Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

Forensic Dentistry

Welcome to this course on forensic dentistry.

Forensic dentists are involved in assisting investigative agencies to identify recovered human remains in addition to the identification of whole or fragmented bodies. They may also be asked to help in determining age, race, occupation, previous dental history and socioeconomic status of unidentified human beings.

The Forensic Dentistry online learning module has clear and concise aims, objectives and anticipated outcomes, listed below. These will appear on the Dentaljuce Enhanced CPD Certificate, along with the time spent, dates, and detailed topics you studied within the module. Certificates can be printed at any time, covering any range of dates. Dentaljuce CPD complies with the UK GDC's requirements for enhanced verifiable continuing professional development.
