Forensic dental services can provide detailed reports on bitemarks and we believe in a staged reporting approach. Using the latest technologies and techniques we can provide reports for investigators and provide case review assessments of bitemark analyses for defence teams..
We routinely work pro bono for innocence projects around the world where bitemark evidence has been involved in cases of wrongful conviction.
