Going into college, Dr. Keanna initially wanted to be a psychologist. However, a friend who dressed and acted like Tony Manero (John Travolta’s character) from Saturday Night Fever persuaded him to apply to dental school instead, believing it would be a better fit because of his love of science, healthcare, psychology, and working with his hands. Dr. Keanna decided to listen to his friend, and almost 40 years later, he couldn’t be happier with his choice.

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

After receiving his undergraduate degree in psychology from Trinity College in Hartford, CT, Dr. Keanna earned his dental degree from the Georgetown University School of Dentistry. Even though his dental education encompassed every facet of dentistry, he wanted further training and was accepted into a residency program at Castle Point Veteran’s Hospital in upstate New York. This was the turning point in his perception and understanding of health care in this country. This Veteran’s hospital was a spinal cord injury facility, and the horrors that he saw there have stayed with him and motivated him for over twenty years to only provide the very best care.

Over the years, Dr. Keanna has completed countless hours of continuing education and attended several courses through numerous professional organizations. He is also a current member of the:

  • International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology logo
  • Clinical Nutrition Certification Board logo
  • American College for the Advancement of Medicine logo
