The Children’s Dental Clinic is housed in a space generously donated by Dr. Gulia Omene in Paoli. We are open once a week on Thursdays by appointment only during the academic year.
When you first come to the clinic, you will be greeted by the clinic supervisor who also coordinates appointments and transportation. You will then be seen by the dentist for your treatment and care.
Caroline Sweeney, Clinic Supervisor
Ms. Sweeney is the Clinic Supervisor and will be the first friendly person you see or talk to. She is a parent of three children who attended Tredyffrin/Easttown District schools and has been involved with the Children’s Dental Clinic since 2004. Ms. Sweeney also has a nursing background which is helpful for running the clinic.
Dr. Bernadette Logan, Clinic Dentist
Dr. Logan graduated magna cum laude from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 1991 and completed her residency in general dentistry at West Virginia University in Charleston.
Since 1994 when Dr. Logan began service to the Children’s Dental Clinic, her involvement with dental access programs has expanded. Dr. Logan has served as co-chair of her local society’s Give Kids A Smile program since its inception in 2003. The program has grown to three annual treatment events to provide a dental safety net for indigent children in three counties. Through her GKAS program, Dr. Logan has had the opportunity to network with a community clinic in West Chester, Pennsylvania (Community Volunteers in Medicine), as well as area school hygienists, Head Start, and Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY).
Dr. Logan is an active member of her local, district, and PDA access to care committees, having served as chair at all three levels. She works hard to coordinate the efforts of state stakeholders, the Departments of Education and Health, as well as recognize and recruit fellow volunteers.
