The intended audience for this event includes:
CPD, in conjunction with the NSW Forensic Dental Unit, are pleased to present the 28th annual forensic dentistry and forensic anthropology course. This four-day Forensic Dental course will introduce participants to the dental elements of identification science.
Utilisation of dental techniques for human identification is simple in concept but complex in process. Presentations on the Asian Tsunami and other mass fatality incidents are used to illustrate the process. A practical component with a mock disaster exercise is held in the main mortuary. Exercises in dental aging from radiographic evidence are also a component of the training.
The anthropological component of the course is held at the Shellshear Museum at Sydney University where you will undertake a workshop on race, sex, age and stature estimation.
Become a forensic "Sleeper", a skill set that will fascinate you but we hope you will never need.
