Interdisciplinary dentistry can be described as the mutual consideration of various dental specialties accompanied by expansion of the scope of each. Interdisciplinary dentistry is marked by the application of perspectives, concepts and methods that go beyond the limits of individual specialties. it may either be interpreted in a very narrow sense as the actual fusion of specialties, or in a wider sense as a multidisciplinary phenomenon in which independent specialties work jointly to resolve a problem, each from its own conceptual viewpoint. The real art of dentistry is to co-ordinate and interface these perspectives and provide the best quality of care to the patient.
