Hi, I am Dr. Ackerman, I grew up in Lodi California and graduated dental school in 1986. I then came to Sacramento area and bought this practice. Sacramento has been my home ever since, and I love it!
I have two beautiful children, Taylor is my son and Nikki is my daughter. My kids are my first priority and my best friends. In the winter we ski and snowboard in Tahoe as much as our schedules allow. In summer, we like to camp and take the boat out on the lake. As long as we are together, we are having a good time!
One of my passions is being a part of the community. I am the President for the Sacramento District Dental Society and a board member of the California Dental Association. I find networking and continuing education very rewarding, and I am grateful for the opportunities I have been offered by being a part of these institutions.
My philosophy in my dental office is to give the best possible care to the best possible patients. I am conservative in my approach to dental care and want the patient to be comfortable at all times. I hope you call my office and when you come in, I want you to enjoy it here as much as I do.

Dr. Ackerman and his staff went above and beyond to help me when I was in severe tooth pain. The calm nature of the office made me very comfortable and Dr. Ackerman has an incredible bedside manner, a mix of relaxed and fun. I would recommend him to anyone who asks me for a densist referral.
Dr. Ackerman and his staff are some of the best people you'll ever met. They also provide amazing service and you'll feel like they really care. I've been going here for years and there simply is no one better.
Dr Ackerman is the best of the best ! I had an emergency and was taken immediately. He recognized the problem, fixed it and I walked out a happy camper with follow-up instructions to do at home.. By the end of the day I was pain free
The best veterinary in Citrus Heights or Sacramento for that matter. They Love each and every animal and care for them as if it were there own pet. Michelle Staff are top of the line. Love each one of them tremendously. Been taken my baby girl to them since she was 8 weeks old and now she is almost 13 years old. I'm def choosing them for my other pets as well.
