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.

You guys are the best! I just love to come in and have Gay clean my teeth and Gary is the best dentist in the world......I used to be so scared and he knows just how to handle me and make me comfortable and ease my fears.....Thank goodness I found him 22 years ago!
I always have great service provided to me at Dr. Garys office from Dr. Gary to the entire staff and excellant service from Gay. Gary is very good at informing you of exactly what he is doing and making sure you are as comfortable as you can be with very little pain during procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Gary when given the opportunity.
Excellent treatment as usual. Been in several times in the last two months and I'm always treated very well. One day I had some pain going on and I got in within the hour. Everyone is very helpful and kind.
I went in for a facial and enjoyed the experience very much. I also enjoyed learning about better skin care. The atmosphere was very nice and calming. The school is really clean and the people were very friendly. The student that I had was exceptionally thorough. I think she will do great in the career ahead of her!
