Atlanta Dentistry for the Developmentally Disabled

Developmentally disabled individuals need specialized dental care.  Finding a caring, compassionate dentist to meet the needs of developmentally disabled individuals can be a challenge, but North Atlanta area residents know they can rely on the dental office of Dr. David Kurtzman

From routine cleanings to cavities, crowns, and bridges, Dr. Kurtzman understands the special needs of the developmentally disabled.  Dr. Kurtzman has the training and experience to provide the highest quality, pain free dental care to individuals with developmental disabilities and other special needs individuals.

For more than 20 years, Dr. Kurtzman has been the North Atlanta area’s premier provider of dental care services to individuals with developmental disabilities including:

• Cerebral Palsy
• Alzheimer’s Disease
• Brain Stem Injuries
• Mental Retardation
• Autism
• Rett Syndrome
• Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Developmentally disabled individuals face situations that contribute to dental pathology more frequently than the general population and, due to the challenge of obtaining high quality dental care, often have poorer dental health than most other groups. 

Dr. Kurtzman and his staff have the training and expertise to address the special dentistry needs of developmentally disabled individuals.  Developmentally disabled individuals are best treated in the hospital operating room under sedation. Using a hospital operating room specifically set up for dentistry, Dr. Kurtzman and his staff, including a trained anesthesiologist and surgical nurses, will take care of the patient’s dental care needs while the patient is safely and comfortably sedated. 

Finding a dentist to provide top quality dental care to developmentally disabled individuals is no longer a problem for patients and their families in the North Atlanta area.  Look no further than the Marietta office of Dr. Kurtzman.  Dr. Kurtzman specializes in providing superior pain free dental care to special needs persons, including those with developmental disabilities.  You will not find a more compassionate, caring dental care environment than that provided by Dr. Kurtzman and his friendly staff.
