Following graduation Dr. O'Donnell spent three years as a resident at Long Island Jewish Hospital studying the clinical and surgical pathology of the oral cavity.

The Lake Placid Dental Clinic offers dental care for the entire family, and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. Adirondack Dental Service accepts most insurances, including Medicaid. Adirondack Health also provides a Mobile Dental Clinic service during the summer months. The concept behind the "clinic on wheels" is to serve residents of outlying communities where limited resources and travel are obstacles to receiving timely dental care. The Mobile Dental Clinic is a retro-fitted recreational vehicle that is fully registered, licensed and insured in New York State, as well as certified to provide dental care by the New York State Department of Health.
