ABSTRACT
The article presents a speech by John Oppie McCall at a meeting of the Pathodontia Section of the First Dental Society of the State of New York at the New York Academy of Medicine on March 11, 1926. MaCall discusses the etiology of approximal and gingival dental caries. Particular attention is paid to the classification of etiology into "pit and fissure" cavities, "smooth surface" cavities, "superficial enamel decay" and "senile caries." Theories concerning acidity in the formation of plaque are considered.
