This course is based on a body of research funded for over 20 years by NIDCR. The research has investigated the epidemiology of TMD, the relationship between physical, behavioral and psychosocial factors; and controlled clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of biobehavioral treatments. The research has been carried out under Principal Investigators Edmond Truelove, DDS, MSD, and Samuel F. Dworkin, DDS, PhD. Ms. Huggins reported no conflicts of interest associated with this course.
