Forensic odontology – a routine case and commentary – Full Text

This paper, written for the general practitioner, mentions bitemarks only in passing. The majority of the paper is devoted to an identification case.  Again this included in the literature library for completeness rather than any substantive contribution to bitemark science.  Written by Levine – an ABFO diplomate and an outspoken supporter of bitemarks.

He was famously covered by a US TV piece where he stated that bitemarks were science, but just couldnt be tested.  Probably a need to go and look at the definition of science.
