About Andrew Forgie

My interest in forensics started as an undergraduate when I undertook my six week elective with the Royal Air Force working on the Lockerbie Air Crash data, developing a computer based system to help with identification using dental records during mass disasters and helping with post mortems of air crash victims.  After a spell in practice with only minimal forensic involvement I returned to Dundee University  in 1994 and started to undertake more work.  In 2011 I started working in the Centre for Forensic and Legal Medicine at Dundee University increasing my case work and establishing a Masters in Forensic Odontology and supervising PhD students in the topic.

On a more general basis I qualified BDS in 1989 from Dundee and after a spell in practice including as a principal I returned to undertake a PhD looking at eyesight and magnification in dentistry.  I then completed specialist training in restorative dentistry in 2005. As a consultant I have worked at Dundee Dental School and NHS Education for Scotland and in 2017 moved full time to Glasgow University as a Senior Clinical University Tutor with a focus on prosthodontics.
