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

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:

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.
