L. Michael Papadelias, D.M.D.

Dr. Mike Papadelias is a lifelong resident of Pensacola. He attended Pensacola Junior College and the University Of Florida. After graduating form the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1984, Dr. Mike began practicing dentistry with his father, Dr. A. L. (Tony) Papadelias, in Pensacola. Dr. Tony had been practicing in Pensacola since 1961 and was synonymous with the highest standards of ethics and dentistry in the area. His tutelage was instrumental in shaping the foundation of Dr. Mike’s approach to his patients, practice, and profession. In 1986 at the insistence of his father, Dr. Mike opened the first dental practice located in the Perdido area. Over the next few years the practice and the area grew large enough for it to become his primary office. By 1991 it became his only practice location and has remained so to this day.

In 1986 Dr. Mike was married to his beautiful wife Ann and together they raised two daughters, Sarah and Lexi, who both attended the University of Alabama for their undergraduate degrees. Lexi graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and is now pursuing her masters in robotics from Johns Hopkins University while working full time as an engineer at Universal Studios. Sarah graduated with a Classics Degree and continued on to graduate from the University of Florida College of Law.

Dr. Mike and his family enjoy snow skiing, snorkeling, boating, and travel.
