Find a dentist: The surgeon should have arranged emergency coverage. Call the office number. You may have lost your packing, need a repack, or have an infection. If you have to, call another office.

Oral Surgeon: I'm sure the Oral Surgeon has someone covering for him while he is out of town. His answering service should be able to give you that information.
