Forensic Odontology : Principles and Practice, Hardback Book

Forensic Odontology : Principles and Practice Hardback

Edited by Jane Taylor, Jules Kieser


Forensic odontology refers to the science and practice of dentistry which may be applied to help solve litigation in both criminal and civil cases.

It is a specialist branch of dentistry that assists the legal system in the handling, analysis and interpretation of dental evidence. Forensic Odontology: Principles and Practice pulls together the very latest research findings and advice on best practice and essential skills, including aspects of forensic science that provide a well-rounded educational experience for the reader.

Chapters provide coverage of anatomy and morphology, mortuary techniques, physical anthropology, applied forensic sciences, child and elder abuse, and facial approximation.

The text introduces the various topics and discusses underpinning philosophies without being an exhaustive historical treatise.

Appropriate case studies are used to highlight issues, and references to current research are provided to stimulate further reading and research. Written by experienced practitioners in the field, this informative introductory text is invaluable to graduate and undergraduate students, as well as experienced dentists, wishing to gain experience or pursue a career in forensic odontology.

This text will be a welcome addition to the forensic odontological libraries of all practicing forensic odontologists.
