Founded in 1974, PDA Dental Group has served thousands of patients in the greater Boston area. Some of our doctors have been with the practice since the beginning, and have had the pleasure of seeing past pediatric patients return with their own children and as patients!

A Brief History
In November 1974, while serving as an Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatric Dentistry and Dentist-in-Chief of the Tufts Dental Facilities for Persons with Special Needs, Dr. Joseph P. O’Donnell started a part-time practice of pediatric dentistry in Winchester. The office was very small—just two dental chairs—and was only open two weekday afternoons and Saturdays. Dr. O’Donnell had one employee—a dental assistant who also served as a secretary. In early 1975, he hired his first hygienist, Bea Wheaton, who remains as a principal member of the PDA staff.
