Starting a career in odontology

Many people ask – how do I get started and begin a career in odontology?  Well there is one simple answer – first you need a dental degree!  Having said that, hygenists and therapists also work in forensic dentistry – although this is not widespread, and they cant become members of the AAFS Odontology Section.

Why not watch this webinar hosted by Drs Adam Freeman and Robert Barsley – both senior forensic dentists and Fellows of the AAFS.  They take you through the main steps that you should consider when approaching forensic dentistry – but remember, its unlikely to be a full time position – and the hours and attendance at mortuaries often suit those who work part time, in academic positions or who are semi-retired.

All good advice – and why not let us know how you got started in odontology?
