Meet The Doctors

David T. Pascia, D.M.D.

David T. Pascia, D.M.D.

Hello, and welcome to our website. I’m Dr. David Pascia. Most of my patients call me Dr. Dave. I was born and raised in our very own Saint Petersburg. I attended Northside Christian High School and went on to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. After graduating from Samford, I moved back to Florida and completed my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from the University of Florida College of Dentistry in 2002. 

Go Gators! I believe that we never stop growing and learning in life. As a result, I regularly attend post-graduate courses in all aspects of dentistry,including those in Cosmetic Dentistry and Restorative Dentistry. I am an active member of the American Dental Association, West Coast Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, and Pinellas County Dental Association. I chose dentistry as a profession because I enjoy the challenge of serving those that are in need. My Caring and Compassionate personality helps me excel in this area.The skills and education that I have received allow me to help patients dentally in a calm, caring environment. 

I enjoy donating my time and dental abilities in a variety of ways, including my involvement with the Pinellas County “Give Kids a Smile” program.I have also been able to serve those with dental needs through the statewide Missions of Mercy event held in Tampa. Most recently, I had the opportunity to donate dental services to Project Dentist Care in Orlando, treating children in Florida's foster care system as well as time spent at the Saint Petersburg Free Clinic.

Outside of Dentistry, I enjoy a variety of hobbies and extracurricular activities. Pretty much anything that involves the outdoors and the water appeals to me including: boating, fishing, free diving, hunting, and daily exercise. My family and I attend New Testament Baptist Church located in Largo, FL. Cooking is also one of the passions that I enjoy daily and whenever time allows.

I am happily married to my wife Nikki, and have two sons, Dylan and Cooper. I also have a lovable Labrador, Keira.

I am optimistic that I will be able to meet all of your dental needs with a caring, sincere spirit.

Thank you, and Welcome!
Dr. Dave
