Georgia Dentist Who Treats Patients with Physical Injuries

If you need a Georgia dentist who treats patients with physical injuries, you have come to the right place! Physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain and brain stem injuries can make it uncomfortable, painful or even impossible for patients to sit in a dentist’s chair, even for short periods of time. This makes it difficult or even impossible for these patients to receive dental care in a traditional dental office setting.

Patients with brain stem injuries have difficulty with movements, swallowing, breathing and performing other functions controlled by the brain stem. For these patients, receiving complex dental work in a dental office may even be dangerous for them as well as the dentist providing the treatment.

Many traditional dental offices are simply not equipped to handle patients with physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries. Most dentists do not have the time or resources required to provide care for these hard to treat patients.

Dental Care & Physical Injuries

Dr. Kurtzman has worked hard to create a practice that provides safe, effective, pain free Atlanta dental care for patients with physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries. Our office is specially equipped to handle patients with some types of physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries. However, for many patients with these problems, it is safer to provide dental treatment in a hospital setting. He treats this special group of patients in specially equipped operating rooms in Wellstar Windy Hill and Kennestone Hospitals under general anesthesia.

In a hospital operating room, patients with physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries are either sedated or placed under general anesthesia by a trained anesthesiologist. Their heart rate, breathing and vital signs are closely monitored for the entire time they are receiving treatment. This enables Dr. Kurtzman to ensure patients’ safety while providing effective and pain free dental treatment.

David Kurtzman, DDS accepts referrals for patients with physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain, or brain stem injuries from other dental practices. Patients travel from as far as South Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama to be treated by a dentist with Dr. Kurtzman’s level of expertise. By sending these patients to Dr. Kurtzman, dentists can best meet the needs of “hard to treat” patients and free up their time to treat the patients they serve best. This also removes the liabilities that these special care patients tend to bring with them from their practices. Once these patients are effectively treated, they are sent back to their referring dentist for recall and recare.

If you or a patient in your practice suffers from physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries and is in need of sleep/sedation dental care, please contact our Dentists Who Treats Patients with Physical Injuries at David Kurtzman, DDS today to schedule a consultation. 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!

Kelli B.

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
