Learning More About Forensic Odontology


This weekend I had the great pleasure of conducting a class called “From Body Farm to 9/11” at the Oak Ridge Institute for Continued Learning (ORICL) in Oak Ridge, TN. We had a fantastic turnout and made some wonderful new friends. A huge thank you to everyone who attended and the ORICL for putting this on! 

During the presentation we talked about the current techniques used in forensic dentistry, about the connection of forensic dentistry to the University of Tennessee Body Farm, and how we identified bodies after the 9/11 attacks. 

If this sounds interesting and you’re interested in learning more, there will be a similar presentation on September 13th here in Nashville regarding the advances in human identification. It’s for those who want to become familiar with both the introductory and advanced practical applications of forensic odontology and anthropology. It will be a fantastic presentation with other participants. I’m really looking forward to it!
