In brief: Ask your doctor
I do not thik robotic surgery is very prevalent in surgical procedures of the head and neck.
I would ask my doctor to refer me to a robotic surgery center.

In brief: Not really used
The daVinci robot is not typically used for oral cancers.
It's main use for head and neck cancers is for tonsils, base of tongue, and certain laryngeal cancers. Also, keep in mind that the robot is only a tool that the surgeon uses. As a robotic surgeon, I make sure to tell my patients this.

In brief: A good oral surgeon
May not need a robot, you have to ask why you want one.
Best advice is to get three opinions: you may ask for a robotic surgeon and ask how many he/she has done, why it's better, either in terms of control/survival, time in hospital, blood loss. Be informed not a "technology at any cost" consumer.
