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.

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
