With ongoing concerns and uncertainty about the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, we want to reassure you that the health, safety, and well being of our patients and your family are very important to us. We are closely monitoring developments of the outbreak and are taking precautionary measures — consistent with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines – to help support the ongoing health and safety of our employees and patients. Knowing that missing teeth is a diabilitaing condition, we have forged a way to still have consultative visits that provide our patients with a protected environment allowing for on-going appointments. If you are suffering, we are here for you.
Dr. Erich Zimmermann was raised in Grosse Pointe Michigan and attended Central Michigan University and then University of Detroit. He graduated with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1993. He also attended the Las Vegas Institute for Cosmetic Dentistry, Medical College of Georgia for IV sedation, New York University for full mouth rehabilitation, The Dawson Institute for occlusion and TMJ therapy, and lastly The Misch Institute for surgical implant training.
His passion for golf, boating, and fishing led him to Naples, Florida. During his time there, he was in private practice for ten years providing Cosmetic Implant and comprehensive dentistry to South West Florida. However, Dr. Zimmermann wanted to try out a new environment that was less humid so this desire led him to his next move to Denver and then shortly after to Colorado Springs, Colorado. There he continued private practice for fifteen years where he and his family enjoyed biking, skiing, and hiking in the great outdoors.
Dr. Zimmermann has now been practicing in the Pittsburgh area for three years. He’s a Fellow of the International Congress of Implant Dentistry and has placed over 5,000 dental implants over the past 28 years.
Outside of Dentistry, Dr. Zimmermann has been married for twenty-five years to his wife Lisa. Together, they have three children Katie, Meghan, and Zachary. In his spare time, he enjoys biking, skiing, riding his Harley Davidson, and spending time with his family. He has been with Medgaus Dental Group since July, 2021 and we are so honored to have Dr. Zimmermann as a part of our team!
