A forensic dentist says people should be patient as teams work to identify the bodies recovered from Whakaari-White Island, because speed is dangerous. Dr David Antunovic says Interpol will have been working to bring the dental records of the missing people to New Zealand, so dentists can work to match them. He told First Up's Lydia Batham why teeth are important in identifying people.
