Dentist in Oakmont, PA

Dr. Jason Choorapuzha

Born and raised in Southwestern, PA, Dr. Jason Choorapuzha grew up in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh, attended Central Catholic High School and graduated from Fox Chapel High School. He studied at the University of Pittsburgh on a full academic scholarship, earning a BS in Psychology and a BA in Philosophy. He has fond memories of rising extremely early in order to train and race as a coxswain on the prestigious University of Pittsburgh rowing club.

Oakmont dentist, Dr. Choorapuzha received his DMD from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, where he was honored to serve for two years as his class Vice President and then for two years as his class President. He was initiated into the prestigious Sigma Chapter of the Delta Sigma Delta dental fraternity and in his fourth year he received the Delta Dental Student Leadership Award.

Following dental school, Dr. Choorapuzha completed his General Practice Residency (GPR) at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center. During the one-year residency, he received top honors for his speech “Kidney Disease and the Dental Practitioner” at the Minnesota Dental Association’s Star of the North Meeting. It was also during this time that Dr. Choorapuzha met his wife, Lydia.

After working for three years for a non-profit dental group in Minneapolis, specializing in geriatric and special needs patients, Dr. Choorapuzha returned to Pittsburgh. He is enjoying getting to know the community and being a dentist in Oakmont. He resides in the North Hills with his wife and their young sons, Mark and Adam.

“When my 88 year old father had a painful tooth while we were visiting Oakmont late on a Friday afternoon, I called many dentists trying to get an emergency appt. Dr. Jason Choorapuzha called me back right away even though he was out of town. He suggested ways to make my father comfortable until he could see him Monday morning. Dr. Jason is now my father’s dentist and has been very kind, gentle and professional. He has experience with the elderly and it shows in how he deals with my father. His staff has been friendly and easy to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend this office.
