Dr. Acker


Meet Dr. Acker

Dr. Acker first came to Venice, FL, in 1992 after running a successful practice in Gainesville from 1974 until then. Before running his first practice, he went to college at Rutgers for his B.A. and the New Jersey College of Dentistry for his professional training. The doctor feels a calling to teach other professionals, passing on his knowledge and experience to dental students and other professionals alike. That’s why he has been involved in education for his entire career.

Today, he not only teaches at the Florida College of Dentistry, but he also travels the country lecturing on dental implant procedures. As a dentist, he brings that knowledge to bear in each procedure he performs, providing excellent care to patients at his practice with Dr. Lehninger and Dr. Holbrook whenever he is not teaching or lecturing.

Awards and Recognition

Dr. Acker has received many awards and honors throughout his career, starting early with the achievement of first the Fellowship and then the Mastership levels in the Academy of General Dentistry. Fewer than 2,000 dentists in the world have achieved this honor. His other awards, honors, and credentials include:

  • Master’s Certificate in Comprehensive Dentistry from the University of Florida

  • Diplomate status in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists

Professional Memberships

One of the ways the doctor demonstrates his commitment to ongoing education for all dentists is by participating in professional organizations. These organizations provide him with the opportunity to teach and learn with other professionals, picking up new practices to improve procedures as they are developed and sharing his own findings with others. He is a member of these professional organizations:

  • Academy of General Dentistry

  • Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation

  • American Dental Association

  • Florida Dental Association

  • International Congress of Oral Implantologists

  • Sarasota County Dental Association

In addition to these memberships, he has in the past served as a member of the Florida Dental Board. He has also been a test constructor for both the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association.

Ongoing Work With Patients

Developing a high degree of skill and being invited to teach others is an honor in any field. In dentistry, it means you have the kind of careful method that others aspire to. That’s why most professionals who teach also continue their practice. If you’re interested in a teeth cleaning or you have questions about procedures like dental implants, make an appointment today.
