Preventative & Health Oriented Services

Preventative and health oriented services include dental and periodontal cleanings, application of preventive medications and barriers to decay, home care education and training, diet counselling and identification of special devices to promote health.

Reports and studies have shown definitive links between dental diseases and certain medical conditions including heart disease. Since over 80% of all oral and dental diseases are preventable, we work with our clients to teach and support them in improving and sustaining their dental health.

We take pride in educating our clients about the importance of maintaining good health through preventive dentistry. We will thoroughly instruct you in the most effective ways of keeping your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy.

How Can Preventative Dentistry Benefit You?

Are wondering how preventative dentistry can benefit you? Prolonging times between dental visits can make small problems turn to BIG ones that are more difficult to fix. Regular checkups and cleanings help prevent the problems before they start or spot them while they are still small.

Reducing the amounts of sugar, starch and carbonated beverages you consume also goes a long way in preventing and reducing dental problems.

Preventive dentistry is just that – dentistry designed to prevent big problems.

Our Thorough Examinations

Dental Examination:

We examine your teeth for decay, cracks and damage that may show dangerous or destructive conditions.

Oral Cancer Examination:

The face, head, neck and mouth are examined for any signs or symptoms of disease.

Periodontal Examination:

Jaws, gums and parts of the mouth that support the teeth are examined for health and proper function.

Bite Evaluation:

The relationships of the jaws and teeth are examined, tested and evaluated for those with problems associated with poor or destructive bites (headaches, sensitivity to temperature, pain while chewing, broken teeth, etc).

Cosmetic Evaluation:

We carefully analyze the appearance of your teeth and explore ways to improve and enhance smiles.

Periodontal Disease & Cardiac Disease

Studies have linked periodontal disease and cardiac disease.  Periodontal disease may actually trigger cardiac disease. When you practice preventative dentistry, you may be preventing cardiac disease. Maintaining a healthy diet coupled with good dental hygiene are important aspects of preventive dentistry.

In addition, it is imperative for patients to undergo a complete dental exam because this can help catch potential dental problems. Even though you may not be experiencing painful dental problems at the moment, and you haven't gotten your teeth cleaned in a while, this may be the perfect time to schedule a dental appointment.

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.
