The Civil Litigation Committee of the American Board of Forensic Odontology will present a Workshop on Expert Witness Testimony at (Hotel to be announced in Orlando, FL). It will be held all day Sunday, February 12, 2023. Participants and Observers 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 and Observers to the Workshop.

 

The Workshop will accept both “Expert Witness” participants as well as observers. All attendees will have access to the case and all educational materials prior to the session and either participate or observe the Saturday mock trial session. The case presented at the Workshop will be a “Standard of Care” case. The educational materials will include presentations by experienced expert witnesses and advice on all aspects of expert witness preparation and forensic report writing. These presentations will cover pertinent topics such as guidelines for Expert Witnesses and relevant Standards of Care in Dentistry.

 

The participants will be required to submit a written forensic report on their findings in this assigned case as either a plaintiff or defense witness, which will be assigned at the time of the receipt of the case. The Saturday session will feature “testimony” by the “Expert Witness” participants in a mock trial format that includes a judge, jury, and trial lawyers. Lunch will be provided.

A certificate of attendance will be provided to all attendees for 25 accumulated hours of forensic education for reviewing the educational material and attendance at this Workshop. These hours are not PACE Program approved.
