‘‘If you were my brother, sister, mother, or loved one, this is what I would recommend for you. I am concerned about you and want to ensure that we can maintain the health of your dentition as well as your overall health.”

Dr. Forest completed her dental education at the University of Minnesota and went on to complete a General Practice Residency (GPR) at Hennepin County Medical Center. During her GPR she experienced a plethora of unique experiences, including pediatrics, oral surgery, periodontal surgery, working with medically compromised patients, as well as developmentally delayed patients. These experiences have given Dr. Forest outstanding training in many different areas of dentistry.

Dr. Forest is married and lives in Minnetonka with her husband and their twin children, Zakariya and Zayna. As a couple, they work together to make Mint Dental a great place for our patients. 

Dr. Marwa Forest has always loved science, art, and working with her hands. Combine these with her love for people and you have the perfect fit for dentistry. What’s more, she has taken this a step further by showcasing the link between your oral health and overall wellness. 

She finds true satisfaction in making a difference to each patient’s overall health and enjoys establishing lasting relationships. 

Dr. Forest has created a dental experience which adapts and evolves according to the individual needs of each patient. When you visit our two offices, this uniqueness is felt right from the get-go.

During her free time Dr. Forest enjoys boating with her family during the summer and enjoys painting indoors during the winter.
