Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome to Alcoma Dental Associates, Your Dentist in Verona, PA

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.
