Abstract

The principal aim of the Third Educational Conference to Develop the Curriculum in Temporomandibular Disorders and Orofacial Pain was to enhance the teaching of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and orofacial pain to predoctoral dental students and to postdoctoral students in this field. Within this context, the conference sought to: (1) provide information regarding the current status of the predoctoral and postdoctoral teaching of TMD and orofacial pain, (2) present ways in which teaching of the basic sciences can be better integrated into the teaching of TMD and orofacial pain in the predoctoral and postdoctoral curriculum, (3) present ways in which the teaching of oral medicine can be better integrated into the teaching of TMD and orofacial pain in the predoctoral and postdoctoral curriculum, and (4) discuss how TMD and orofacial pain should be taught in a manner that is consistent with newly proposed accreditation standards. The papers addressing these specific aspects, as well as a summary paper on the conclusions from the conference, are presented in this issue of the journal.
