Dr. Shana Dean

Originally from Russellville, Kentucky, Dr. Shana Dean received a Bachelor of Science in biology and chemistry from Western Kentucky University before earning her Doctor of Dental Medicine from University of Louisville School of Dentistry. Dr. Dean is a member of the American Dental Association, Kentucky Dental Association and the Louisville Dental Society. She credits her childhood dentist and college career counselor with influencing her to become a dentist. What she loves most about dentistry is helping her patients feel great about their smile.

She also enjoys traveling, board games, trivia nights, watching soccer and basketball, and eating tacos, which she could do “all day, every day.”
