SAN JOSE, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2004--Like fingerprints, dental imprints are unique to every person, so bite impressions can serve as an accurate method of identification. Toothprints are especially important now because the successful fight against tooth decay has left many children without cavities and, thus, no dental records.

Toothprints is a patented, arch-shapped thermo plastic wafer. When a child bites into the softened wafer, it records individual tooth characteristics. The painless procedure takes only a few minutes. The hardened toothprint is stored at home in a zippered platic bag.

An unrinsed toothprint also captures saliva, which is a powerful source of scent and DNA. The scent makes it effective for police dog tracking.

As a parent, San Jose dentist Dr. Kimberly Loos believes the Toothprints® dental ID can be extremely valuable in the event a child is lost or abducted. Dr. Loos offers this service for $10. This nominal fee helps cover the cost of materials. Office time is donated. In the future, she hopes to protect more children by expanding this program to other dental offices and further reduce the associated cost.
