Multi-disciplinary approach & collaborative care
Caring for patients goes beyond simple black and white thinking; everyone is an individual with unique circumstances. As a result, collaborative care between patient, orthodontist, and dentist is an act wherein all parties act in concert with each other, and the result is harmonious.
Dr. Roeder believes in using a multi-disciplinary approach, with numerous individuals, to create the best possible outcome in orthodontic care. Communication and patient records are sent without delay, and cooperation between practitioners is paramount.
Key players in the collaboration of treatment are:
- The Patient
- Patient’s Parents (if underage)
- Patient’s Dentist
- RO Team Members
- Patient’s Oral Specialist (if warranted)
For example, in rare cases, some patients require surgery to correct their oral condition. Dr. Roeder works closely with the Jaw Surgery Specialist to facilitate communication, get updates on the patient’s condition pre and post surgery. Dr. Roeder’s treatment will be customized to the unique conditions of the patient, based on communication and personal observation.
Other examples of specialists with whom Dr. Roeder may collaborate are:
- Pediatric Dentist
- Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
