Volunteer/Service Experience

Mission trip to Honduras to perform free dental work


Dr. Ackah has been practicing dentistry since 2009. After dental school, he was one of three graduates selected for residency at the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System. He eventually moved to the Houston area to escape the brutal winters of the Northeast. He loves exploring all that Houston has to offer. As a native Ghanaian, he grew up watching and enjoying soccer, which has developed into the passion he has for the sport today. Along with soccer, he also enjoys football and basketball. He also loves cooking, and says if he did not enjoy dentistry so much, he would consider being a chef.
