Florida Sedation Dentists

A Florida sedation dentist is an excellent dental care solution for patients suffering from dental anxiety or special needs dental patients. Few patients look forward to a trip to the dentist, but for some Florida dental patients it is virtually impossible for them to have even the most routine dental procedures performed in a traditional dental office setting. Such special needs patients include developmentally or physically disabled patients, or patients with medical conditions that preclude being seen in a dentist’s office.

A small percentage of the Florida population suffers from dental anxiety ranging from mild to severe that prohibits them from seeking dental care. Others have an uncontrollable gag reflex that makes traditional dental techniques very difficult and uncomfortable.

Hospital Sleep Dentistry

Fortunately, hospital sleep dentistry is an alternative for these and other special needs patients who cannot tolerate dental procedures using traditional anesthetics such as novocaine. Sleep and sedation dentistry is a specialized type of dentistry in which the dental procedure is performed while the patient is fully or partially sedated. Dr. David Kurtzman, DDS specializes in sleep and sedation dentistry.

Dr. Kurtzman has been practicing dentistry for nearly 30 years and has received extensive specialized training in sleep and sedation dentistry. He and his compassionate, caring staff have helped thousands of patients by providing comfortable, anxiety free, painless dental care with these advanced techniques. Most of these patients would otherwise have been unable to have had any dental care at all. In sleep and sedation dentistry, the patient is fully or partially sedated throughout the dental procedure.

Hospital Dental Care

For procedures or patients that require full, unconscious sedation, Dr. Kurtzman performs the hospital dental care at a local hospital in an operating room specially equipped for dental procedures while the patient is under general anesthesia. He is assisted by a fully qualified anesthesiologist and surgical nurses.

Other procedures can be performed using conscious sedation in which the patient is put in a very relaxed, drowsy state during the procedure. These patients often fall asleep during the procedure and have no memory of it when they wake up.

To find out more about how Dr. Kurtzman can help special needs dental patients using advanced sleep and sedation dentistry techniques, call our Sedation Dentist office today to schedule a consultation. We provide painless, anxiety free sleep and sedation dentistry to Florida including Jacksonville, Miami, and Tampa.

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
