Dr Michael Acierno

Thank you for choosing our practice for your dental health needs.  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

I grew up on the northwest side of Chicago where I attended Notre Dame high school for boys.  As a high school student at Notre Dame, I became involved in sports, theater and academics. 

After graduation I went on to attend Creighton university in Omaha Nebraska.  I chose Creighton because of their strong healthcare graduate programs as well as their strong Jesuit background.  I graduated from Creighton undergrad with a double major in Biology and Environmental Science. 

I then proceeded to graduate from Creighton University Dental school in 1999,  where I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.  Upon graduation i decided to move back to the Northwest side of Chicago. 

In 2002 I took over Dr. Stanley Borchers dental practice.  Dr. Borchers practiced for over 25yrs at my current practice.  He retired in 2002.  I am married and have two fantastic children whom are 6yrs and 13yrs old.

I am very active in the surrounding community.  I am an active member of the Edison park chamber of commerce and participate in various charitable events.  I also am very active at my alma mater Notre Dame high school.  I also help coach basketball and football at St. Eugene grade school and Norridge Park district.

I am a member of Chicago Dental Society, Illinois Dental Society, the American Dental Association Sleep Disorder Association and a member of the Arcolian Italian Dental Arts Society. For the last five years i have been a mediator for the Chicago Dental Society.  As a mediator I settle disputes between patients and dentists.

I strongly believe in educating myself in all aspects  of dentistry.  I am continually taking hours upon hours of continuing education courses to keep up with the future of dentistry. This is not only a benefit to me, but enables me to bring the latest information and techniques to my patients.  I have been taught and will always follow the ideals of doing anything and everything for my patients.  As a dentist I always put the patients well being first and will always strive to become a better dentist for you.
