American Board of Forensic Odontology
American Board of Forensic Odontology
The objective of the Board is to establish, enhance, and revise as necessary, standards of qualifications for those who practice forensic odontology, and to certify as qualified specialists those voluntary applicants who comply with the requirements of the Board. In this way, the Board aims to make available a practical and equitable system for readily identifying those persons professing to be specialists in forensic odontology who possess the requisite qualifications and competence.
The need to identify forensic scientists unequivocally qualified to provide essential professional services for the Nation's judicial and executive branches of government has long been recognized. In response to this professional mandate, The American Board of Forensic Odontology was organized in 1976 under the auspices of the National Institute of Justice.
The ABFO is comprised of individuals who are national and world renowned experts. The ABFO is recognized by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences as a forensic specialty that offers board certification to its members.
