Answer

Sjögren syndrome and its associated disorders necessitate a total patient perspective that is often best provided by an internist. A rheumatologist with specific training and experience in Sjögren syndrome and its associated disorders is also essential to the management of the condition. In addition, good oral prophylaxis and therapy are necessary.
