Meet Dr. Ecker
Dr. David Eccker received his undergraduate degree in biology from San Diego State University. He then went on to earn his Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of Kentucky, graduating magna cum laude with honors. During his third year of dental school, Dr. Eccker was selected for a military scholarship through the US Army Reserves. Dr. Eccker has been actively involved in the reserves and received an award from the Lexington Medical Recruiting center for his involvement in helping medical and dental students understand what the Army could do for them. Additionally, Dr. Eccker was recognized by the University of Kentucky Department of Endodontics for excellence in endodontics. He believes his passion for dentistry stems from his interest in mechanics, as he has found the two industries to be quite similar.
Before dental school, Dr. Eccker was a practicing mechanic and worked for the San Diego Padres. He rebuilt a 2005 Suzuki RM250 and is always looking for another project. If you have a passion for motocross or supercross, you better extend your appointment because you two will be chatting for a while! At the dental office, Dr. Eccker looks forward to connecting with each of his patients on an individual level - he truly enjoys getting to hear everyone’s unique story! When he is not hard at work helping patients, Dr. Eccker enjoys a variety of hobbies, including motocross, mechanics, and collecting rare bourbon!
