About

In this MSc Forensic Dentistry from the University of Dundee you will develop your forensic odontology skills through case studies.

Overview

This MSc Forensic Dentistry from the University of Dundee deals with the examination, handling, and presentation of dental evidence for the legal system.

You will develop your knowledge, experience and skills in forensic dentistry, and in aspects of forensic medicine, law and research. 

You will study:

  • dental identification and profiling
  • disaster victim identification
  • age estimation from dental sources
  • dental report writing and giving evidence
  • limitations of bite mark identification

Studying alongside students in forensic medicine and law means you will gain an understanding of the role of other forensic disciplines and identify when, where, and how forensic dentistry links with the wider forensic community.

Careers

You can go on to work in a regular dental practice and provide expert opinion when requested by coroners or procurator fiscals, police, and solicitors.

Some forensic dentists work in cases involving dental insurance fraud and litigation cases.

Many countries have established a Disaster Victim Identification team and forensic dentists are an important part of it. You can also be deployed as a team member of a privately held company.
