Oral Surgeons – How to Choose Which to Use

dca-blog_oral-surgery-three-people

Oral surgery can be a major procedure, so it’s important to learn every detail about your oral surgeon. The following factors can help you select your specialist.

Expect Experience

Experience is everything when it comes to oral surgeons because the doctor’s level of expertise will affect your entire experience. Ask about these areas during your oral surgery consultation:

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

Talk About Treatment

Ask about which treatment options the oral surgeon advises 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 treatment.

Know Their 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.
