Founded in 1987 by three engineers that immigrated from the Soviet Union, Forum Engineering Technologies is a leader in electronic dental medical devices and advanced dental equipment.

Forum’s first products were advanced vacuum porcelain furnaces that made possible to achieve the best results with any kind of porcelain materials and ensures unmatched flexibility of baking process. Microcomputer based electronics and other achievements of latest furnace technology led to a versatile, reliable, high performance and affordable design.

The company owns unique patented technology in the apex locators field. Its first apex locator – Bingo-1020 – was introduced in 1998. Various models of apex locators based on this technology are produced and marketed by Forum both as its own brands and as OEM products distributed under brand names of leading international dental companies. Approximately 30% of the apex locators’ business is based on Forum’s technology.

Several innovative technologies have been developed by Forum over the years and new products utilizing these technologies are planned to be introduced to the market soon. Forum’s Implant Locator, an innovative concept in the field of implantology, was introduced in 2016 and is already being distributed in many territories.
