Dr. Shira Ackerman attended NYU College of Dentistry where she was inducted as a member of the prestigious OKU Honors Society. She graduated with her D.D.S. degree and the E. J. Bushee Award for Academic Excellence and Leadership.
Motivated by her love for bringing relief to patients in pain while helping them maintain their natural teeth, Dr. Ackerman enrolled in Texas A&M’s rigorous post-doctoral residency in Endodontics. During her residency, Dr. Ackerman became fascinated by the ways cutting edge technology can be used to improve patient care. She decided to pursue research in this area and received the AAE Foundation award for the top-scoring resident research proposal in the nation. Her research was published in the Journal of Endodontics (45:5) and has been cited in the premier endodontic textbook Cohen’s Pathways of the Pulp (12th edition).
Dr. Ackerman loves the everyday challenge involved in performing intricate dentistry while at the same time keeping the patient’s comfort and experience at the forefront of her mind. In recognition of her work, Dr. Ackerman has been inducted as a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics, an acknowledgment of the highest level of achievement in the field. Dr. Ackerman volunteers as part-time faculty at Texas A&M College of Dentistry. She is involved in her local and national dental societies including the AAE, ADA, TDA, NTDS, DFW Endodontic Society, and the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity.
When not involved in patient care, you will likely find Dr. Ackerman exploring the local trails with her husband and three adventurous children.
