Besides the deep and trustful understanding of involved disciplines, multidisciplinary oral rehabilitation requires shared definitions of treatmnents goals, includin occlusal design parameteres. If the treatment obkectives are clear for all involved specilists and understood indetical, the treatment outcomes will fit the treatment intensions and defined goals. The treatment success is dependent on concerted steps. Occlusal parameters and occlusal design are still very controversial discussed between orthodontic and prosthodontic specialists. The one who suffers from thi disharmony within dentistry is the patient. The definition of treatment obkectives and the determination of the treatment strategy are the key elements in a multidisciplinary approach. The seminar aims to show the possibilities to coordinate the interdisciplinary team by a clear vision of occlusion. Gnathological principles are the link to check the consistency of the treatment with the treatment plan during the entire treatment.
