Therefore, whether going for a wisdom tooth removal or implant placement, there are factors that should come into play when choosing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS). We give you tips to ensure you settle on someone you can trust your smile with.

Education and Training

First, go for a surgeon with the appropriate training and education. This means checking that the school they graduated from is an accredited dental school. Also, check that the surgeon has an additional four to six years of training and is invested in continuous learning. A surgeon who prioritizes learning will be updated with the recent techniques and treatment options.

Experience in the Procedure

Beyond educational qualifications, your surgeon should have experience in the specific procedure you want to undertake. Therefore, ask how long they have worked in the field, the frequency of performing the specific procedure, and their success stories.

Reputation in the Practice

Starting your search by asking for professional recommendations from your dentist is the best way to ensure you land in safe hands. Most likely, your dentist will refer you to a trusted professional, but you can learn more about them through reviews and references. Patients who were once in your shoes will help you find out about the oral and maxillofacial surgeon you are considering, and you should read both positive and negative reviews before settling on one.

Availability and Accessibility

A surgeon who is close to your location and can fit within your schedule is the best choice, as you will not have to overstretch yourself in case of an emergency. Ask about emergency responses and their schedule for specific treatments throughout the week.
