    Is anyone interested in becoming a forensic dentist? It seems very interesting. Does anyone know how long you have to study to become one?

    I don't think you'll find many people interested in forensic odontology.

    I know there's more to it but really, the idea of investigating bitemarks and a corpse's teeth is kind of .......weird.

    People interested in the dead would normally go for autopsy pathology training instead.

    One of the world's leading forensic dentists in on staff at UNLV. He was on-call for the Sept. 11th attack, and works all the major cases in the US and abroad. Because of this, UNLV is planning on opening a forensic dentistry specialty in a couple of years.
