Schirmer Dentistry – a state-of-the-art dental care practice operating under the direction of David C. Schirmer, DDS – is excited to announce a grand opening event to celebrate its new Sarasota location. The ribbon-cutting ceremony led by the Sarasota County Chamber of Commerce will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, January 22, 2016, at 1435 South Tamiami Trail, Suite B, followed by a special reception featuring complimentary beverages, hors d’oeuvres catered by Michael’s On East, music, and more.

Dr. Schirmer has developed expertise in all phases of cosmetic and general dentistry, and has a special interest in dental sleep medicine – the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliances.

Dr. Schirmer consistently observes and engages the latest dental technologies and invests in only the highest-quality devices that improve the treatment experience. He is the first and only dentist in Sarasota to offer the painless and quick Air-Flow Master Piezon® cleaning technique, which utilizes a combination of air, water, vibration, and glycine.  Glycine is a harmless, colorless, sweet tasting crystalline substance.  This cleaning method is ideal for anyone with tooth sensitivity.  It is no more expensive than traditional cleaning, and is covered by insurance.

“I have been involved in the building and equipment installation of many dental offices throughout my 23-year career,” said Roy McDonald of Patterson Dental Supply. “Dr. Schirmer’s is easily among the finest – his design sense and equipment selection are the result of his experienced and thoughtful approach to care.”

Dr. Schirmer has been awarded honorary fellowships in the American College of Dentists, The International College of Dentists and The Pierre Fauchard Academy. Dr. Schirmer is also the Chairman of Education for the Dental Quality Alliance, a visiting lecturer at LECOM School of Dental Medicine, and one of the co-authors of Quality Measurement in Dentistry – A Guidebook.
