Georgia Dentist Who Treats Patients with Severe Heart Problems
Are you looking for a Georgia dentist who treats patients with severe heart problems? Severe heart problems include congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, cardiomyopathy, myocarditis, myocardial ischemia, angina, mitral valve prolapse, valve disease and more. Increased stress and anxiety in these patients can aggravate their heart problems and put them at further risk. For this reason, it is very difficult or impossible for many patients with severe heart problems to be seen and receive complex dental work in a traditional dental office.
Dr. David Kurtzman has worked hard to create a practice that provides safe, personalized, pain free dental care for patients who have severe heart problems. His office is specially equipped to handle patients with some types of heart problems. However, for many patients with severe heart 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.
Trusted Dental Care & Heart Problems
Dr. Kurtzman provides comfortable, safe Atlanta dental care for patients with heart problems. In a hospital operating room, patients with severe heart problems 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 provide safe and pain free dental treatment for patients with severe heart problems.
David Kurtzman, DDS accepts referrals for patients with severe heart problems from other dental practices. Patients are referred from practices as far away as South Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama. Most dentists do not have the time or resources to handle patients with severe heart problems. By sending these patients to Dr. Kurtzman, they can meet the needs of their 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 dentists’ 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 severe heart problems and is in need of dental care, please contact our Dental Care & Heart Problems Specialists at David Kurtzman, DDS today to schedule a consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.
