Register for dental coding workshop in Salt Lake City

April 24, 2014

Salt Lake City—There’s still time to register for an FBI-sponsored national Crime Information Dental Coding Workshop here June 7-8.

The workshop, organized by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division, will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Salt Lake/West Valley City. The training session is designed to provide NCIC dental coding and National Dental Image Repository instruction to forensic odontologists and licensed dentists who wish to provide assistance to law enforcement in identifying missing and unidentified persons cases.

Participants will receive a certification for 16 hours of training at the end of the course, but they should also check the continuing education unit requirements for their organization or association to determine whether the credit is accepted. The FBI will conduct a criminal history background check on everyone who registers and a felony conviction will disqualify a person from participating.

Registrants must be licensed dentists.

The registration deadline is May 23. To obtain a registration form, contact Kathleen Oldaker at 1-304-625-5931.
