"Dr. Jimmy," as he is affectionately known around the office, is a 2018 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry with Summa Cum Laude honors. He has really enjoyed meeting (and more often "re-meeting" from his childhood) our wonderful patients, and looks forward to being an integral part of their oral health. Dr. Jimmy is a member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, Toledo Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry. He has a passion for dental photography and is always ready to learn new dental techniques to deliver quality, painless dentistry. Outside of the office, Dr. Jimmy is an avid Ohio State fan, as he attended The Ohio State University for his undergraduate career as well, and enjoys playing golf on the weekends.

Nancy Zimmerman is not only the wife of Dr. Zimmerman, but is also a registered dental hygienist. She graduated from college in 1980 and has worked with her husband ever since in many capacities. She may work with orthodontic patients, assist the doctor, clean patients' teeth, or pay office bills. She is the proud mom of Dr. Jimmy, a dentist in our practice, and Mary, a children's therapist in Columbus. Nancy really enjoys and promotes the family atmosphere in the dental office, adding, "We have enjoyed getting to know many families in our practice, some of which include up to three generations of patients!"
Kari has been working with Dr. Zimmerman for several years now and loves the practice. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2008, Kari has grown to love dentistry even more, especially working here at Zimmerman, The Art of Dentistry. She really enjoys connecting with her hygiene patients and holds her own as the only supporter of the Wolverines on staff. Kari has two adorable dogs and enjoys attending all of the fun and diverse events Toledo has to offer!
