Dear Free-Range Kids: I thought you might be interested to see this. A local dentist was advertising this service.
Now if your child’s body is found but so decomposed that it can’t be
identified visually, you can use “toothprints” to record his/her
dental records so he/she can be identified. It apparently also helps
scent dogs track your child’s body to find it.
This is really, really morbid. I can’t believe parents spend money on
this kind of thing. The local police gave us a kit to fingerprint our
kids and save a DNA sample in case either of them were killed in some
gory way, and I didn’t even save the free kit. I can’t imagine
spending money to do this. — Nicole
