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.

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 is married and 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.

Dr. Marianna Goetz, DDS
Dr. Marianna Goetz grew up in a small town in Northern Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes! She attended the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul Minnesota and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience. After graduation she worked in the Diagnostic and Biological Science neuroscience pain research center at the University of Minnesota and became a published scientist.
From there, she went on to attend the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Throughout dental school she was involved with numerous community volunteer groups, one of which was called Give Kids a Smile. She spent four years planning and organizing this event and found it so rewarding to see all the smiling children after they saw the dentist each year.
After graduation she moved to Chicago with her husband and has loved their experiences here. She is so excited to have joined the Acierno Family Dentistry team as she strongly believes in our philosophy of patient centered care. Her focus is providing high quality dentistry while keeping your overall health as a priority.
In her free time she enjoys spending time with her husband and their extended families, enjoying the lakes (skiing, fishing, boating), traveling, biking, and exploring Chicago. She is also involved in various dental causes such as the annual Oral Cancer Walk.
