Our Host

Dr. Gary C. Sherman, D.M.D., a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, enjoyed thirty-six productive and fulfilling years as a highly regarded general and cosmetic dentist in New York City and Long Island. After an arduous battle with congestive heart failure due to a congenital heart defect, Dr. Sherman is currently a heart transplant candidate. As he awaits the day that he is graced with a new heart, Dr. Sherman now triumphs, living life to the fullest with HEARTMATE 3 – a left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) which is an electromechanical pump that is attached to his heart and helps his heart’s left ventricle deliver oxygenated blood to all parts of his body.

Dr. Sherman’s astonishing journey through the healthcare system as both a healthcare provider AND a heart failure patient has given him a most unique perspective on how today’s health practitioner must relate to and understand his or her patients. More specifically, Dr. Sherman has accrued a wealth of knowledge about disease conditions of the heart and how dental disease and treatment influence and are influenced by those conditions.

Join Dr. Sherman as he takes you on his journey and shares his incredible life experiences with carefully researched studies, captivating images and emotional stories, while he interlaces new and vital information about heart disease and contemporary approaches to treatment. He will guide listeners in learning about a vast number of healthcare issues and how we all may allow our compassion and understanding to lead the way as we become active members of our global healthcare advocacy communities. 

In addition to his career in dentistry, Dr. Sherman was also the president of Pursuits Professional Business Consultants, where he was a formally trained expert in business valuation, with a special interest in valuation approaches for dental and medical practices. Dr. Sherman has lectured extensively on the business side of running a dental or medical practice, and has provided expert witness testimony for equitable partnership dissolution and divorce proceedings.

Dr. Sherman is a member of the American Dental Association. He is also currently serving as an LVAD Patient Ambassador for Abbott Biomedical whereby he visits with cardiologists to expand their knowledge and awareness of the left ventricular assist device, and with patients and their caregivers to inform, encourage and inspire them as they proceed through the complete experience of congestive heart failure and LVAD and heart transplantation surgeries and recovery. Dr. Sherman is also an Ambassador for the American Heart Association, whereby he participates personally and now through his podcast, in patient and caregiver support and fund-raising efforts in the tristate New York City region. Dr. Sherman is an active associate member of the National Speaker’s Association – NYC Chapter, and a graduate of the National Speaker’s Association’s Speaker University.
