Over the last few decades, doctors have become aware of the special issues associated with interdisciplinary dentistry. All of the speakers at this Interdisciplinary Conference have contributed significantly to this awareness and have provided a vision of what a team can accomplish. The main objective of this presentation will be to provide the strategies that Team Montrose uses to execute the interdisciplinary treatment plans. The strategies include a common language for communication, the mechanics of a team meeting and addressing the most common pitfalls associated with multidisciplinary teams. Treated cases will be shown to demonstrate the results.
