Dentistry for Developmentally Disabled

Finding quality dentistry for developmentally disabled people is as easy as calling Dr. Kurtzman's dental office. Developmentally Disabled people suffer from a variety of dental problems just like everyone else. From cavities and gum disease to dental abscesses to pain - everyone requires good dental care and special attention. We are proud to provide dental care to people with special needs.

We realize that finding a good dentist who is highly experienced in effectively serving special needs clients can be a challenge. Dr. Kurtzman has over twenty (20) years experience working with the special needs and developmentally disabled communities.

Dr. Kurtzman handles patients with a variety of physical and mental limitations including patients with the following:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Down’s Syndrome
  • Fragile - X Syndrome
  • Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
  • Intellectually Disabled
  • Brain Stem Injuries

Due to a developmentally disabled person’s inability to be treated in a traditional dental setting, special needs patients are best treated in the safety and security of the Hospital Operating Room. While the patient is fully asleep the dentist and a specially trained assistant will repair and restore the patient’s mouth whether they suffer from gum disease or other dental problems.
