About the Book

Forensic Dental Evidence, 2nd Edition establishes a foundation for dental investigation methodology - not only the reasons and the need behind the protocols, but the processes that should be used in gathering and preserving evidence to extract vital physical (impression) or biological (DNA) information. Included are details on how to identify various types of dental evidence, how to document, collect and preserve the evidence and the legal requirements regarding collection, storage and chain of custody issues. This new edition will be of great utility for forensic scientists and law enforcement involved in processing crime scenes, conducting criminal investigations, and analyzing crime scene and dental evidence. This book will also serve as an excellent reference for other forensic professionals such as: medical examiners, forensic pathologists, crime scene investigators, who are often called on as expert witnesses. Defense and prosecuting attorneys will also find this title a must have for their library. * Provides the basis of knowledge and training in forensic odontology that will extend into crime scene investigations and the crime laboratory. * Contains over 200 photographs of crime scene evidence and bitemark details. * Offers previously unavailable facts on digital comparison techniques and the latest technology used in photographing and recording dental evidence.
