Meet The Doctors

Dr. Dave-0001

Dr. David Pascia

Hello, and welcome to our website! I’m Dr. David Pascia, but 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 to 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 America 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 help in Tampa. Most recently, I had the opportunity to donate dental services to Project Dental Care in Orlando, treating children in Florida’s foster care system as well as the time spent at the Saint Petersburg Free Clinic.

Outside of Dentistry, I enjoy a variety of hobbies and extracurricular activities. I truly enjoy pretty much anything that involves the outdoors and being on or near 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 another one of my 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 your dental needs with a caring, sincere spirit.

Thank you, and Welcome!

Dr. Dave

I went back to school and graduated from South Florida Community College in 2010 with an Associates in Applied Science in Dental Hygiene in which I became a hygienist at Pascia Dentistry. I truly enjoy all of my patients and I am very enthusiastic about my profession. I am happily married and blessed with a beautiful daughter, Kristalyn.

Kathleen, Registered Dental Hygienist

I started working for Pascia Dentistry in April 2021 and couldn’t be happier to be a part of this wonderful Dental Office! I started dental hygiene in 2010 and I love educating my patients on how to have a healthy mouth. I love getting to meet all my patients and establishing a long term relationship with them. I am originally from Canada but moved to St. Pete in 1980 – I love this beautiful city we call home! I am happily married to my husband for the past 18 years and am very grateful and thankful to God to be blessed with a happy, healthy son who is an absolute joy in our lives. He recently got a baseball scholarship and is off to college – we couldn’t be more proud!

As a recent “empty nester”, my husband and I are looking forward to expanding our horizons. We would love to try new restaurants, explore new places, and venture out to more of our Florida Springs. (Any great restaurant recommendations are appreciated!)

I can’t wait to meet you and work together to achieve and keep a healthy and happy smile!
