Dr. Michael J. Paesani, DMD

Dr. Michael J. Paesani grew up in western Maryland near Deep Creek Lake, MD.  After graduating from Southern Garrett High School, he went on to study Biochemistry at Western Maryland College, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude.  In addition to recognition for overall academic excellence, he also received several distinguished honors and awards including induction into Phi Beta Kappa – a prestigious honor society whose past members include 17 US Presidents and 39 Supreme Court Justices.   Dr. Paesani was also inducted into Beta Beta Beta – the premiere biology honor society in the United States.  Dr. Paesani then chose to pursue his graduate education at The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, his first choice institution to entering into his selected field of dentistry.

After four years of preparation and hard work, he decided that a general practice residency would provide the advanced training necessary to deliver the best possible care to his patients.  The industry-praised Veterans Affairs Medical Center in West Palm Beach, FL gave Dr. Paesani the opportunity to further expand his skill set in several phases of dentistry including root canal therapy, dental implants, oral surgery, and the treatment of medically compromised patients.  Dr. Paesani was able to effectively utilize his skills at Davie Dental, a family oriented private practice in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Looking for an opportunity to move closer to his hometown, Dr. Paesani met with Dr. Lawrence Banker about his thriving practice near Arlington, VA, as Dr. Banker was beginning his transition into retirement. The two quickly discovered that they shared similar philosophies on their conservative approaches to patient treatment, with a significant emphasis on long-term patient care. In September 2012, Dr. Paesani relocated to the greater-Washington, DC area, and began practicing full-time in Falls Church, VA with Dr. Banker.
