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.

As always, Gary Ackerman's Receptionist and Dental Hygienists are the best!! Very friendly and very caring!! They are all about smiles and making sure you are happy!! It's a pleasure getting to know the staff!!
I had a great first appointment. Tracy was very nice and professional. Lilly escorted me to the exam room and was sweet and friendly. I really appreciated how Dr Ackerman went through my X-rays and explained everything very thoroughly. I also like the fact he didn't have a whole list of "whats was wrong in my mouth" He said we would take one thing at a time and do just what needs to be done. He didn't overwhelm me with talk of implant and bridges, crowns etc. I'm looking forward to my cleaning and further appointments.
Thank you for your kinds words. If there is ever anything you feel that we can improve on, please let us know!!
I was seen promptly. Hygenist was professional and friendly. Dr. Ackerman took time to look at my face, which I had injured and have ongoing pain. Also, Dr. Ackerman was able to re-cement one of my husband's crowns that had fallen out.
SCPH took us in as an emergency appointment (due to no openings at our regular vet). We appreciate the convenience with which they scheduled us, the kindness and concern every staff member showed, and the thoroughness of the examination and treatment. The doctor called us early the next morning with all the blood work results, and we appreciate the prompt follow-up. SCPH should get 50 stars, not 5. We were very impressed and pleased.
