The dental patient has been replaced by a dental consumer looking for proven, predictable solutions. Tooth loss and replacement pose both physical and emotional effects on patients. Early detection is key when treating any disease process. Understanding indications for treatment and effectively communicating benefits while managing expectations are critical when delivering predictable outcomes. Collaboration among the entire dental team strengthens the knowledge of case selection, case presentation and ultimately case acceptance. This session identifies the true impact of the interdisciplinary approach to improve the treatment outcome.
