Your oral health and function is a tremendous investment, and it’s important that you receive the right attention and care as you navigate medical choices that can impact the rest of your life. At Oral and Facial Surgeons of Arizona, we believe that every patient should know what to look for in the right oral surgeon. Here are five tips to help you find an oral surgeon who will listen to your needs and help you achieve your ideal outcome.
1. The Highest Standard of Care
A great maxillofacial surgeon never compromises on care. Look for a surgeon and staff who are willing to go above and beyond to help you achieve optimal results.
2. Field Expertise
Your oral or facial surgeon should be able to make informed recommendations for your specific condition and provide personalized treatment options. They should be able to discuss these choices in thorough detail and make suggestions on a patient-to-patient basis.
3. Board Certification
Maxillofacial surgery is extremely serious and involves the use of very precise techniques – it’s no place to cut corners. Your surgeon should be board certified and have extensive experience performing a wide variety of procedures.
4. An Emphasis on Comfort
All patients respond to surgery differently, and it’s important that surgeons and staff take every measure to provide a calm, comfortable, and friendly environment before, during, and after surgery. Your surgeon should also be trained in sedation and general anesthesia practices.
5. Listens to You
There’s no quality more important in an oral or facial surgeon than the dedication to your comfort and satisfaction. Look for a surgeon who genuinely listens and responds to your concerns and needs throughout the entire treatment process, from initial contact to post-operative appointments. It’s your health, and you should always be in the driver’s seat.
