CONTENT SUMMARY: (optional, you might referenced the text)


This is a lesson that introduces the role of dental structures that can assist in forensic investigation.
Forensic dentistry provides scientific methods to assist in identification of victims related to crime or

accident. To assist with forensic dentistry, dental professionals need to be aware of the importance of
keeping accurate, current, detailed and legible dental records for the use of identification. The subsequent
information will provide an overview of forensic dentistry history, various identification methods utilized
and how dental professionals can become involved. During this lesson the student should be able to link
the concepts of forensic investigation to the knowledge on oral anatomy, histology and pathology/disease
that was previously taught in Oral and Dental Anatomy, Oral Histology and Embryology, Oral and
Maxillofacial Pathology, Oral Medicine and Oral radiology.
PROCEDURES
Step 1: The teacher introduces the lesson by sharing importance of dental tissues in forensic investigation.
In this process, teacher will ask students about the role and significance of dental structures in
forensic investigation. Teacher will also ask students to share about their knowledge on influence
of dental structures in forensic investigation. (if any)
Step 2: Use PowerPoint/Prezi presentation to present major points for discussion
Step 3: Teacher student discussion (using question and answer approach) to further elucidate the
importance of dental structures in forensic dentistry.
Step 4: Formative assessment activity in the form of RSQC 2
Step 5: Guided discussion to use reference books, journals and website to incorporate the evidence based
teaching and learning in the dental education at The University of the West Indies.
