Downloading and Installing WinID3 Dental Training Module I Richard M. Scanlon, D.M.D.
Digital dental radiography is rapidly becoming the standard for use in mass fatality incidents. As a result, it will now be absolutely critical to the mission of a disaster dental identification team for it’s members to be proficient in the use of the WinID3 computer program. While only a few members need to be capable with digital radiography and scanning of dental antemortem radiographs, all dental team members must be WinID3 capable in order to enter records search a database and complete a comparison of antemortem and postmortem records. INTRODUCTION
In order to meet this mission requirement, dental team members will need to train and be familiar with WinID3 before a deployment. In order to accomplish this task, I have produced a series of training modules to assist disaster dental team members with their training in basic and optional WinID tasks. The next slide will outline the training that will be presented in these series of modules.

Downloading WinID3 The following series of slides will show how to download WinID3 from the internet. We could just distribute the program, but it is better to download since WinID3 is often updated. If you can download from the internet you will have the ability to maintain the latest version.
Downloading WinID3 However, we recognize that not all members will be able to download a program from the internet, so the programs required for training are available on the disk with the first module. Please attempt the downloads first and only if you are unable to download should you use the programs on the disk
The following screens will show how to access, download and install WinID3 from the internet. Some will find the series overly simplistic, but this is so all levels of computer expertise may perform these computer functions. The screen graphics are of Microsoft Windows XP Professional, but should not differ greatly from the other Microsoft Windows operating systems. To best use this training module, you should review the series at least once before attempting the download and installation. Downloading WinID3
Once WinID3 is downloaded and installed, it has a small database for use in training. I will be distributing a much larger database with digital radiographs that will be used for more realistic training after the essentials of WinID3 have been learned. WinID3 Training
Downloading WinID3 Downloading is a simple task and can be accomplished easily and quickly. Be sure that your internet service in not interrupted by outside sources or you may have to redo the download. Before beginning, you should make a folder to hold the downloading WinID3 program. This can be done by clicking on “My Computer “ and then clicking in the Hard Disk Drive (usually labeled “C”). The next few steps will guide you in this process. Also any references to clicking on the screen are left button clicks. Right button clicks will be noted.

Click the “SAVE” Button. Again it is safe to do this with this type of file. Some computer viruses are command files. This is why they warn the person attempting these operations. It is safe to download this file.
After you click Save, a folder will open. It will probably not be the “HOLD” folder made previously for this download. You should click on the small blue square, and it will open up a computer window.
The window is now open, you click on the hard drive you placed the “HOLD” Folder in previously. This is should be the “C” local drive in most computers.
After you click on the “C Disk” the window for the hard drive opens. Find the “Hold” Folder and double click on it.
The “Hold” Folder is now open to store the compressed WinID3 files to be downloaded. To start the download, click on the “SAVE” button. The Files will download automatically.

For this demonstration we will double click on “SAMPLE”. It is a small database that has been supplied with WinID3. WinID3 will now begin to start, but before the WinID3 program can run, you need to choose a database. The database is the file with all the dental information and radiographs. To choose a particular database, click on the database you wish to use and it will be selected and the WinID3 will open.

This concludes the training module “Downloading and Installing WinID3”. Please feel free to have fun with the program, and even change and alter the database named “Sample”. Don’t worry if you ruin it, we will be using another database when we start training with WinID3. If you cannot download or install WinID3 after reading these instructions, see if a friend or family member can help. If not, notify me at: and we will get you assistance. For those who are hopelessly computer challenged, we will provide a training session before training so that all dental members may be trained in the use of Thanks for you attention and support.
