This text on forensic dentistry does not attempt to give instructions for how to practice each phase of forensic odontology; rather, it looks at the development, current state, and future of the field. Coverage encompasses death investigation systems, human identification, fingerprints and DNA evidence, and forensic anthropology, in addition to forensic dental radiography and photography, dental identification in multiple fatality accidents, bite marks, and evidence management. Many color and b&w photos are included. This second edition is expanded to cover developments over the past 10 years. New topics include forensic dental radiology, age estimation, and jurisprudence and legal issues. There is a new appendix of landmark federal and state cases. Senn teaches in the Department of Dental Diagnostic Science at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Stimson is emeritus professor at the University of Texas Dental Branch.
