Smith, and others, developed new insights into the variation and development of primate teeth. Topics explored included tooth combs in prosimians, developmental rates, growth disturbances, enamel thickness, canine honing, microwear analysis, and the interaction of crown morphology and dietary behavior. This foundation set the stage for problem‐oriented research on tooth form, function, and evolution for diverse ­primate species. In 1985, during the annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (AAPA) in Knoxville, TN, researchers who focused on teeth listed more than 150 anthropologists and dentists with teaching and research interests in the field.
