Forensic Odontology National Conference: All That Remains

July 30 - August 4, 2017
University of Tennessee Medical Center
Knoxville, Tennessee

Course Overview

All That Remains gives dental professionals exposure to current forensic dentistry methods and provides hands-on training for individual and mass-disaster casualty identification in death investigations. Dentists with specialized training in forensics often use their skills to aid first responders following mass disasters such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and more recently, the Smoky Mountain fires.

All That Remains is led by forefront forensics faculty including officers in the American Board of Forensic Odontology national organization as well as Dr. Bill Bass, a renowned forensic anthropologist who founded the original “Body Farm.”

During the week-long forensic odontology course, attendees will visit a variety of settings including a courtroom, forensic anthropology laboratory, hospital laboratory, and regional forensic center office. This course also includes the opportunity to perform an oral autopsy, including a jaw resection; witness a forensic autopsy; visit and archaeologically-excavate a clandestine grave; and learn to use entomological evidence for time-since-death estimation.
