In every case, we asked the patient or parent whether we could take an impression for health, origins, and genetic research. The markedly cariogenic diet of both Hopi and Navajo individuals ensured a steady stream of clinic visitors. 1 lists the ASU degree production in dental anthropology. Several theses and dissertations were based on ASU cast and osteological specimens. 2 lists the visitors who worked in dental anthropology. Several spent time in discussions with various students whose research interests were shared by the visitors.

Many of these features are (relatively) straightforward to quantify with a high degree of precision and accuracy, and methodologies for doing so have been reported (Brook et al. 1983, 1999; Smith et al. 2009). The dentition is bilateral, a structure that enables the roles of genes and environment in the development of asymmetry (both fluctuating and directional) to be examined. There is growing evidence that the dentition satisfies the requirements of a complex system, in which lower-level, interacting components give rise to higher-level, emergent phenomena.
