Course Overview

This 10-hour lecture/laboratory class introduces forensic odontology and reveals the role of the dentist in positive identification procedures in death investigations. Participants will gain exposure to cranio-dental remains from victims of thermal, ballistic, blunt and sharp force trauma as well as an introduction and practice in comparative antemortem-postmortem radiograph methods.  Upon successfully completing this course, a dentist from a smaller county where a licensed medical examiner does not reside, can have more confidence to step in and assist should a situation arise.

This particular course fulfills the need in the forensic community for qualified dentists to perform human identification services in the Medical Examiner system. The American Board of Forensic Odontology in the American Academy of Forensic Sciences are charged with education and training to meet this need.
