Oral Surgeons – How to Find Your Fit

dca-blog_oral-surgery-three-people

When opting for oral surgery, you want to be confident that your oral surgeon is best for you. Consider these four points when searching for the best oral surgeons in Kennesaw:

The Oral Surgeon’s Clinical Experience

Experience is everything when it comes to oral surgery because the doctor’s level of expertise will affect your entire experience. Find out about all of these areas before selecting your surgeon:

  • 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

The Importance of Credentials

No matter how good the surgeon seems, his credentials prove his proficiency. 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 they’ve stayed current on the latest techniques. Finally, review the professional accolades and societies to their credit.

The Pros and Cons of 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.

The Oral Surgeon’s Dental Network

When you need oral surgery, you need more than the oral surgeon’s expertise. The surgeon will 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 that 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.
