Sharing Concerns with Your Oral Surgeons

Oral Surgery Consultation North, TXTexas Oral Surgery Group has provided unsurpassed oral surgery treatment for over 30 years, and we pride ourselves on delivering the best patient experience possible. To Dr. Stewart and Dr. Michael and our entire team, this goes beyond adhering to stringent safety guidelines and includes patients’ overall comfort.

We understand that while a procedure might be “routine” for Dr. Stewart and Dr. Michael, it likely is not for our patients. That’s why we work hard to make sure patients are informed and comfortable every step of the way. While patients may not look forward to the procedure itself, the experience doesn’t have to be frightening or uncomfortable.

Dr. Stewart and Dr. Michael have found that open, honest communication is the key to easing patient fears and creating a successful treatment experience. However, they can’t do it alone.

Communication is a two-way street, and just as it’s up to us to ensure that our patients have all the information they need, it is vital that patients take an active role in sharing information, as well as concerns. The Texas Oral Surgery Group team will do everything feasible to make your experience as stress-free as possible, and your willingness to share concerns is essential.

Fear of the unknown is often the root cause of anxiety, and arming yourself with information is usually the best strategy to alleviate that anxiety.

Ask questions

At Texas Oral Surgery Group, our job starts well before we put on the exam gloves. The team’s collective goal is to deliver the best patient experience possible, and that means making ourselves available for questions and ensuring patients understand the information provided. Patients who are prepared for both the procedure and associated healing period are more likely to have a smoother experience and faster recovery. So yes, questions are encouraged!

Don’t be afraid to speak up.

Each patient is unique and has their own individual tolerance levels. If something doesn’t feel right, let us know.  We also want you to know that it’s ok to ask about alternatives!

Remember, you are in control.

Dr. Stewart and Dr. Michael will always present you with all of your options. While they will make suggestions based on their knowledge and experience, final treatment decisions are always up to you.

Quality patient care has always been at the heart of Texas Oral Surgery Group and we are here to answer your questions. We encourage you to contact any of our four convenient locations (Denton, Plano, Decatur, Gainesville)  to schedule a consultation or speak with a team member.
