Historically, dental treatment planning was primarily dictated by information provided by study casts which were mounted on a sophisticated articulator in centric relation. The treatment plan was simply based on restorative space, anterior tooth coupling and resistance and retention form of the final preparations, with no focus on placing the teeth in the correct position in the face. Practitioners did not have access to advanced periodontal, orthodontic, orthognathic surgery and plastic surgery tools that are currently available. With the advent and common usage of these new treatment modalities, the historical method of diagnosis and treatment planning is no longer adequately serving our profession. It is the purpose of this course to provide a systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment planning the complex interdisciplinary dental patient with a common language that may be used by the orthodontist, periodontist, and oral and maxillofacial surgeon, as well as the restorative dentist.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe four global diagnoses
  • Describe the “5 CORE Questions” with their corresponding treatment options
  • Demonstrate how to communicate with the interdisciplinary team using a common language
