"Technical Report No. 1077 was a labor of love for 32 subject matter experts from multiple countries,” said Kathleen Kasper, D.D.S., chair of the ADA Standards Committee on Dental Informatics Working Group 14.3 on Human Age Assessment by Dental Analysis, which developed the technical report. "I am thrilled it reached its desired goal of not only familiarizing dentists on the field but also providing additional guidance to adequately trained forensic odontologists when they perform this type of analysis."
The OSAC Registry is a repository of high-quality standards for forensic science that define minimum requirements, best practices and standard protocols and provide other guidance to practitioners. The standards on the registry have passed a rigorous technical and quality review by OSAC members, including forensic science practitioners, researchers, statisticians, and both human factors and legal experts.
