  • !! About Us !!
  • Some define forensic odontology as the
    intersection of the law and the science of
    dentistry. Others simply state that it happens
    when dentists assist law enforcement in solving
    crimes. And although a couple of thousand
    dentists throughout the world call themselves
    forensic odontologists or forensic dentists by
    virtue of study, training, and experience in
    truth, nearly every dentist has the basic
    knowledge required to perform a dental
    identification the staple of forensic dental
    practice. Many dentists have assisted in making
    dental IDs by providing the dental records that
    are so often referenced in the news the
    authorities are waiting for dental records to
    positively identify the remains.

  • !!
    Advantages of Forensic Odontology !!
  • Forensic Odontology is the sub-discipline of
    dentistry that applies the principles of dental
    science to matters of legal interest. The
    majority of a Forensic Odontologist's casework at
    the JPAC CIL involves the identification of
    unknown individuals who died as a result of
    conflict. Forensic Odontologists from the CIL
    have also been called upon to assist in recent
    mass fatality cases, examine bite-mark evidence,
    assess injuries in child abuse cases, and to
    serve as expert witnesses in civil litigation
    proceedings.

    Disadvantages of Forensic Odontology !!
  • A disadvantage of age estimates based on
    development is that most adults have completed
    their dental development by 25. For individuals
    who have attained full dental maturity, dental
    development is useless as an age estimator.
    Fortunately for the CIL, the majority of our
    casework is of individuals who are between the
    ages of 18 and 25. Age estimates can be used as
    useful corroborative circumstantial information
    in the identification process. They are also
    helpful in segregating individuals from large
    cases with multiple, commingled decedents.
