“Global Diagnosis: A New Vision of Dental Diagnosis and Treatment Planning”
It is the purpose of this lecture 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. The four Global Diagnoses which dictate all interdisciplinary treatment planning will be defined. A set of questions will then be presented which will aid the interdisciplinary team in the diagnosis and treatment planning of the complex dental patient.
Attendees will learn:
1. How to describe 4 Global Diagnoses.
2. How to describe the "5 CORE Questions" with their corresponding treatment options.
3. How to complete a Global diagnosis form which will lead to a comprehensive diagnosis.
4. How to communicate with the interdisciplinary team.
