OBJECTIVE: The clinical management of the interrelationship between diabetes and periodontitis is a challenge for all parties involved in health care. For this reason, this project aims to provide subsidies for the implementation of routines that increase the partnership between endocrinologists, periodontists, and other health professionals in the patient care team. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The Brazilian Society of Periodontology – SOBRAPE and the Brazilian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism – SBEM appointed specific committees to develop joint guidelines addressing the interrelationship between diabetes and periodontitis. Results: Guidelines were developed for patients, physicians, dentists, and teams working in the Unified Health System. CONCLUSION: The application of the guidelines can provide a complete approach to patients with diabetes and periodontitis, with a consequent improvement in quality of life, and an improvement in medical parameters, with possible cost reduction for all medical and dental activities.
