Dr. Daniel Ackerman

Dr. Daniel Ackerman graduated with honors from the Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry, where he was able to gain skills both in the patient clinic and on rotations in public health practices. While in school, he participated in a selective study club that focused on conservative esthetic treatment using gold (the longest lasting restoration we do in dentistry), and received awards in implant dentistry and periodontology.

Dr. Daniel is excited to be back home to Idaho as a part of our dental team and will enjoy working with you and your family for decades to come.

Dr. Dan has been married for four years to his wife Danielle, who is a studio artist and a pharmacy technician. They have two cats and are looking forward to settling down in their own place in the city. When he's not taking care of patients, Dr. Dan loves to golf and also enjoys snowboarding, mountain biking, and going on hikes with his wife, Danielle.

A word from Dr. Daniel: 

"I am a dentist because I love the satisfaction of helping people, and the relationships I get to have with patients. I also love the satisfaction of making something that was broken whole again. Dentistry is part science and part art, and I find the artistic aspects of dentistry both rewarding and engaging."

To our valued patients, we wanted to communicate to you the efforts we have been making to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Our highest priority is the health and well being of our patients, employees, and our community, and it is with these priorities in mind that we have created several new protocols. In addition to our standard disinfection and sterilization, we will be doing the following:
  • We are screening patients over the phone for symptoms or exposure, taking patients' temperatures, and having patients use hand sanitizer upon entering the office.
  • We will be scheduling extra time for each appointment for thorough office sanitation and to promote proper social distancing.
  • We ask that patients use a pre-procedural rinse which will eliminate a majority of bacteria and viruses prior to treatment.
  • All public areas will be disinfected routinely throughout the day, and all surfaces are treated daily with a 24hr treatment that eliminates bacteria and enveloped viruses (such as COVID-19)
  • The air in treatment and hygiene rooms is being filtered with HEPA air filtration units throughout the day.
  • We are limiting the use of the waiting room to ensure proper social distancing and patients are welcome to wait in their car if they are more comfortable doing so.
  • All treatment providers will be wearing masks when interacting with patients.

We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt as needed, and we hope to keep everyone healthy and safe through this trying period, and moving forward.
