Chattanooga TN Sedation Dentists

It you are one of the millions of Americans who dread the thought of going to the dentist, consider making an appointment with a Chattanooga TN sedation dentist who offers sleep and sedation dentistry. Dr. David Kurtzman, DDS, is one of the few dentists in the southeast who specializes in sleep and sedation dentistry.

Dr. Kurtzman offers intravenous sedation and general anesthesia to serve the needs of a wide variety of dental patients who are not comfortable with dental care in a traditional setting, or have or have physical, medical, or other conditions that make traditional dental care difficult or impossible. These patients are often underserved and as a result, their dental health and general health suffers.

Hospital Sleep Dentistry

Dr. Kurtzman is an expert in hospital sleep dentistry and offers different levels of sedation to meet the needs of each individual patient. Concious intravenous sedation is a moderate level of sedation. The patient is put into a more relaxed state than with nitrous oxide or oral sedation and often sleeps through the procedure. As the name implies, the patient is conscious and can be awoken at any time during the procedure. Patients usually don’t remember the procedure afterwards.

When deeper sedation is needed, general anesthesia is administered by a qualified anesthesiologist. In addition to the anesthesiologist, Dr. Kurtzman is assisted by trained surgical nurses. The patient is unconscious throughout the procedure and does not feel any pain. Dental procedures using full, unconscious sedation are performed in a hospital operating room that has been specially equipped for dentistry.

Hospital Dental Care

Hospital dental care is a comfortable, safe, stress free alternative to traditional dentistry for Tennessee dental patients. At every step of the way, Dr. Kurtzman and his staff are committed to minimizing discomfort and eliminating stress. It is perfect for people who suffer from moderate to severe dental anxiety, those who have an uncontrollable gag reflex, and those who are allergic to novocaine or can’t get numb with novacain.

In addition, patients who have physical or developmental disabilities or whose medical condition precludes traditional treatment can now receive excellent dental care. If you, or someone in your care, are a special needs dental patient, call to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kurtzman and find out how comfortable dentistry can be.

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
