Cleaning teeth in the name of science!

Dr. Mindy Pitre and several anthropology majors have been simmering human teeth in the name of science. Maria Bernard '12, Abby van Geldern '12, Brooke Fernandez '13, and Erika Davin '13 have been working with Dr. Pitre to build a tooth teaching collection for the Anthropology Laboratory in Piskor Hall. The team has been cleaning the teeth in order to prepare them for Dr. Pitre’s upcoming “Bones of Contention” course offered in Spring ’12. The teeth have been generously donated by local dentists/residents of St. Lawrence County.
