UPDATED 4/1/2020


  As of March 17th 2020, in response to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, Alcoma Dental Associates will be canceling all non-essential appointments until further notice. This abundantly cautious measure has been taken with the essential goal of keeping our patients, staff and community healthy.  If you are experiencing a dental emergency or if you need to be seen immediately, there will be a doctor available to address your concerns.  Please call the office at 412-795-5600, where you will be prompted to the emergency line.  Our office plans to follow procedure guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Dental Association (ADA) as well as the recommendations for social distancing urged by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Allegheny County.  This is an evolving situation, and we will be updating our protocol as new information becomes available, please check back for any changes.  Thank you for your understanding.


We are a modern, family friendly, general dentistry office located conveniently between the Verona and Penn Hills suburbs of eastern Pittsburgh. Dr. James Petraitis has been voted as one of Pittsburgh’s best dentists by Pittsburgh Magazine and Alcoma Dental Associates won a readers choice award from the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. 

Dr. Petraitis was one of the first dentists in the Pittsburgh area to adopt CEREC technology (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics).  CEREC has allowed him and his team to use CAD/CAM technology to fabricate porcelain restorations onsite (crowns and veneers) in only one appointment! This removes the need for using an outside dental lab, which drastically cuts down on incorrectly fitting restorations and allows for better fitting longer lasting restorations.
