The American Board of Forensic Odontology will present an Age Assessment Workshop in conjunction with the 2025 AAFS Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. The Workshop will consist of both a didactic and hands-on course design. It is now a 2-day event and will be held on Saturday and Sunday February 15-16, 2025, in Baltimore, Maryland. The Workshop will offer one form of enrollment: “Participants”.

 

Participants must have a DMD, DDS, or equivalent degree. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The ABFO reserves the right to limit the number of Participants to the Workshop.

 

Workshop Objectives:
All registered individuals will receive didactic instruction regarding the scientific rationale and techniques of dental age estimation of infants, children, adolescents, and adults. Although the workshop’s primary focus is dental age assessment, a 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. “PARTICIPANTS” will practice 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 photographic and radiographic examination; then submit a written report for each case. The reports will be evaluated by members of the ABFO Dental Age Assessment Committee, and the results will be provided to the ABFO Certification and Examination Committee. Those “Participants” who meet the dental age assessment and report writing standard will receive credit for up to three age estimation cases toward ABFO board case credit.

 

Participants” will receive twenty-five (25) hours of dental participation credit.
