Georgia Dental Care for Patients with Severe Anxiety

If you are looking for Georgia dental care for patients with severe anxiety, you have come to the right place! Approximately fifty percent of Americans have some level of fear about going to the dentist. Nine to fifteen percent of Americans avoid the dentist altogether because their fear is so severe. Many patients with mild to moderate anxiety and severe anxiety, panic disorder or dental phobia will avoid going to the dentist even if they are experiencing mouth or dental pain, tooth decay or even tooth loss. Avoiding the dentist leads to the need for even more dental work and increased fear. It is a vicious cycle!

Patients with severe anxiety, panic disorder or dental phobias do not respond to conservative techniques and typically cannot be treated safely in a dental office while they are conscious. Most often, general anesthesia administered in the safety of a hospital operating room is the best option and perhaps their only option for receiving the dental care they want and need.

Trusted Dentist Who Takes Severe Anxiety Cases

Dr. Kurtzman is the Atlanta dentist who takes severe anxiety cases. He treats patients with severe anxiety, panic disorder and dental phobia in specially equipped operating rooms at Wellstar Windy Hill and Kennestone Hospitals. In the hospital setting, general anesthesia is administered by a trained anesthesiologist. To ensure patients’ safety, their breathing and vital signs are monitored for the entire time they are unconscious.

Placing patients with severe anxiety, panic disorder and dental phobia under general anesthesia in a hospital setting enables Dr. Kurtzman to safely and painlessly provide these patients with the dental care they want and need. In many cases, Dr. Kurtzman can repair damage to teeth and gums caused by years of avoiding the dentist in just one day. Most patients return home the same day as their treatment.

Dr. Kurtzman and his staff personally make sure that each patient is completely at ease before, during and after any dental procedure. We strive to create a great experience for patients suffering from severe anxiety, panic disorder or dental phobia that will forever change the way they feel about visiting the dentist. Our hope is that their positive experience will prevent them from avoiding the dentist in the future.

If you or a patient in your practice suffers from severe anxiety, panic disorder or dental phobia, please contact the Dental Care for Patients with Severe Anxiety Experts at David Kurtzman, DDS today to get more information about sleep dentistry. We look forward to hearing from you.

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
