Dr. Michael Acierno, DDS
Dr. Acierno grew up on the northwest side of Chicago where he attended Notre Dame high school for boys. As a high school student at Notre Dame, he became involved in sports, theater and academics. After graduation he went on to attend Creighton university in Omaha Nebraska. He chose Creighton because of their strong healthcare graduate programs as well as their strong Jesuit background. He graduated from Creighton undergrad with a double major in Biology and Environmental Science. He then proceeded to graduate from Creighton University Dental school in 1999, where he obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Upon graduation, he decided to move back to the Northwest side of Chicago.
In 2002 he took over Dr. Stanley Borchers dental practice. Dr. Borchers practiced for over 25 years at his current practice and retired in 2002. He has two fantastic children. Dr. Acierno is very active in the surrounding community. He is an active member of the Edison Park Chamber of Commerce and participates in various charitable events. He is also very active at his alma mater Notre Dame High School. He also helps coach basketball and football at St. Eugene grade school and Norridge Park district.
He strongly believes in educating himself in all aspects of dentistry. He is continually taking hours upon hours of continuing education courses to keep up with the future of dentistry. This is not only a benefit to him but enables him to bring the latest information and techniques to his patients. He has been taught and will always follow the ideals of doing anything and everything for my patients. As a dentist, he will always put the patients well being first and will always strive to become a better dentist for you.

Sydney Charneski, DMD
Dr. Sydney Charneski grew up in Richfield, Minnesota with her parents and older sister. She attended Gustavus Adolphus College in southern Minnesota where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biology. While in college she was heavily involved in community service and organized several local events to help children stay active and practice healthy lifestyles.
In 2013, she headed to Illinois where she graduated dental school at Midwestern University in Downers Grove. Sydney continued her passion for helping others by participating in several community service events. She also met her fiancé in dental school, and they recently moved to the West Loop area. She loves exploring the city and experiencing everything it has to offer.
At a very young age, Dr. Sydney knew she wanted to pursue a career in dentistry. She says it’s the perfect combination of art and science. She loves helping people through dentistry and is so excited to be your dentist at Acierno Family Dentistry. She looks forward to providing outstanding care, listening to your needs, and is committed to the comfort and well being of her patients. She constantly strives to be better and cannot wait to meet you.
When Dr. Sydney is not doing dentistry or cheering on the Green Bay Packers (Sorry Bears fans!) she loves to do outdoor activities such as kayaking, cross country skiing, and golfing. She also loves to travel and relax by the lake during the summer months.

Dr. Tristan Lunsford
Hello, my name is Dr. Tristan Lunsford, and I am thrilled to be joining the team at Acierno Family Dentistry. I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan before attending Michigan State University. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology, then went on to earn my DDS from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. I have always loved visiting the Chicagoland area growing up and bring with me a passion for providing high-quality, individualized dental care to the diverse patients here.
I enjoy the opportunity to talk to patients from all walks of life and provide them with an important service and confidence in their smiles. I appreciate the attention to detail and rewarding results that can be seen immediately from providing dental care. I am proficient in restorative dentistry, fixed and removable prosthodontics, pediatric dentistry, emergency dental care, and am a certified Invisalign provider. I am also a member of the American Dental Association and love the lifelong learning opportunity that the dental field provides. Many patients see their dentist more than their doctor, and I am grateful not only for the relationships dentistry allows me to build with patients but also the opportunity to monitor patients’ overall health. I am excited to bring his relaxed, trust-centered approach to the practice.
