What should I know about where my oral surgery will happen?

ANSWER

It’s important to look into where your surgery will take place. Make sure the hospital, clinic, or doctor’s office is accredited, highly rated, and has experience dealing with surgeries of your type.

If you can’t find the information online, ask the office for it. Make sure you look for information about the staff and how it cares for patients.
