Overview

Dental evidence may produce positive associations to victim identity, suspect identity, or elimination of suspects under investigation. These determinations can affect the direction and ultimate outcome of police and judicial efforts. Forensic Dental Evidence delivers core information urgently needed by low enforcement, coroners, crime scene personnel, investigators and medical-legal personnel to ensure credible forensic dental investigations. Forensic Dental Evidence establishes a foundation for dental investigation methodology -- not only the reasons and the need behind the protocols, but the processes that should be used in gathering and preserving evidence to extract vital physical (impression) or biological (DNA) information. Included are details on how to identify various types of dental evidence, how to document, collect and preserve the evidence and the legal requirements regarding collection, storage and chain of custody issues.

Audience: Crime Scene Investigators, Law Enforcement Personnel, Law Enforcement Trainers, Forensic Scientists, Forensic Dentists, Forensic Nurses, Sexual Assault Nurses, Lawyers, Forensic Pathologists.
