Special Medical Situations at the Dentist

Dr. Kurtzman's dental office is equipped to handle patients with special medical situations at the dentist. Some medical conditions make it dangerous for patients to be treated in a traditional dental office setting. In cases where an increase in stress and anxiety aggravates a medical condition special care is required. If the attempts at treatment can cause harm to the patient or dentist, special treatment is likewise indicated.

Conditions requiring special care include:

  • Serious heart disease
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Developmental disabilities
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Brain Stem Injuries
  • Dangerous reactions to local anesthetics

In these cases it is often necessary to use Oral Sedation to control anxiety and stress or General Anesthesia in the Hospital operating Room to make treatment possible.

Our Atlanta dental practice has worked with many patients who have special medical needs. Dr. Kurtzman has many years of experience working with patients who have special needs and he can help you with your needs.

Gosh these people are great. I’m extremely phobic and these people not only had me relaxed but had me laughing.best 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.
