Abstract

This 2·5-day workshop was organized by the International RDC/TMD Consortium Network of the International Association for Dental Research and the Orofacial Pain Special Interest Group of the International Association for the Study of Pain. Workshop participation was by invitation based on representation within the field, which included the Consortium Network, the Orofacial Pain Special Interest Group, the National Institute for Dental and Craniofacial Research, American Academy of Orofacial Pain, the European Academy of Craniomandibular Disorders, and the International Headache Society; other disciplines included radiology, psychology, ontology, and patient advocacy. The workshop members were divided into workgroups that reviewed core literature describing the properties of the RDC/TMD, provided recommendations for revision, and suggested relevant research directions. The goals of this workshop were to (i) finalize the revision of the RDC/TMD into a Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (DC/TMD), which would be more appropriate for routine clinical implementation, (ii) provide a broad foundation for the further development of suitable diagnostic systems for not only TMD but also oro-facial pain as well, and (iii) provide research recommendations oriented towards improving our understanding of TMD and oro-facial pain. This report provides the full description of the workshop and Executive Summary, and it acknowledges the participants and sponsors.
