Outstanding preservation of the juvenile dentition of individualsrecovered during the 2013 Milwaukee County Institution Grounds (MCIG) Poor Farm Cemetery project allowed for the application of four separate dental age assessments. We present the results of a pilot study that attempts to broaden the utility of the Moorrees et al. (1963a, b) tooth formation stages through their application to maxillary dentition and mandibular incisors from a sample of sub-adults from the MCIG cemetery. Tooth formation stages are correlated with other dental and osteometric assessments of age to provide a preliminary, population-specific expansion of methods.
