For primary health care to have an impact on health in the community, the involvement of multiple professionals is essential. The health team should include the knowledge and experience of distinct professional disciplines, with a results-oriented approach. This new approach requires the team to share key elements, such as the electronic record, the organization of care for different population groups, quality systems, and consultations among professionals in the same center. Examples of these interrelations are a woman attending an prenatal visit being referred to preventive dentistry, a smoking adult referred from dentistry to the family doctor or nurse, and a patient with low back pain referred from physiotherapy to a consultation on contraception. The present article analyzes the actions and perspectives of different disciplines in oral health care, sexual health / reproductive care and physiotherapy.
