The author reflects on the team approach to dental treatment. In the broadest sense, according to the author, a team concept of treatment includes not only the professionals involved in diagnosis, treatment planning, and delivery of service, but also the patient, research community, and representatives of the dental manufacturing and laboratory industries. He suggests that a team approach to optimal treatment should incorporate the knowledge and skills of all who contribute to the patient's care.
