Alabama Sedation Dentists

Is an Alabama sedation dentist right for you? Many Alabama dental patients are unable to receive dental care in a standard dental office environment. These special care dental patients include people with medical conditions who are unable to travel the dentist’s office or whose medical condition prevents them from receiving dental care at a dentist’s office. Other special care patients include developmentally or physically disabled patients, patients who have mild to severe dental phobia or anxiety, and patients with an uncontrollable gag reflex.

In addition, some patients are allergic to standard anesthesia and others do not respond to standard anesthetic techniques. These patients do not get numb in response to Novocain or similar anesthetics. Finally, some patients require very lengthy dental procedures or a large amount of work that is best performed at one time.

Hospital Sleep Dentistry

For all of these special care dental patients, hospital sleep and sedation dentistry offers an effective solution. Dr. David Kurtzman, DDS, has been practicing dentistry for nearly 30 years and is one of the elite few dentists in the southeastern United States qualified to provide sleep and sedation dentistry. Special needs patients from throughout the southeast, including Alabama, rely on Dr. Kurtzman and his caring staff to handle their dental needs.

Sleep and sedation dentistry refers to dental procedures performed while the patient is either fully sedated under general anesthesia or partially sedated in a drowsy or light sleep state. The level of sedation depends on the needs of each patient. For patients and procedures that require intravenous sedation or full anesthesia, Dr. Kurtzman performs the procedures in a specially equipped operating room at a local hospital assisted by surgical nurses and an anesthesiologist.

Dr. Kurtzman was professional and friendly as he and his staff always are. He explained everything clearly and provided steps for me to follow through. I have been seeing Dr. K for over 20 years and would not go to anyone else.

They work with you to find an appointment time that’s convenient. They send timely reminders. You’re welcomed and any needs are met. Dr. Kurtzman explain what the plan/procedure is for the appointment. He explains what he’s doing and answers questions. He discusses next steps or followup. He never makes you feel you’re asking dumb questions or rushing him. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Having recently moved to Marietta we were most concerned about leaving our medical professionals behind. Dr. Kurtzman and his team quickly allayed all our concerns. From simple cleaning to complex implant procedures they made it all seem effortless. Loved the atmosphere of the office and the people were truly cheerful and friendly and skillful.

I came to see Dr. K to fix a filling done by another provider. The filling had caused pain ever since it was done eight months prior and the other provider was unable to figure out why even after two follow-up visits. Dr. K determined that the filling was loose and replaced it. The replacement process was almost spa-like thanks to the relaxing gas and deft skills of Dr. K. Now, this filling fits perfectly and I can chew on that side of my mouth for the first time in eight months. Thank You, Dr. K!

I have been a patient of Dr. David Kurtzman for years, even before he opened his current office in Kennesaw. He and his dental hygienists provide professional and friendly service. Dr. Kurtzman is the best!

Great dentist and oral hygenist Laurie. Visits are almost fun. Have been going to Dr K for over 30 yrs. Where one dentist told him many years ago it was not worth trying to save my teeth Dr K ignored, worked with me, and I still have my teeth.

Hello all, Zanifer's family are all pleased with the care and results of her last visit. I am even more happy to receive confirmation that we are doing a very good job in maintaining her oral hygiene. My wife, even with her medical condition acknowledges the kindness from each of you. Thanks again and a Very Happy Mothers day to all the Mommy's. Kris
