The best contact is Dr. Stephen Schmidt out of San Antonio, Texas. I do not
have his address or phone number but I think he retired from the AF and is
still in that area. He is well know for his work using RP in the dental and
medical reconstruction of facial bones involving teeth and such. Does
anyone have his contact information? Are you listening Stephen?
