The science and knowledge of forensic odontology: repositioning the dentist in the legal environment
AbstractThis paper was based on a survey of the knowledge of forensic odontology among professionals in medicine, dentistry, law and the law enforcement agents. The results show low level knowledge of forensic odontology among the professionals. It is recommended that forensic odontology be introduced as a course in dental schools as is the practice in some developed countries.
Key words: Forensic odontology, professional knowledge, legal environment
