Authors Response Sir: How big is big enough? Sample size and the uniqueness of the dentition. Dr. Bowers raises issues about the untestability of bitemark applications and sample size, and how they bear on the presumed uniqueness to the human anterior dentition. These are issues that are well worth wrestling with. Bowers sympathizes with our view that bitemark analysis rests on two foundational assumptions, but thinks we failed to address the reliable transference of this uniqueness to resulting bitemarks on bruised skin. We fully agree.
