Fascinating Forensics - The CSI of Pediatric Dentistry
James Downs, M.D.; Rod Englert; Dayle Hinman
Ever want to do more in your community but not sure how to get involved? Does forensic dentistry picque your interest? Do you ever wonder how some of those high-profile cases get solved? Are you a "CSI" junkie? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will not want to miss the preconference course this year! We have assembled three experts in their field to include: an FBI pathologist, a criminal profiler and investigator and an expert in crime scene reconstruction and blood spatter interpretation.
If you’re wondering what this has to do with pediatric dentistry, sign up for the course to find out. Learn what other pediatric dentists are doing in their communities to give back and help with disaster recovery efforts.
The titles of each presentation are:
The Devil is in the Details: Criminal Profiling from an Investigators Perspective (Hinman)
Get Acquainted with the CSI Effect in America Especially in High-Profile Cases (Englert)
After this presentation, attendees will be able to:
Understand the importance of forensic physical evidence in criminal trials;
Understand the importance of blood patterns at crime scenes and how the blood can be read;
Understand how homicide scenes are reconstructed using physical evidence from the crime scene and see actual examples of putting the pieces back together in some murder cases.
