Nearly 15 years ago, a young dentist purchased a local practice from his associate Dr. W. Darryll Price, DDS. Currently, his practice continues to thrive, and he has now acquired his Master’s.
Many of the staff members and patients from Dr. Price’s original practice are still maintained. Dr. Price left behind a legacy to his patients and his associate, Dr. Larry Saylor. Upon graduating from the Florida College of Dentistry, Dr. Saylor was sent across the nation to attend the best continuing education programs. In June, after years of study, Dr. Saylor graduated with his Master’s from the Academy of General Dentistry in San Francisco.
With world class technology, high-quality service and the passion and skill for the job, Dr. Saylor and his team of two registered dental hygienists, two certified dental assistants and two office employees serve patients from Sarasota, South Tampa, Lakeland and Dade City.
“We’re always open to new patients,” explained Treatment Coordinator Carolyn O’Brien.
Their goal is to help the community preserve and improve their overall dental health and feel confident in their smile.
“We focus on adults with significant dental issues that need treatment now,” Saylor said. “There are many who have been poorly served by dentistry purely based on what their insurance will cover, and as a result their dental health has declined rapidly over time. My goal is to have their teeth outlive them.”
Dr. Saylor is also a visiting faculty member at Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Ariz., one of the most prestigious dental institutes in the U.S.
“We focus on the cause and effect of dental issues and develop strategies unique to the individual. We stay two steps ahead of a problem, which results in dentistry that is more predictable, less invasive and less costly. This all starts with a good new patient exam,” Dr. Saylor said of his strategy. With his experience and newly acquired degree, he is eager to serve the community and provide for their dental healthcare needs.
DMD Dr. Larry Saylor’s office is located at 213-B Kingsway Rd. For more information, visit www.doctorsaylor.com or call 689-4226.
