Dr. Michael Komoroski, DMD
Dr. Komoroski knew he was going to be an orthodontist when he was in second grade. As a child, he had extensive dental treatment where orthodontics was of great benefit to him. Here is a photo of the chess set that Dr. K and his father used to play chess during the many hours spent waiting for the orthodontist (9 years). Some of Dr. Komoroski's fondest memories are the times when his mother and father took him to his appointments - it really was quality time. In return, Dr. Komoroski decided to dedicate his career to delivering the highest quality of orthodontic care to each and every patient.
Dr. K is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and the School of Dental Medicine. In keeping with his family's history of serving our country, Dr. Komoroski served in the United States Air Force, completing a one year general dental residency, followed by two years active duty as a general dental officer. Following his service, Dr. Komoroski completed his orthodontic specialty training at the renowned Eastman Dental Center, now part of the University of Rochester in upstate New York.
Currently, Dr Komoroski is a Clinical Instructor of Dental Medicine in the General Practice Residency Program and provides orthodontic lectures to the Oral Maxillofacial Residents at West Penn Allegheny General Hospital. He enjoys the learning process with the residents while reinforcing the commitment that learning is a lifelong process.
A native of the Pittsburgh-North Hills area, Dr. Komoroski returned to the area after his training and began his private practice locally in 1992. He is happily married and is raising a daughter in the North Hills. In his free time, Dr. Komoroski likes to kayak with his family and work on the never ending "to do"list at home.
