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.
We offer the high quality comprehensive dental care previously available in a dental office only to able bodied and minded inviduals to “Special Needs” clients and their families in the safety and security of the hospital operating room. Our care extends from the oral care and dental care structure of the families and caregivers.
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.
