David Christopher Schirmer
I truly enjoy dentistry as a profession and come from a family full of dentists, including my father, daughter, and several cousins. Before moving to Sarasota, Florida, I practiced in New York as a successful general and cosmetic dentist. With my new team here in Sarasota, we are continuing the practice of general and cosmetic dentistry with the special interest in facial esthetics and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
We have constructed a new state of the art facility here in Sarasota adjacent to Memorial Hospital. We are very excited to provide our patients with the highest level of care, but with special attention to their particular desires in treatment options.
Highlights of my career include several honorary fellowships as nominated by my peers. I also am one of the co-authors of the first book on quality measurement in dentistry. But most of all, I have enjoyed providing care to all of my patients and look forward to serving you.

One of the things I like best about working with Dr. Schirmer, Christy and Suzy is the calm and tranquil environment we have at Schirmer Dentistry.
