An opening statement.

To be honest, this ABFO generated material is nothing new. What is typical, along with the personal attacks,  is the absence of meaningful point-by-point discussion of scientific (i.e. the 2009 NAS Report) and exoneration case evaluation. It also provides the un-informed dental community with less than a balanced presentation of the facts. You might see why the American Dental Association does not consider this group a certified dental specialty.

What is also missing is the context of what is currently going on in the real world of forensic dentistry. As in, Bitemark Evidence may put Eddie Lee Howard in the Death Chamber of Mississippi.

None of this small group has assisted the Mississippi Innocence Project in this matter.
