The American Board of Forensic Odontology will present an Age Estimation Workshop in conjunction with the
2017 AAFS Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. A portion of the Workshop will be completed by attending a
webinar and the hands-on portion will be held on Saturday, February 18, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The
Workshop will offer two forms of participation – “participants” and “attendees”.
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
estimation, 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
attendees will receive instruction in preparation and components of dental age estimation report writing and will
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 estimation
and report writing standards will receive credit for up to three age estimation cases toward ABFO board case
Attendees will receive eleven (11) hours of dental participation continuing education credit given through the
