The hurt keeps coming onto “board certified” dentists continuing to be members of  the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and are also members of  the AAFS  “recognized” American Board of Forensic Odontology.

Both of these  forensic organizations refuse to investigate members cases of bitemark forensics aiding wrongful convictions. They are interested in other things.

Description of Bite Mark Exonerations and Erroneous Arrests

See an earlier CSIDDS blog on a man factually innocent (via post conviction DNA and recanting bitemark experts) but still considered guilty by the California Supreme Court. This is not a case where other governors could not  tell the difference between an innocent man and a guilty one. The CA governor, Jerry Brown, has been presented with pleadings requesting pardons in this case and 11 other California Innocent Project clients.
