The Family Health Clinic of Barnes-Kasson Hospital is pleased to announce the return of dentist, Dr. Russell Swetter. Dr. Swetter was the original dentist when the Dental Unit of Barnes-Kasson opened in July, 1978. For the past couple of decades he has maintained two successful private practices in Clifford and New Milford, PA, which he will continue to operate.
Dr. Swetter grew up in Clifford and is a graduate of Mountain View High School. He went on to attend the University of Scranton and the Temple University School of Dentistry where he finished in the top 10% of his class. He was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the National Honor Society in Dentistry. Still a resident of Clifford, Dr. Swetter is married and has two children. For the past 20 years he has worked closely with his wife, Cherie (pictured left), who works as his assistant at his private practices and will continue to do so at B-K. When not working, Dr. Swetter is an avid motorcyclist and skier, both snow and water.
Dr. Swetter is a great addition to the dental staff. Along with Dr. Charles Brown, the Dental Unit is able to offer a full range of dental services including examinations, emergency treatment, full and partial dentures, digital imaging, cosmetic dentistry, and more. The Dental Unit accepts a wide variety of insurances and low-income patients may be eligible for our Dental Charity Care Program. Dr. Swetter is currently accepting new patients. Anyone wishing to schedule an appointment with him can call the Dental Unit at (570) 853-3883.
