Ways You Can Absolutely Ask For Clarification From Your Oral Surgeon

There might be part of you that feels embarrassed or shy about asking for clarification from your oral surgeon. You may feel like you should have been listening closer or that, perhaps, you will just need to head home from your visit to research the details. The truth is, our Santa Rosa, CA team would much prefer you understand what we are telling you in person, so you know you’ve got the facts straight (and so you don’t feel the burden of having to look for additional information on your own at home). If you feel a little uneasy as you learn about new things with us, we encourage you to consider some absolutely A-OK ways to ask for a review or clarity, so you realize this is always a good thing to do.

Ask For Clarity About Your Last Visit

Did your oral surgeon already meet with you to discuss your oral health or plans for the future? Did we talk with you about details and, though you enjoyed your experience and learned some important things, you need some help with what was discussed? This is no problem at all! We don’t expect our patients to be able to memorize every last detail. We are more than happy to review previous conversations and details, so please feel free to ask about something we have already covered!

Ask For Us To Re-Explain Something

Perhaps you find yourself at our practice, discussing services we offer. Our oral surgeon tells you something about your smile and your options. You hear the words but you just don’t really know what they mean: No problem. Please interject and ask for clarification. We are always happy to explain something in a different way or to elaborate on particular details!

Ask About Something You’ve Been Wondering About

Do you have questions about dental implants? Jaw grafting? Sinus lifts? Extractions? Maybe you’re wondering about financial details or something else. Perhaps you read something on our website. Maybe you just feel a little anxious about oral surgery. Whatever the case, don’t keep this in. Instead, let it out! Bring up any area that requires some clarification from your oral surgeon. Remember, even the tiniest, easy to answer concern can take up a lot of figurative room in your brain, which can end up becoming an obstacle in the way of your ability to enjoy your best oral health.
