Dentistry for People with Developmental Disabilities

Finding quality dentistry for people with developmental disabilities is as easy as calling Dr. Kurtzman's dental office. People with developmental disabilities 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 clients with special needs 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 challenges 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 person with developmental disabilities' inability to be treated in a traditional dental setting, people with special needs 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.

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.
