It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of one of the founders of DMG America, Herb Wolfe. Father of current DMG America President, George Wolfe, Herb started Foremost Dental, the parent company of Zenith Dental at the time, alongside his fellow partners in 1983. In 2009, Foremost became DMG America.  Herb was an integral part of the company's launch, prosperity and growth. His contributions, steadfast work ethic, and dedication to the dental industry remain unparalleled. With a vigorous entrepreneurial spirit, Herb devoted himself to his career at an early age. Starting with his very fist sales position, he tirelessly worked his way through the ranks in the dental industry, where he made a name for himself. Ultimately, Herb co-founded and was President of Sultan Dental Products, in addition to being a partner in several other dental companies.

Herb was an extraordinary person.  His passing is a deep loss to our company, the dental industry, and entire community, and he will be profoundly missed by everyone whose lives he touched. He will be remember by all for his passion for life, love of fast cars, music and great cigars, his tenacity and most notably, his sense of humor. Our hearts and prayers are with his family and friends during this time.
