Dr. Heather O'Keefe is excited to be a part of the team at Diamond Head Dental and looks forward to continuing to provide comfortable and quality dental care for the community of Squamish.
Dr. O'Keefe grew up in Kelowna. She then moved to the coast to attend the University of British Columbia, where she completed her Bachelor of Science and Dental degrees. After graduating in 2008, she worked as a locum dentist on the coast and in the Kootenays, which allowed her to gain valuable experience in all aspects of dentistry. Following this she settled into her other current practice in Kitsilano where she has worked since 2010. She and her husband moved to Squamish in 2013, where she has lived and also worked since. Dr. O'Keefe finds her heart is at home in the friendly and vibrant town of Squamish, and particularly enjoys the people,
natural beauty, and outdoor recreation.
Committed to staying current with the latest techniques and technologies, Dr. O'Keefe frequently attends courses and has been a member of various study clubs. For the past 6 years she has received hands-on training as a member of the Vancouver Perio Pros Study Club. She also has advanced training in Invisalign.
When she's not in the office, you can probably find Dr. O'Keefe adventuring with her husband, snowboarding in Whistler or exploring the mountain bike trails of Squamish.
