Meet Dr. Keerthy

Dr. Keerthy’s passion for endodontics stems from his desire to relieve his patients’ pain while saving their natural teeth.  Improving his patients’ quality of life is one of Dr. Keerthy’s top priorities and the most gratifying part of his job.  He grew up in Rochester Hills, Michigan and graduated with distinction from the University of Michigan where he earned a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Biochemistry and Biopsychology, Cognition and Neuroscience.  His interest in dentistry led him to pursue his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine at Harvard University.  He continued his education and advanced specialty training, obtaining his general practice residency certificate at the Brooklyn Hospital Center Department of Dentistry, a certificate in Endodontics and a Master of Science in Oral Health Sciences at Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry.

He has completed several research studies which illustrate his commitment to advancing dentistry, awarding him the opportunity to present at the Harvard Research Day.  He has also won awards for his research at the Temple University School of Dentistry and won the Top 10 Resident Research Award at the AAE 2023.  In addition, he has been published in the Journal of Dental Education and presented at the AAE annual conference.

Dr. Keerthy shares his dedication to dentistry through his work volunteering with Bridge Over Troubled Waters to educate and help children get access to dental care.  He is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Association of Endodontists, the Massachusetts Dental Society and the Endo Inc.
