If you have to undergo oral surgery, finding the best surgeon will ensure that you have a safe, comfortable experience. Determining the surgeon that’s the right fit for your needs doesn’t have to be complicated, you simply have to do some research among the preferred surgeons in your area, and know what to look for.
What to look for in the best oral surgeon
- Training and credentials
Review the educational achievements and memberships of the oral surgeon. Choose a surgeon that graduated from an accredited dental school, and therefore has the required dental training and credentials. Additional training is also valuable and helpful when performing complex procedures, so make sure that the surgeon also meets these criteria.
The oral surgeon must have the experience and specialty training needed to perform the procedure you’re interested in. A surgeon with years in the field will have more expertise, and is typically well-informed about the latest technological advances in oral surgery.
- Good bedside manner
Choose an oral surgeon with a good bedside manner, as they will provide a more comfortable experience for you. The surgeon should be willing to listen to your concerns, and address any issues you have about the operation. Look at reviews posted by past patients and take note of their opinions of the surgeon, as well as the surgical process.
It’s also important to verify that the operation will be done in a fully accredited surgical facility (click here to learn more).
