Brian Feeney, D.M.D.
It's no surprise that Brian Feeney loves to travel. Born in Bologna, Italy, he has since journeyed to many points around the globe. "I appreciate the melting pot of life," he says. "I particularly enjoy serving people of all backgrounds."
"I've found that trust is the key to successful patient relationships," Dr. Feeney says. "I try to do as much as possible to create an environment where patients can feel comfortable. I encourage them to take an active role in their treatment planning."
In 2001, Dr. Feeney received his post-Doctoral training in periodontics and implantology at the University of Maryland, College of Dental Surgery in Baltimore. There he met Dr. Passero, who at the time was on the schools volunteer faculty. "We realized we had instant synergy." Dr. Feeney says. "I knew we'd be a great fit, and we truly enjoy practicing together." Over the past decade the partnership has continued to strive with the focus being on exceptional patient care and comfort. "We are constantly evaluating new technologies that promise to improve our patients health; however, we will not incorporate these treatments into our practice until we have seen quality, evidenced based research proving the material or procedures validity."
In his post-Doctoral program, Dr. Feeney was involved with clinical based research in implantology and platelet rich plasma, human growth factors that can improve patients' healing response. "It's such an exciting time to be in this field," he says. "Rapidly advancing technologies are enabling us to serve our patients at unprecedented levels of excellence. I enjoy staying in step with current developments and sharing new knowledge with my patients."
While in school full time in Baltimore, Dr. Feeney also practiced part-time as a general dentist in Annapolis. In 1998 he received his D.M.D. degree from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine where he also completed an elective 18-month internship in anesthesiology and his B.A. degree from the University of Rochester. Through the course of his academic career, he garnered numerous awards and scholarships of scholastic excellence.
Dr. Feeney often lectures to local and national societies. Dr. Feeney is a current member of the American Academy of Periodontology, American Dental Association, Academy of Osteointegration, Fairfax County Dental Society, Northern Virginia Institute for Advanced Dental Education, Northern Virginia Implant Study Club, and the Omikron Kappa Upsilon Honorary Dental Society.
Dr. Feeney and his wife live in the Chesterbrook area of McLean. They enjoy spending time on the Delaware shore, traveling, golfing, snowboarding, hiking, cheering on the Washington Capitals, the New York Yankees and spending time with their two daughters and two Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
