  Scope of the Journal

JFDS publishes scientific papers on well designed and controlled original research involving forensic science, reports on unusual and interesting case presentations.

Indian Association of Forensic Odontology

Forensic odontology is the branch of dentistry that deals with the proper handling and examination of dental evidence and with proper evaluation and presentation of dental findings in the interest of justice. Forensic odontology is emerging as a potential branch in dentistry and awareness of this speciality among the dental fraternity is unfortunately less in India compared to the rest of the world. Indian Association of Forensic Odontology (IAFO) was started in the year 2002, with the aim of promoting awareness of forensic odontology among the medical and dental professionals and the keepers of law and justice. It also aims at conducting active research and interactive state and national level conference/symposia in this field and thereby contributes to the ever expanding science of forensic medicine.
