    Abstract

    In 1981, the Bite mark Standards Committee of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and the American Board of Forensic Odontology developed a method of scoring bite mark comparisons in an attempt to standardize a scientific approach to bite mark analysis. The various methods of determining the validity of the scoring guide are presented with statistical data generated from scores reported by recognized forensic science experts.
