"Dentists are the only medical professionals responsible for the health of the entire masticatory system. The teeth do not hang out in space; they must work together in harmony with the masticatory musculature and the temporomandibular joint. Complete dentistry has four comprehensive goals: optimum oral health, anatomic harmony, functional harmony, and occlusal stability. If each goal is achieved, treatment success is assured. When the entire system is healthy, there is a harmony of form and function, and the relationships are stable, then the treatment can be considered complete. Esthetic requirements will also be fulfilled because the appearance of the smile is dependent on the same harmony of form that is necessary for the harmony of function."
