Prior to dental school, Dr. Eccker was a practicing mechanic and worked for the San Diego Padres. He just rebuilt a 2005 Suzuki RM250 and is always looking for another project. If you have a passion for motorcross/supercross you better extend your appointment because you two will be chatting for awhile!

He believes his passion for dentistry stems from his interest in mechanics, as he has found the two industries to be quite similar. In the office, Dr. Eccker is looking 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 in the office, Dr. Eccker enjoys are variety of hobbies including motocross, mechanics, and collecting rare bourbon!
