Summary

You will study:

Dental identification and profiling
Disaster victim identification
Age estimation from dental sources
Dental report writing and giving evidence

Studying alongside students in forensic medicine and law means you will gain an understanding of the role of other forensic disciplines and identify when, where, and how forensic dentistry links with the wider forensic community.
