Sorry to hear about your accident, and hope that you recover soon. Determining a specialist of any sort can be a stressful endeavor and it's a good idea to speak with your dentist
or healthcare provider. This is especially true if you are looking for a surgeon
or proceduralist who will be doing something that will last, hopefully, for the rest of your life. For that reason, there are many sites that are developed to help you find someone that you can trust and who will do well. In addition to the online resources that are available, word of mouth can be invaluable. Your dentist or friends will also have people that they recommend, although you should realize that your dentist will often have reciprocal relationships with this person. This means that one of the most important things will be meeting with the person and determining if you are on the same page. Board certification and specialist training are important criteria as well, and should be considered. Finally, the state medical or dental board may have some information available about a physician, and should be able to help you if you are worried about any past history of complaints against your specialist. Please speak with your dentist or healthcare provider for more information.
