Georgia Dentist Who Treats Patients with Alzheimer’s

Are you looking for a Georgia dentist who treats patients with Alzheimer’s?  Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disease that causes brain cells to degenerate and die. This causes a steady decline in memory and mental function. Symptoms of Alzheimer’s may include difficulties with memory, disorientation, speaking and writing, thinking and reasoning, judgment and decision making, and planning and performing familiar tasks. Alzheimer’s is a debilitating disease and may also cause changes in a patient’s personality and behavior.

The symptoms discussed above make it difficult or even impossible to treat patients with Alzheimer’s in a traditional dental office setting. Most dental offices are simply not equipped to handle these special care patients in performing complex dental work.

Dental Care & Alzheimer’s

David Kurtzman, DDS provides a compassionate and safe environment for patients with Alzheimer’s to receive dental care in Atlanta and throughout the Southeast. Dr. Kurtzman and his staff are familiar with this disease, and have experience treating patients who suffer from it. Our office is specially equipped to handle special care patients, however, it is safer to treat most Alzheimer’s patients in a hospital setting under general anesthesia.

Dr. Kurtzman treats Alzheimer’s patients in specially equipped operating rooms at Wellstar Windy Hill and Kennestone Hospitals. In the operating rooms, patients are placed under general anesthesia by an Anesthesiologist or specially trained Anesthetist under a doctor’s supervision and monitored for the entire time they are receiving treatment. Treating Alzheimer’s patients in a hospital setting enables Dr. Kurtzman to provide them with effective, pain-free dental care while at the same time ensuring their safety.

David Kurtzman, DDS gladly accepts patients with Alzheimer’s who are referred from other dental practices. Referring these patients to Dr. Kurtzman enables them to receive the special care they require and removes the liabilities that often come with them from other dental practices. Once they are effectively treated, patients are sent back to their referring dental office for recall and recare.

If you, a friend or family member, or a patient in your practice has Alzheimer’s and requires dental care, please contact our Dentist Who Treats Patients with Alzheimer’s at David Kurtzman, DDS today to schedule an appointment. 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
