Straight Talk on Choosing an Oral Surgeon

dca-blog_oral-surgery-three-people

Oral surgery is serious, so you need to seriously consider which oral surgeon is right for you. Use these considerations to help you make your choice.

Ask About Experience – Your oral surgeon’s experience will affect your experience. Oral surgeons must have outstanding skills and expertise to ensure that you’re in good hands. Ask about these areas during your consultation:

  • Professional training and knowledge of the specialty
  • Clinical experience, both overall and in your procedure
  • How long they’ve been practice
  • The procedures they specialize in
  • Background with your particular problem
  • Emergency and post-procedure protocol

Check Credentials – Credentials speak volumes about an oral surgeon’s skill set. First, you must insist that the oral surgeon is certified as a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Then, discuss their continuing education to ensure that they’ve stayed current on the latest techniques. Finally, review the professional accolades and societies to their credit.

Discuss Treatment – Focus on the types of treatment the oral surgeon suggests for you. Discuss the pros and cons of each, as well as the estimated cost and possible financing plans if insurance doesn’t cover your oral surgery.

Know The Oral Surgeon’s Network – When you need oral surgery, you need more than an oral surgeon. Oral surgeons work in collaboration with other dental and medical experts to provide specialized care. You need to know their referral process and network of treatment partners to ensure you have the same level of trust in all of these professionals. If insurance is a factor, make sure that all of the partners will accept your insurance and cover the treatments you need.
