Columbia SC Sedation Dentists

If you have been looking for a great Columbia SC sedation dentist, you are in good company! Studies estimate that as many as 40 to 50 million Americans avoid the dentist due to dental anxiety. Millions more are unable to tolerate traditional dental care due to a variety of reasons such as a physical or developmental disability, unable to get numb, severe gagging reflex, unable to remain still throughout the procedure, or allergy to novocaine. Whatever the reason, if you have been avoiding going to the dentist, Dr. David Kurtzman’s sleep and sedation dentistry can help.

Dr. Kurtzman has been providing the best quality dental care in the southeast for nearly thirty years. His practice is devoted to providing dental care for special needs patients through sleep and sedation dentistry. Now, even the most difficult to treat patients can have the dental care they need in complete comfort. South Carolina sleep and sedation dentistry is safe, painless, and free from anxiety.

Hospital Sleep Dentist

Be careful not to confuse the mild sedation offered by most dentists with true hospital sleep dentistry. Most dentists only offer oral sedatives, but Dr. Kurtzman is one of only a handful of dentists in the southeast with the qualifications and training necessary to offer a full range of sleep and sedation dentistry.

With true sleep and sedation dentistry, the level of sedation can range from mild conscious sedation to full unconscious sedation under general anesthesia. Through consultation with the patient, Dr. Kurtzman determines an appropriate level of sedation to provide the patient with a comfortable dental experience.

Hospital Dental Care

Patients requiring hospital dental care are treated under general anesthesia with the assistance of a fully qualified anesthesiologist. The patient feels nothing and will not remember having the procedure. Dr. Kurtzman and his compassionate staff work hard to ensure each patient’s dental treatment is comfortable, painless, and anxiety free.

Procedures under conscious sedation are performed in the relaxing environment of Dr. Kurtzman’s dental office. Intravenous sedatives are administered to provide an optimal level of sedation. IV sedatives are superior to oral sedatives because the amount of sedative can be carefully controlled to keep the patient comfortable throughout the procedure.

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
