David Sherrard, DDS

Meet Dr. Sherrard at Life Long Dental in Silverdale, WA. 

Dr. David Sherrard was born and raised in Illinois with two sisters in a dental family. Dr. Sherrard often helped his father with dental lab work in the home basement lab. It was while working beside his father that the importance of saving a patient's natural teeth and building a practice on trust, one patient at a time, from referrals within the community, was instilled. Dr. Sherrard is a third generation dentist in his family.

More than just a dentist.

Dr. Sherrard graduated from Southern Illinois University in 1980 with a Bachelors of Science in Business. After graduation, he worked for John Deere Industrial Equipment Company for ten years in a variety of assignments, including instructional system design, providing vocational-technical training and serving as a field representative in Ohio and West Virginia.

Becoming a Dentist

In 1990, at the urging of his own dentist in Ohio, Dr. David Sherrard made a life-transforming decision. He changed careers and began pursuing dentistry as a third-generation dentist. He graduated in 1995 from Ohio State University with a DDS degree. From the beginning, his dentistry has been health based and involved getting clients out of the "emergency cycle of care" they had fallen into.
