Georgia Dentist Who Treats Patients with Ehlers-Danlos

Are you looking for a Georgia dentist who treats patients with Ehlers-Danlos? Cutis Hyperelastica or “Ehlers-Danlos” is an inherited group of disorders that affects connective tissues. Connective tissues support the bones, blood vessels and other organs. Symptoms may include hypermobile joints and highly elastic, extremely fragile skin. Patients with Ehlers-Danlos often bruise easily and can have abnormal scarring. Serious forms of Ehlers-Danlos can cause blood vessels to rupture and can cause internal bleeding, stroke and shock.

Issues with bruising, scarring and bleeding make it very difficult and even unsafe for many patients with Ehlers-Danlos to receive complex dental treatment in a traditional dental office setting. Most dental offices simply are not equipped to handle these special care patients.

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

Trusted Dental Care & Ehlers-Danlos

For safe, compassionate Atlanta dental care for Ehlers-Danlos patients, call Dr. Kurtzman’s dental office. In the hospital setting, patients are placed under general anesthesia by an Anesthesiologist or specially trained Anesthetist under a doctor’s supervision. To assure the patient’s safety, the Anesthesiologist or Anesthetist monitors their health and breathing while they are under general anesthesia. Treating these special care patients in a hospital setting with close monitoring enables Dr. Kurtzman to provide them with effective, pain free dental care while at the same time ensuring their safety.

Dr. Kurtzman gladly accepts Ehlers-Danlos patients referred from other dental practices. In fact, patients with Ehlers-Danlos and other disorders travel as far as South Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee to see Dr. Kurtzman. 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 Ehlers-Danlos and is in need of dental treatment, please contact our Dentists Who Treats Patients with Ehlers-Danlos 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
