Dr. Keaney, D.M.D.

unnamedDr. Keaney is an experienced, caring general dentist dedicated to providing gentle and effective care to children and adolescents in her Arlington office. Dr. Keaney earned her dental degree from Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA in 2001. She then spent over a decade focusing on the dental needs of children at a pediatric/orthodontic office in Potomac, MD.  This experience instilled in her an appreciation for how rewarding it is working with children and inspired her to open her own practice closer to home.  Dr. Keaney and her staff view each patient and each family individually.  She takes the approach of being a partner with the parents when addressing the needs of her patients.  As a mother, she understands that each child has unique dental needs. Dr. Keaney is committed to continuing education and remaining aware of the latest advancements in oral health and dentistry.

Dr. Keaney is a Northern Virginia native.  She grew up in Alexandria, VA and currently lives in Arlington with her husband, Sean, their 2 daughters, and their dog.  Dr. Keaney and her family are frequent customers at local Farmer’s Markets and small businesses.  Dr. Keaney is an avid runner, having completed the Marine Corps marathon several times.  She also enjoys yoga, reading and vacationing with her family.

Ann Brown – Hygienist

Dentistry has been my passion since childhood. I have been working within the pediatric dental field for over 15 years.  After working as a dental assistant I decided to pursue a degree in dental hygiene.  I earned my Associates of Applied Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from Virginia Western Community College in 2008. It is rewarding for me to partner with patients to help them achieve optimum oral health. It is my goal to make coming to the dentist fun and fearless for children so that they may be confident receiving dental care in their adulthood. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children. I also enjoy running and cycling.
