What Our Patients Say About Us

“This has been my “go-to” dentist for my daughter, since her first visit at about 3 years of age. The staff speaks to their customers…the children. They explain what’s going on, what they’re going to have done and really go out of their way to put them at ease… which puts MOMS at ease! Dr. Ackerman is the same way. She has a gentle, easygoing and patient nature. We love this place!”
