Healing the Streets

Dr. Pave offers asphalt restoration services, utilizing eco-friendly and innovative HEATWURX® asphalt repair technology. The HEATWURX® method provides increased durability for any asphalt road or parking lot at a much lower cost than traditional repair methods. Our infrared heating system reheats existing asphalt to allow cracks and holes to seamlessly fuse together.



Dr. Pave is your number one resource for all your paving needs. We are HEATWURX® certified contractors and use their patented electric infrared asphalt repair equipment to deliver durable, long-lasting and seamless repairs. We can also provide traditional paving services as needed.

The equipment and process we use is eco-friendly and sustainable. By re-using the existing asphalt as our primary inventory source, we provide an environmentally sound restoration experience without having to go the the batch plant and import hot mix. Unlike other infrared repair services, our process uses electric heat, not propane, which helps to reduce CO2 emissions.

Pricing can range from $150 to $300 per repair depending on the application and volume, and we offer a guarantee on the performance of the repair. Traditional “patching outfits” often do not. Contact us today for a free quote.


Dr. Pave primarily uses the HEATWURX®  patented asphalt repair process. The in-place asphalt repair method actually “heals” the damaged road surface, seamlessly fusing with the surrounding surface and preventing recurring repairs.

With this method, there is no shrinking and expanding “patch” that usually requires repeated and frequent re-patching. The process, which uses recycled asphalt, provides considerable value because of its durability, sustainability and reduced lifetime cost.


Dr. Pave, headquartered in Gardena, California, is the leader in electric infrared asphalt restoration in southern California. The company was founded in 2011 by Dave Dworsky and his business partner, Mario Costa, after the sale of Dworsky Companies, a mixed use services company. With over 2,500 clients throughout the region, they decided to work together to offer asphalt restoration services to municipalities and the commercial sector.

Dave brings 30 years experience in providing commercial services, and Mario brings 28 years experience in the building services industry. Dr. Pave is affiliated with MSA organizations throughout California and the Building Owners and Managers Association of California (BOMA). They are also a licensed contractors.


DAVE DWORSKY, Chief Executive Officer

Few people embody the entrepreneurial spirit like Dave Dworsky. For nearly 30 years, he has been buying, operating, and selling businesses. Through his company, Dworsky Partners, he assists small businesses to grow and prosper with a variety of strategic alternatives.

As the CEO of many successful companies, such as Dr. Pave, he understands the importance of client communication and does what it takes to maintain flexibility. Dave brings his passion and determination into every business venture.

MARIO COSTA, Operations Manager

Mario Costa was born and raised in Huntington Beach where he currently resides with his wife, Louanne Costa, and their 16-year old son. Mario has shown leadership and motivation with every company he has created, and now that he is the President of Dr. Pave, we have the great honor of experiencing his drive and vigor for a successfully run business.

When Mario is away from work, he spends time with his friends and family. He is also a great member of his community where he has coached youth sports for 10-years. He also loves the beach and watching sports.

Mario has many years of experience in running his own business, and he knows the asphalt industry better than many. We are grateful to have him as the president of Dr. Pave.
