Dental analysis and its interpretation play a key role in the process of forensic identification. Dental methods are highly reliable to estimate the age of the individual, especially in cases of sub-adults. The scientific advances and the improved imaging technologies enabled the development of a number of age estimation methods for sub-adult and adults individuals. Since teeth are one of the most preserved skeletal material in fire exposure, they are extremely valuable for identification purposes. Nevertheless, the changes in teeth and surrounding skeletal structures by the fire should be understood for a proper interpretation.

The didactic portion of the course will cover dental anatomy and physiology, dental age estimation in sub-adult and adult individuals, the process of dental identification, the use of dental identification softwares, the role of the odontologists in a mass disaster scenario, dental and maxillofacial trauma and the analysis of burnt remains, and bite mark examination.

The course is divided into 5 modules; each module include 5 or 6 lectures. We will dedicate 3 days per module, through this time the participants can watch the video lectures at their convenience, and we will have a live session of Q&A at the end of each module, where we will address any questions and discuss the topics of the module
