Georgia Dentist Who Treats Patients with Asperger’s

Finding a Georgia dentist who treats patients with Asperger’s can be a challenge. Asperger’s is an autism spectrum disorder that causes patients to have difficulties with social interaction. Symptoms of Asperger’s include poor communication skills, obsessive or repetitive routines and physical clumsiness.

For many patients with Asperger’s, it is difficult or even impossible to be treated in a traditional dental office. For these patients, treatment in a traditional dental office setting may cause anxiety and aggravate symptoms.

Dr. David Kurtzman has worked hard to create a practice that provides safe, effective, pain-free care for patients with Asperger’s. Our office is specially equipped to accommodate special care patients, however, it is safer to treat some patients with Asperger’s in a hospital setting. For these patients, Dr. Kurtzman provides dental treatment, including complex dental work, in specially equipped operating rooms at Wellstar Windy Hill and Kennestone Hospitals under general anesthesia.

Compassionate Dental Care & Asperger’s

Dr. Kurtzman provides Atlanta dental care for Asperger’s patients. In the hospital setting, patients with Asperger’s are either sedated or placed under general anesthesia by a trained anesthesiologist and monitored during the entire time they are receiving treatment. This enables Dr. Kurtzman to provide effective, pain-free care while at the same time ensuring patients’ safety.

Dr. Kurtzman gladly accepts Asperger’s patients referred from other dental practices. In fact, patients with Asperger’s and other developmental disabilities travel as far as South Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee to see Dr. Kurtzman. Many dentists simply do not have the time, resources or experience needed to effectively treat Asperger’s patients. Referring these patients to Dr. Kurtzman ensures they get the special care they need and can free up other dentists’ time to treat the patients they serve best. Once patients are treated by Dr. Kurtzman, they are sent back to their referring office for recall and recare.

If you, a loved one, or a patient in your practice has Asperger’s Syndrome and is in need of dental treatment, please contact our Dentists Who Treats Patients with Asperger’s at David Kurtzman, DDS to schedule an appointment. We look forward to working with 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
