  1. Wow! Pretty amazing and inspiring Elijah! I found the information very helpful. Thanks for the great interview Mark and Elijah!

  2. Hello, I am a dental assistant of 30 years and am looking to get out of the clinical setting for the rest of my career. Can you direct me to any info or ideas on how or what to do to accomplish this?
    Great interview, btw!
    Thank you,

  3. I have been looking into Forensic Dentistry. I realize it is mostly volunteer, but I would LOVE to be part of a forensic team. However, I do not know how to get started. I have joined a few Forensic Dentistry forums and I joined the American Board of Forensic Odontology. They send really cool articles and stuff, but no information on how to get started.
    Do I contact the Coroner for my county? Or the Medical Examiner?
    Any suggestions would be great!
