Job Description

Forensic Dentistry Job Description

*Forensic dentistry is the proper handling and examination of dental evidence, which is brought to justice.

*If the body found in a crime scene is unidentifiable, it is the forensic dentist’s job to examine possible dental evidence.

*It is the job of the forensic dentist to identify a dead body that is totally burnt, destroyed, or decayed.

*By examining the teeth as well as reviewing dental records, the forensic dentist can determine who the deceased individual is.

*Forensic dentists are a very important part of investigations, disaster recovery, and solving crimes.

*They are the ones who investigators turn to when the cadaver is so destroyed that it seems impossible to identify it through facial features.

*These are usually victims who have been burned, thrown in a body of water, or have been buried dead for a long time.

Training and Education

*Aspiring forensic dentists must have completed a degree in dentistry or at least have attended courses and trainings in Odontology (diseases, anatomy, and development of teeth).

*Since these experts are dealing with teeth and dental work, an educational background in dentistry is certainly a must.

*It is an advantage if candidates have attended trainings in criminalities and law enforcement.

Duties and Responsibilities

*The forensic dentist examines the teeth of the deceased.
