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.

Always an easy time at Dr. Ackerman's office. I was referred to him by a good friend back when I was having major issues. He got me on the right track and my teeth and gums are healthy again. My current hygienist is Amy and I am always comfortable around her. I have had Arlen as my hygienist as well. These gals are great!
I'm not sure why I'm surprised by how good I feel when I visit you're office, considering it happens every time! I guess it's a pleasant surprise because it's rare to enter a business with consistent excellent service and patient care. Everyone on your team is a cut above the rest!
I have been a patient of Gary's for a few decades. He and his staff have always been professional and accommodating (putting up with my juvenile sensitivities since day one). My home is in another county now, but when you have a good thing, you stick with it. I would recommend him to anyone searching for their first dentist or in need of changing their dentist.
