As a part of its efforts to develop evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to support dental professionals dedicated to treating children, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) has appointed Dr. Gerald Glickman as an expert consultant to its new workgroup on Permanent Tooth Vital Pulp Therapy in Children and Adolescents. The AAPD welcomes Dr. Glickman for his perspective and expertise as an experienced endodontist. As the tenth member of the workgroup, he will contribute to its efforts of developing research questions, extracting and collating data, evaluating data and forest plots, and drafting the systematic review and guideline. The systematic review is slated for publication in 2022, and the clinical guideline in 2023. Dr. Glickman is a full professor in the Department of Endodontics at Texas A And M University College of Dentistry in Dallas Texas.

The table below features the topics and timeline of clinical practice guidelines developed by the AAPD. Completed guidelines can be found here:
