Dentistry Today


Services will be held for Herb Wolfe, one of the founders of DMG America, who died on August 8, 2018, in New York City. Father of current DMG America president George Wolfe, Herb started Foremost Dental, the parent company of Zenith Dental at the time, with his partners in 1983. In 2009, Foremost became DMG America. 

According to the company, Herb Wolfe was an integral part of its launch, prosperity, and growth, and his contributions, steadfast work ethic, and dedication to dentistry remain unparalleled. His career began with a sales position at an early age, and he tirelessly worked his way up through the ranks as he made a name for himself as cofounder and president of Sultan Dental Products and as a partner in several other dental companies, DMG America says.

Services will be held on Friday, August 10 at 10:30 am at Riverside Memorial Chapel, 180 W 76th St., New York City, followed by burial at New Montefiore Cemetery, West Babylon, NY.
