Forensic Odontology

Hello Science/Med/Pathologists,

Over on the Dentistry Forum I’m trying to put together a folder of
requests from investigators seeking information to identify unknown
victims of crimes or accidents using dental charting.
Have been out on the Web but don’t find any sites listing such calls
for dental information. I guess I need to know if pathologists or
coroners or investigators have a central location where they describe
dental details and request matches of antemortem dental records to
their victim’s characteristics? Are these kinds of requests published
in your professional journals? I only rarely see such a call for
information in our dental print media.
Any help on where I can turn for this kind of information?
Thanks,
Frank H. Schmdit, DDS

    Check with the FBI, they have databases of various types.
