BC-FORT Volunteer Weekend
British Columbia Forensic Odontology Response Team (BC FORT)
Dr. Darcy Murphy and other members of BC FORT spent an August weekend at the University of British Columbia punching in data into a data base soon to be used to identify missing loved ones. The purpose is to add ante-mortem (alive) and post-mortem (deceased) dental records of missing people into a data base where they can be later matched for either a positive or negative identification. In addition to dental records, finger prints, in person confirmation of identification and DNA comparisons, are also used.
See below for a few pictures of the weekend.
