Technical report on dental forensic analysis available for review

June 28, 2016 Forensic odontologists and other dental professionals responsible for or interested in identification of unknown individuals by comparative dental analysis using antemortem and postmortem data can comment on a draft technical report that the ADA Standards Committee on Dental Informatics approved for circulation and review earlier this year.

Proposed ADA Technical Report No. 1088 for Human Identification by Comparative Dental Analysis establishes current best practices for the collection and processing of dental data in order to prove or disprove a human identification as assisted by current digital technologies. It also describes the patient information required for dental forensic analysis.

Copies of the draft are available via the ADA toll-free number, Ext. 2506, or email standards@ada.org.
