Richard Thomas Glass, DDS, PhD
P: (918) 561-8240
Dr. Glass is a board-certified oral and maxillofacial pathologist, who for more than 40 years has treated patients clinically, including those who had cancer, AIDS, and chronic fatigue syndrome. For more than 23 of those years, he was also the chief forensic dentist for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (Oklahoma). He is presently a professor of forensic sciences, pathology, and dental medicine and an adjunct professor of microbiology at Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences in Tulsa. While he has been involved in more than 4,000 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 this aspect of their practice. His published research in transmission of both oral and systemic diseases by toothbrushes, toothpaste, toothpicks, floss, dentures, makeup, contact lenses, protective athletic mouthguards, musical wind 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.
