Cleanings & Checkups

Enjoying the benefits of excellent oral health is easier with preventive dental care. Along with routine home oral hygiene, regular checkups and cleanings are vital to prevent dental problems. Dr. David Kurtzman and our team want to help all our patients achieve their best smiles and we recommend cleanings and checkups at least twice a year for stellar oral health.

Even if you are meticulous in your home oral care routine, professional cleanings are necessary for the best level of oral health. Brushing and flossing can remove most plaque and bacteria that can cause decay or gum disease, but not all. Professional cleanings at least twice a year remove any plaque or tartar that may have built up in the crevices around your teeth. This can help prevent gum disease and other oral health issues. There is nothing that feels better than freshly cleaned and polished teeth.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

The second part of your routine preventive care is your checkups. This includes the periodontal exam the hygienist will perform to check the health of your gums and your comprehensive exam with Dr. Kurtzman. During your exam, Dr. Kurtzman will physically examine your teeth and review your x-rays. He will check for any signs of decay, damage or infection and offer treatment solutions. During your exam, feel free to ask any questions you may have regarding treatments he suggests or about elective procedures we offer that you have been considering, like cosmetic or restorative dentistry.

Another service we offer as part of our preventive care is oral cancer screenings. Dr. Kurtzman can examine the soft tissues of your mouth to look for any changes that could be the early signs of oral cancer. Make sure to discuss this option when you come in for your next checkup and cleaning. Contact our office today to schedule your next visit to our office in Marietta.

Did a fantastic job with my teeth. Would recommend to anyone, unless you're on a budget.

Hannah Jones

Gosh these people are great. I’m extremely phobic and these people not only had me relaxed but had me teeth cleaning ever.

RT Morris-Bodner

Absolutely a great dentist and staff. I've had 2 crowns, implant and fillings and everything is always perfect. Dr. Kurtzman makes you feel comfortable, especially if you're nervous at the dentist, and his work is amazing, no problems at all. Highly recommended, you can feel very confident going here.

Lynne Satterfield

Best dentist I've ever had in my 52 years on earth. Staff is very friendly, always accommodating. Dr Kurtzman takes the time to TALK to you which is rare these days. I have to be put under for dental work and he takes his time to do things properly. I highly recommend!!

Tim Bright

Amazing compassion and attention to client care. I've been injured by two previous dentists in the last 20 + years. Caused quite the dental phobia. Dr. Kurtzman and his staff understood this and went out of their way to years worth the dental work in 4 visits. Can not say enough about what a treasure I have found.

Sherie Wilson

I've been going to Dr. Kurtzman for many, many years and consider he and his staff to be exceptional. When I started going to Dr. K in the early 90's, I lived in Marietta. I now live in Roswell, but would not even consider seeking a dentist closer to my home. His practice is worth the drive. Dr. K uses technology well to communicate making the scheduling and keeping of appointments easy - get appointment reminders via text and confirm them this way as well. Dr. K and his wonderful staff keep up on the latest techniques in dentistry and keep constant vigilance on my comfort while visiting their office. Everyone there has great communication skills and listens effectively.
