About Our Practice

Our office in Ravenna, Ohio, seat of Portage County, provides for most of your dental needs - from cleaning, topical fluoride treatment, sealants, and tooth-colored fillings - to implants, crowns, bridges, and veneers - to periodontal treatment, root canal treatment, and TMJ therapy - to extractions and partial and full dentures. Occasionally we may refer you to a trusted dental specialist.


  • X rays

    To assure minimum exposure, we maintain state-of-the-art equipment and use dental x rays only when they are necessary for a proper dental diagnosis.
  • Insurance

    We are happy to cooperate with your insurance company. If you wish, we will predetermine your dental benefits before treatment to let you know exactly what your insurance will cover.

    *An Important Note: When you have the opportunity to choose a dental insurance policy, be sure to select a policy which allows you the freedom to choose your dentist, rather than a policy which dictates where you must go.

  • Fees

    Our staff sincerely tries to make arrangements that enable you to receive the dental care you need. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Care Credit.
  • Emergencies

    Dental emergencies during office hours can be treated the same day by phoning 330.296.3861 as soon after 8am as possible. After office hours, a patient with a dental emergency may phone Dr. Kurz at his home number: 330.297.0649.
