In 2008 the American Dental Educators Association (ADEA) formed a committee charged with assembling a glossary of terms for dental educators. Their labors were published in July 2010 Dental Clinics of North Americas. They found this necessary because the teaching of dentistry had changed in light of CAMBRA, Caries Management by Risk Assessment. The words used were from a time when surgical treatment was the only option for dental diseases. Redefining words in light of the current science was overdue.
