Dr. Acosta has a passion for dentistry that extends outside of the office. He has volunteered his time over the years. Currently he is an active member of the Polk County Dental Association, West Coast Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.
He, along with his staff, participates in community education programs such as Dental Health Month awareness, and local company and residential health fairs.

He is a huge advocate for learning and education not just for his staff but also his patients.
Dr. Acosta is married and has two sons. They enjoy the outdoors, playing Lacrosse, and being with friends and family. He also enjoys early morning bike rides, so if you see him, wave!!!
Update: He officially has an empty nest, maybe you should talk to him for a while!
