Tracy, Front Office

an image of TracyHi there! My name is Tracy and I am Dr. Ackerman’s front office receptionist.  I have been a part of Dr. Ackerman’s team since 2007, and hope to be here for many more years.

Originally, I got into the dental profession as a as a registered dental assistant but I injured my wrist in a motorcycle accident that cut my career short.  That is when I transitioned into the front office.  Now that I have done both, I think this is where I was meant to be.  Lucky for me, I occasionally get to do both in this office.  I take my position in this office very seriously, but try to bring humor into my day every chance I get.

If there was one thing I could project to our patients and potential patients, it’s that I am here to help you.  I really like what I do and want to be the best at it, so just let me know what you need and I will do everything I can to make it happen.

Marcie, Registered Dental Assistant

an image of MarcieHi! My name is Marcie. I have been a registered dental assistant since 1998, and been with Dr. Ackerman since 2003. I am very lucky to have found such a wonderful place to work and truly believe this is my home away from home.

Since I was little, I always enjoyed going to the dentist and would have to say it was because of the wonderful and caring team that took such great care of me. That feeling stuck with me and I knew dentistry was what I was meant to do. I love that I can take part in helping to boost someone’s self esteem, by making their smile come out!

I know the dental office is not the most fun place to be, so I try to make your experience as comfortable and inviting as I can.
