When I first became a dentist 20 years ago, I was very scared of complex cases. A complex case is when you require input from multiple specialists to help restore a patient’s mouth. I would totally avoid those cases and many times, I would refer them to a more seasoned dentist.
The reason why these cases are so intimidating, is because the general dentist (me), is usually the quarterback and coordinates the treatment with all the specialties. In the early days, I went about finding my dream team of dental specialists to assist me with cases. People that hold my same standards of care and are team players. It took a while to find the perfect team that worked well together.
For the last 15 years I have been working with my team group of specialists. We have accumulated a huge body of work together.
I talk to them almost every day about our mutual patients.
These years of working together, has allowed us to communicate effectively and be able to predict each other’s treatment. This builds confidence with the patient.
