Dr. Peter Passero, DDS
Peter Passero knew at the age of 12 where his life was going. "I realized my calling when I was sitting in pain in the dentist's chair," he remembers.
Today, Dr. Passero relentlessly pursues the better way in dentistry. His practice with Dr. Feeney is devoted to excellence in periodontics and implants and is widely lauded as one of the best in the region. The practice is devoted to enduring excellence in patient care and innovations in practice technology. Additionally, he helped found and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Northern Virginia Dental Clinic, an award winning indigent care facility in our area.
Continuing the tradition of Catholic education, he attended Marist College in Poughkeepsie; then went on to Georgetown University, receiving his D.D.S. in 1972. After two years of private practice in general dentistry, Dr. Passero decided to specialize in periodontics. He received his periodontal post-Doctoral training at the University of Maryland, School of Dentistry, in Baltimore. Today, he's on the faculty of the University, where he volunteers his time to the Department of Periodontics. "It's my contribution back to the school that gave me the greatest gift - my education," he says. Dr. Passero is an active member of the ADA, AAP, AO, NVDS, FCDS, NVIS and the Northern Virginia Institute for Advanced Dental Education.
Dr. Passero has been gratefully married to his wife Maria for over 35 years. Today, Maria manages a woman's clothing store in Bethesda. The pair has two children, Kimberly, a dentist, wife and mother in practice in McLean, Virginia and Kevin who is a Naturopath (Alternative Medicine Physician) in Annapolis, Maryland.
Dr. Passero grew up in Queens, NY. In his formative years, he built model airplanes and competed in Model airplane shows. Attending high school at St. John's Prep, he played trumpet in high school band and was on the swimming, basketball, and track and field teams. His brother Julius, introduced him to bicycling - a sport Dr. Passero now loves as much as snow skiing.
