In January 2019, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) initiated a 15-month comprehensive study of the status of current knowledge and clinical practices associated with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). The National Academy of Sciences, which includes the NAM, was chartered by the US Congress in 1863 as a nonprofit institution that works outside of government to provide unbiased, objective opinions; consequently, its activities are conducted with multiple layers of oversight to ensure that objectivity and accountability are at the forefront in any final report. In this brief commentary, we will discuss the report “Temporomandibular Disorders: Priorities for Research and Care” (2020).
1Although its necessary focus was on the situation of TMDs in the US, the literature scope was international, and the findings are generalizable to most countries and settings.
