partnership with Dr. Richard McLaughlin; the developer and founder of the McLaughlin Bennett Orthodontic Philosophy and Treatment System. The thriving global orthodontic manufacturer has seen rapid growth in the last few years and is excited to have attracted the attention of such a respected leader.

“We are delighted to join forces with Dr. McLaughlin!” said Mr. Stefan Foerster, General Manager of Bernhard Foerster GmbH. “At Forestadent our products are manufactured with the highest degree of clinical forethought and precision.
