What do the Birthday Rule, Malocclusion and Xerostomia have in Common?
They are all terms found on the Glossary of Dental Clinical and Administrative Terms. There are many terms used daily by dentists and their teams in the course of delivering care to patients, maintaining patient records and preparing claims. New dentists and new team members may not be as familiar with some terms. From abscess to zygomatic bone, the Glossary has the definitions to get everyone up to speed and on the same page.
