Covering all possible fields of odontology within the forensic sciences, the book contains the most recent research results as well as all established methods and procedures. Ranging from the history of forensic odontology before it became a scientific method aiding police investigations and identification of disaster victims until the latest ideas of dental profiling and odontobiography, it is an important addition to the spreading of the science of forensic odontology.
From the review of Irena Dawidson
The subject of this book is of current interest. Our world is not always peaceful, neither privately nor politically, and there are always natural disasters or other events where many people die. Here the teeth, as the most important anatomical structures in the field of identification, are still a valuable help.
The development of methods in medicine, life sciences and in the development of imaging techniques is rapid, so such special books are an absolute necessity. It will close a gap to general forensics, where dental forensics is usually neglected. The book is an important book, and it will find its special readership: researchers and practitioners from forensic medicine, dental forensics and dental anthropology, but can also serve as an interesting reference work for physicians and anthropologists in general. The book represents the state of research or the state-of-the-art in the field, which it describes: dental forensics.
