The present study explores the ideologies of an interdisciplinary team for better patient centered healthcare outcomes. The principles studied in the literature review were used to formulate a conceptual design of IDT. A conceptual design was then planned for cessation of tobacco smoking among diabetic patients by the dentist and the physician who specializes as a certified health coach, to reduce the burden of the underlying systemic issues along with the dental treatment.
