Interprofessional education (IPE) is a step toward providing high-quality patient care by producing collaborative and ready to practice health-care professionals. The oral health care needs of the 21st century including increased awareness of oral-systemic connections, an aging population, the shift of the burden of illness from acute to chronic care, and lack of access to basic oral care have made it imperative for health-care professionals including dentists to work in interprofessional teams. This article briefly discusses the historical background and the advancement of IPE in dentistry. It also describes the burden of oral health care in India and the need for IPE and collaborative care in dentistry in India. The article also highlights the barriers/challenges and recommendations for the implementation of IPE in dentistry in India.
