Dr. Tom Routledge

Coquitlam, British Columbia

We are very pleased to honour forensic odontologist, Dr. Tom Routledge, who has created an innovative provincial database for the identification of human remains. What he has done, as a volunteer, while at the same time running a full time dental practice, is design, develop, implement and maintain the Province’s dental database for the Identification and Disaster Response Unit of the BC Coroner’s Service. The work of Dr. Routledge and his team on the development of this database was a first in Canada and offers critical closure and comfort to countless BC families and law enforcement.
