This lecture series honors the late Dr. Stan Brown, an outstanding faculty member who taught in the Pediatric Division for over 50 years. Dr. Brown will always be remembered for inspiring both dental students and pediatric patients alike.

She taught in the Pediatric Division at Penn Dental Medicine and at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for over ten years. Dr. Wadenya has many publications focusing on topics such as dental materials as well as access to care for different populations. Additionally, she has published many children’s books on teeth and oral health. Currently, Dr. Wadenya works in private practice in Havertown, PA.
