Meet Dr. Ana Keohane



Dr. Ana Keohane Bio

Recognized as one of America’s Best Dentists 2018 Based on evidence of superior training, experience, continuing education and commitment to excellence by the National Consumer Advisory Board. Dentistry is in my heart. I first came to love the profession by watching my older sister practice in my home country of Colombia. I remember being overcome with pride as I watched my sister transform the lives of her patients; I knew that I wanted to follow in her footsteps.


I received my DDS with academic distinction from Universidad Metropolitana, Barranquilla, Colombia in 2000. I attended Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine graduating with Honors and receiving the Certificate of Merit by the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry.


After completing my DMD, I was appointed Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of General Dentistry in 2017 and in July 2018, I was promoted to Group Practice Leader guiding 36 students through their clinical coursework.


In private practice my passion is seeing children. I love to see children, who are often nervous, make that personal connection, gain their trust and develop a relationship. That trusting relationship not only helps ease them into treatment, but it helps them understand what they need to do to improve their dental health.I love empowering them to take control of their future. A beautiful smile is a priceless possession.


A beautiful smile is so important that in 2016 I obtained my certification as an Invisalign Provider. By offering this cutting edge, non-invasive treatment,I help teens and adults alike be proud when they smile, to laugh without being self-conscious. Its one of the best parts of my job.


To keep up to date with all the new changes and to offer the best to my patients I am a member of the Massachusetts Hispanic Dental Society, Massachusetts Dental Society and Massachusetts Public Health Association, Metropolitan Dental Society and the American Dental Education Association. I had the honorto receive a Certificate of Appreciation for valuable contribution to the Massachusetts Hispanic Dental Association.
