    Editorial Reviews

    Very much needed not only to encourage dentists to study forensics but also for medical examiners to use our expertise to help them in their work.
    — David Moretz, DDS

    Dr. Silver and Dr. Souviron have just completed a must read text. From the novice odontologist to the seasoned expert, Dental Autopsy should be in everyone’s personal library of texts.
    —Adam J. Freeman, DDS, D-ABFO, President, American Society of Forensic Odontology

    One of the most valuable aspects of the book is that it has been illustrated with more than 300 color photos. … an essential resource for medical examiners, investigators, dental specialists, lawyers, and expert witnesses.
    Anil Aggrawal's Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, Volume 10, Number 2, July - December 2009

    I found the book to be entertaining and educational. I appreciated the authors' detail. The layout of the book is very orderly and systematic, but also informal
    and casual. This makes the book very easy to follow.
    —Michael Louria, DMD, Today’s FDA
