Forensic Odontology: Where We've Been, Where We're Going

Forensic Odontology has been used historically in victim identification and bitemark evidence. Emerging dental technology is changing methods in victim identification and solving cases that reached a dead-end in the past.

Bitemark analysis has come under increased scrutiny in the courtroom and have challenged the admissibility and reliability of this evidence. The controversies will be presented and participants will be able to make an educated opinion regarding the value of this evidence. The history and science of forensic dentistry will be explored as well as to what the future may hold. Dentistry will always have a role but like all aspects of our profession it is an ever changing world.
