Eric J. Forsberg, DDS
Thanks for taking the time to visit our little spot on the web. I’m Dr. Eric, the owner and dentist of Altoona Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. We’re relatively new to the Altoona and East Polk area, opening our doors in March of 2011. Since that time I’ve been delighted to have so many new faces and personalities through our doors. I’m also honored to have many patients of my original practice in Newton be so willing to travel to us.
I graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 2003 with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery, and my first day in practice was anxiously waiting for my license number to be assigned while patients had arrived for their appointments. Looking back I can laugh now and be thankful for everything leading up to the present. I met my wonderful wife Angie while we were attending Central College. Married in a blizzard in 2000, we were blessed with the birth of our son Tytus in 2008. As a family we enjoy visiting friends and relatives and occasionally find time to cheer on the Hawkeyes too.
Being a dentist is a great privilege, and I look forward to helping patients for many years to come. It’s rewarding to work with a variety of people and perspectives and I truly enjoy the variety my career brings. We enjoy working with kids, teens, and adults alike. Our team is here for the shy and scared person who’s seeking out their first positive dental experience as well as the fun-loving person who’s looking to have a smile to match the inner self they know. Whether you have your smile examined regularly, or if it’s even been a few years since your last visit we’ll be happy to serve you. Thank you again for considering us, and we’ll look forward to your call….
