The American Board of Forensic Odontology will present an Age Assessment Workshop in conjunction with the 2019 AAFS Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.  A portion of the Workshop will be completed by attending a pre-workshop webinar and the hands-on portion will be held on Sunday February 17, 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland.  The Workshop will offer two forms of participation – “participants” and “attendees”.


Workshop Objectives:

All registered individuals will receive didactic instruction regarding the scientific rational and techniques of dental age estimation of infants, children, adolescents and adults.   Although the workshops primary focus is dental age assessment, a significant portion of the lecture presentations will also address anthropologic aging including fetal age estimation, epiphyseal fusion, long bone length, bone ossification and hand/wrist evaluation.  In addition, all in attendance will receive instruction in the components and preparation of dental age estimation report writing. Those enrolled will also have the opportunity to perform hands-on age estimation utilizing the numerous techniques presented.


At the end of the Workshop, “Participants” will be given three dental age estimation cases and will be asked to perform age estimation through clinical and radiographic examination; then submit a written report for each case.  The reports will be evaluated by members of the ABFO Age Assessment Committee and the results will be provided to the ABFO Certification and Examination Committee.  Those participants who meet the age assessment and report writing standards will receive credit for up to three age estimation cases toward ABFO board case credit.


Attendees will receive eleven (11) hours of dental participation continuing education credit.

Participants will receive twenty (20) hours of dental participation credit.


Prerequisites for registration in the workshop are:

  1. PC laptop computer with USB port.
  2. Practical knowledge and usage of imaging software on their laptop computer.


“Participants” and “Attendees” must have a DMD, DDS or equivalent degree. (Registered Dental Hygienists are welcome to register if they actively use dental age assessment techniques).
