Not all oral surgeons are made equal. How do you know which one is the best for you? Finding an oral surgeon who is board-certified, having a variety of experience, and having strong backing from previous patients are three important factors to consider when looking for an oral surgeon. Here is what patients should look for in an expert oral surgeon in Fairfax, VA.
Being certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery is not a requirement to be an oral surgeon in the United States. This certification shows a commitment to offering the best treatment to all who visit.
Having a board certification does show that the doctor has a strong understanding of the oral and maxillofacial areas. It can also show some of the doctor’s practical knowledge as well. Being board certified can help prove a doctor has become experienced through a hospital residency program or through practice with other oral surgeons. This is because the board goes beyond just tests and wants to understand the doctor comprehensively.
A Variety Of Experiences
Having an oral surgeon who has a variety of experiences in the field is also important. One way to see that, is if a doctor has had a hospital residency. For example, Dr. Haron is one of only six oral surgeons with privileges at Inova Fairfax Hospital. By having privileges, he has proven to beat the mark of oral surgeons by going above and beyond in his field.
Seeing what organizations the expert oral surgeon is associated with is also a good indicator of how committed they are to their practice. Not only board certifications, but being part of professional organizations shows they are keeping up with the most current scientific data which is critical to providing the best quality care.
Finally, showing willingness and practice with multiple conditions is important. If an oral surgeon only does wisdom tooth extractions, that is only great for wisdom tooth extractions but nothing else. Having multiple conditions oral surgeons treat, can usually be found by either calling the surgeon’s office or exploring their website.
A Great Recommendation
A very important part of this is in the experiences of those who have previously visited the doctor. If a doctor is confident in their patients’ testimonials, they will likely show off their work with ease. This could be through online reviews or videos. Showing the before and after pictures of patients is also a good way to really show what kind of work the doctor is capable of doing.
That is why so many previous clients of Dr. Haron share their experiences with him. Dr. Haron has proven to many that he is up to the challenge of providing the highest quality care to all who visit his office in Fairfax, VA.
