Georgia Dentist Who Treats Patients with Rets’ Syndrome

Do you need a Georgia dentist who treats patients with Rett Syndrome? Rett Syndrome is a disorder of the nervous system that is believed to be genetic. It occurs almost exclusively in females and causes symptoms such as the inability to make purposeful movements, speech difficulties, breathing problems and seizures.

The symptoms of Rett Syndrome, particularly the ones pertaining to breathing difficulties and seizures, make it very difficult for these patients to receive dental treatment in a traditional dental office setting. These patients require extra care to ensure their safety while receiving dental treatment. Most dental offices are simply not equipped for treating this type of patient.

Dr. David Kurtzman has established a dental practice that is specially equipped for handling special care patients. He welcomes patients with Rett Syndrome and has the experience and expertise needed to provide them with the special care they require, including complex dental work.

Dental Care & Rets’ Syndrome

Dr. David Kurtzman provides Atlanta dental care for patients with Rett Syndrome in specially equipped operating rooms at Wellstar Windy Hill and Kennestone Hospitals, under general anesthesia. General anesthesia is administered by trained anesthesiologists and patients are monitored closely for the duration of their treatment. Treating Rett Syndrome patients in a hospital setting enables Dr. Kurtzman to provide them with effective, pain-free dental treatment while at the same time ensuring their safety.

Dr. Kurtzman accepts Rett Syndrome patients who are referred from other dental practices. In fact, many patients with Rett Syndrome travel from as far as South Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama to receive his specialized care. Referring these patients to Dr. Kurtzman ensures that they receive the special care they need and removes the liabilities they tend to bring with them from other dental offices. Once they are treated by Dr. Kurtzman, they are returned to their referring dentist for recall and recare.

If you, a friend or family member, or a patient in your practice has Rett Syndrome and requires special dental treatment, please contact our Dentists Who Treats Patients with Rets’ Syndrome 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
