Despite that the human genome has over 3.2 billion "letters" in it, 99.9% of the DNA in all unrelated people in the world are identical. The vast differences observed in the human race are created from the minute differences in only 0.1% of DNA.
Surprisingly, DNA test conducted by simply swabbing inside the cheek (mouth) is equivalent to a traditional blood sample test. Because of its simplicity in collecting, non-invasiveness, painless, and ease of handling/shipping, it has become the choice for DNA sampling.
The procedure is so simple that everyone can literally collect their own sample. However, in many situations such as a legal matter where sampling is required, self-sampling would not be admissible due to lapse in Chain of Custody. That is where we can help. We can collect swab samples for such purposes as:
Nationwide, approximate 30% of tested men are excluded as the biological father.
Finding a long lost aunt or uncle, brother or sister.
Finding out biological parents in cases where adopted children are now fully grown.
U.S. citizens can petition for alien relatives such as spouses, parents, children or siblings to immigrate here.
Because biological children of deceased individuals generally have inheritance rights, DNA is being used more and more to challenge estates.
A child goes missing every 40 seconds in the U.S. (over 2100 per day). Knowing your child's DNA profile is the only way to guarantee that it is available when you need it most.
Because we are oral health providers, we can reliable be counted on to collect untainted samples for your needs.
