Abstract

Dentistry is treated as a separate entity from the main healthcare systems in America. Specifically, there is a distinct disconnect between dental students and interprofessional education. This detachment is problematic because dentists utilize interprofessional collaboration to accomplish complex patient care. Interprofessional education is an important part of the Doctor of Dental Surgery curriculum because consideration of both oral and systemic health is necessary during dental treatment. Interprofessional education provides opportunities to educate dental students about other disciplines, educate other disciplines about dentistry, and foster collaboration between healthcare students.
