Qualifications and Experience
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.

He's a true professional and very skilled. I trust him implicitly with my dental health.
Very happy with Dr. Paesani and his staff. He answers all of my detailed questions in an expertly and patient way. And, he knows when I need to see a specialist in an area that he doesn't handle. I recommend his office highly.
A great dentist with a wonderful staff! My highest recommendation!
He is awesome and has a warm caring professional staff.
I love this office. Completely professional.
I'm new to the area and Dr. Paesani was recommended to me by my dentist in Chicago. I am so relieved to have moved halfway across the country and the standard of care I received was just as wonderful as the place I moved from!
Cleaning was a bit painful but manageable.
Love my dentist and his team!! Excellent customer service, dental cleaning and treatment! Not to mention -- I get wonderful answers to all my questions.
There are so many things I like about Dr. Paesani, but foremost a re the facts that he not only truly cares about not only my dental health but is warm and personable.
Dr. Paesani is easy to talk to and his staff is exceptional! His Front desk is proficient. His Hygienist is friendly and great with kids. His assistant is gentle and sincere and she takes the time to get to know you.
Very friendly, professional and skilled. Excellent office staff, too. Minimal wait time and is considerate of patient comfort.
Dr. Paesani is efficient and easily adjusted my partial bride. He encouraged me to let his office know if any further adjustment was needed.
Very informative, friendly, professional. Highly recommended.
Dr. Paesani and his staff have been nothing but pleasant, professional and good to my teeth. This was only my second time, but so far so great!
I'm a Nervous Nelly when it comes to pain, and past experiences with crowns hadn't helped to alleviate my weenie-ness. Dr. Paesani went the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable, numb, and understood what was going on. The heated, massaging dentist chair helped, too! Shout out to Dana, who assisted Dr. Paesani with my crown re-do and provided him with excellent assistance, and me with just the right amount of chit-chat while she took a master craftsman's time getting the temporary crown just right. Thanks to all.
Overall, amazing service. Friendly and kind staff. They're also very thorough. Highly recommend.
I was told I needed 3 fillings. His assistant was good-natured and kept me laughing, but Paesani was a jerk. He was resting his left hand inside my mouth and applied too much pressure. I winced and motioned for him to back off when he dug into a tooth too hard and he got an attitude with me. The hygienist understood and apologized on his behalf. The offended tooth caused almost unbearable pain until I got a root canal and a crown (from someone else, thank goodness) which almost tripled the total for the treatment. I have not been back since and my mouth is much happier.
Today was my 2nd appointment for a partial bridge fitting, the first was a week ago, yet when I met with Dr. Paesani it was like only 10 minutes and not a week had passed between his knowledge of my dental needs. He did not need to catch up on the purpose of my dental needs and my next appointment. He is courteous, friendly and professional in speaking to me, explaining how a partial bridge should fit properly. I highly recommend his dental work and knowledge.
Dr. Paesani explained today's procedure and the following appointment procedures and approx time of each appointment. He explained the purpose of each partial bridge design and materials used with his recommendation impartially so that I owned the decidion.
Very nice dental assistant. Dr. P is an excellent dentist.
Professional, friendly without being intrusive
There was some confusion on my use of ZocDoc. The system made it seem that I was coming in for an emergency instead of a routine check-up. I wouldn't be surprised if I clicked on the wrong option somewhere. Dr. Paesani and his staff were friendly and accommodating, switching contexts into a new patient exam to do comprehensive x-rays and schedule a follow up cleaning. Highly recommended.
Dr. Paesani was very welcoming and friendly. The entire visit was pleasant and efficient. Overall Dr. Paesani and his staff are great. I couldn't ask for more!
Dr. Paesani and his awesome staff made me feel comfortable and welcome especially while I was nervous for my appointment! I am happy I finally found a dentist that fulfills my medical needs as well as a team of people who can make appointments pleasant and enjoyable!
Dr Paesani was pleasant and got right to business. There was no talking over me while he worked and none of the ridiculous questions most dentists ask, which you can never answer because their hands are in your mouth. Diane, the dental hygienist was gentle and took her time to explain what she was doing step by step. Overall it was pleasant, quick experience.
