JJAMD promotes "Jaw Joints - TMJ Awareness©" throughout the year. In addition, we celebrate each month of November as "Jaw Joints - TMJ Awareness Month©" as introduced in 1997 by Congressman Barney Frank in the Congress of the United States.
The 1996 NIH Technology Assessment Conference [TAC] synthesizes The TMJ Dilemma and succinctly
explains why JJAMD is unable to give specific medical/dental advice or referrals of any kind.
The Conference report noted the absence of any universally accepted scientifically proven
treatments and concluded that future advances in diagnosis and treatment requires
collaboration of multidisciplinary fields involving basic and applied
science and practice. The conference concluded "a Consensus must be developed
regarding the professional expertise needed to diagnosis and treat these
serious health problems." Here in 2002, there is still no significant
improvement in this situation. But we are happy to report that there are some
visible signs of positive changes happening, which is reported
out on this website under: "Current News."
