Event Details...

This event includes information on the following topics:

The intended audience for this event includes:

This two-day course will introduce participants to the scope and practice of forensic odontology with particular emphasis on disaster victim identification. 

Utilisation of dental techniques for human identification are simple in concept but complex in process. Participants will be guided through the inter-related processes and procedures utilised in a disaster event. 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 tooth identification, antemortem and postmortem radiographic matching and age estimation from radiographic evidence are also components of the course. 

Participants will have a greater understanding of the value of the quality of their clinical records in the identification process. Become a forensic “sleeper”, a skill set that will fascinate you but we hope you will never need.

  • The history of forensic dentistry 
  • Identification methods
  • Mass casualty incidents
  • Mortuary procedures
  • Medical and Dental Autopsies
  • Dental radiology
  • Forensic pathology
  • Dental records and nomenclature
  • Post traumatic stress
