Dofteana (Hungarian: Doftána) is a commune in Bacău County, Romania. It is composed of seven villages: Bogata (Bogáta), Cucuieţi (Kukujéc), Dofteana, Hăghiac, Larga (Lárga), Seaca and Ştefan Vodă.

The commune is situated around confluence between the Trotuş and Dofteana rivers, in a beautiful natural place. It was first attested in a document of 1436, issued by the hospodar Ştefăniţă, who donated to his adviser Babor Plopescu six villages on the Trotuş and Tazlău valleys, one of which was Dofteana, called Dohtana in that period.
