MEET DR ANA MARÍA (DR ANI) HERRERA PRINCIPAL DENTIST

“Ever since I was little, I always enjoyed doing crafts, and at school the sciences always fascinated me. I love that dentistry brought my passion for science and art together. It just felt right that I pursued my dream of becoming a dentist and have enjoyed every day of my professional career” says Dr Ana Maria – often called Dr Ani by her patients.

Driven by a Desire to Help Others

Compassionate and caring, Dr Ani loves to help others. “Dentistry gives me the opportunity to take people out of pain, to help them improve their oral health and also their smiles, and simultaneously boost their confidence.”

Before joining the Dental Hub Geelong team, Dr Ani worked in Melbourne, Point Cook and Geelong. She has loved getting to meet her patients and their families. “Seeing a child grow, or a young adult become more confident with their new dental situation, is what gets me out of bed in the morning.”

Education & Professional Development

To prepare for her career as a dentist, Dr Ani earned a Bachelor of Dental Science at one of the best dental schools in Colombia, South America. She registered in 2012 with an Australian Dental Council certificate.

Dr Ani has a particular interest in root canal therapy, which she considers to be a highly rewarding field of dentistry. In addition to taking more continuing professional development courses in endodontics, Dr Ani has also trained in the following:

Life Outside the Practice

When Dr Ani leaves her patients at the end of the day, she enjoys spending time with her family.

“Prior to my amazing son Tomas entering our life a few years ago, we loved to travel.” When he’s older, Dr Ani looks forward to taking him on some fun trips to Disneyland. “I also hope to instil in my son the diversity of culture that Australia and my homeland Colombia have, so that he grows to know and love both.”

Dr Ani also loves music, which allows her to relax and let go from her busy work schedule. Every now and then, when she has some time to spare, Dr Ani loves to sing and play the Spanish guitar.
