Dr. Steffen Fieuws voor zijn onmisbare begeleiding, die mij het gevoel gaf over een extra copromotor te beschikken.
Iedereen, die wereldwijd, meehielp aan het verzamelen van data.
Alle “Master in forensic odontology”-studenten die ik begeleidde. Ieder van hen werkte op haar of zijn manier inspirerend.
Ali om mij telkens op de hoogte te houden van nodige administratieve regelingen.
De Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, omdat ik deel mocht uitmaken van haar onderzoeksgroep.

Opgedragen aan:


Benoit, Els en Vincent voor alle tijd die ik niet aan hen kon spenderen.
