Later, Dr. Pathiyil attended dental school at the University of Pittsburgh College of Dental Medicine in Pennsylvania where he received his Doctor of Medical Dentistry (D.M.D.). His post-graduate career into Prosthodontics residency program was at the same university; where he honed his skills in comprehensive care for patients requiring implants, fixed, removable and complex restorative treatment while studying the latest innovations in digital dentistry and 3D printing technology.
