Dr. Richard Thomas “Tom” Glass is a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologist who for over 40 years treated patients clinically and performed microscopic analyses on humans and animals. He has published over 125 articles and abstracts on a wide range of topics in peer-reviewed journals and has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Lecturers in Continuing Dental Education. His published research on transmission of both oral and systemic infectious diseases by toothbrushes, toothpaste, toothpicks, floss, dentures, make-up, contact lenses, protective athletic mouth-guards, band musical instruments, and pacifiers has led to important changes in use and care of these devices. He has also published studies on HIV/AIDS and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He is presently Professor of Forensic Sciences, Pathology, and Dental Medicine and Adjunct Professor of Microbiology at Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is also Professor Emeritus of Oral Pathology from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. For over 23 years, he was the Chief Forensic Dentist for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (Oklahoma). While he has been involved in over 4000 medical-legal cases in his career, he is probably best known for directing the dental team that identified the 167 bodies in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. He has recently had a textbook published entitled, Practical Forensic Dentistry, to aid dental personnel with the forensic aspects of their practice.
