New York Society of Forensic Dentistry

The New York Society of Forensic Dentistry has been in existence since 1984 and primarily functions as a resource for interested Dentists, Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Dental Students and others with ties to dentistry for the purpose of advancing the field of Forensic Odontology through the shared experiences and knowledge of its members.

Our membership is also composed of forensic odontologists who are affiliated with NY, NJ, PA and Connecticut Forensic Dental Teams who are responders for not only in local but also national disasters. Our membership has been involved in 911, Katrina and on a Federal Level, DMORT and assisting with FBI NCIC and NamUs identifications. On an individual level, members teach at local dental schools and are actively involved in hospital teaching environments lecturing and helping to advance the field of Forensic Odontology.

Our organization holds monthly/bimonthly meetings bringing in not only local, but national and international experts in the field of Forensic Odontology for the purpose of educating and broadening the horizons of knowledge for our membership.

We welcome you to our website. Please take advantage of our resources and our knowledge.
