Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the correlation of eruptive stages of third molars between right and left side in upper and lower jaws. Material and methods: The sample for this study consisted of 529 OPGs of 264 49.9% male and 265 50.1% female subjects, aged 8 to 25 years, divided into six groups, with known chronological age, by Olze method. Results: there was a high Spearman’s correlation coefficient between eruptive stages of the right and left lower and upper third molars. Overall, no significant differences were found in third molar eruption between males and females. Conclusion: We recommend using third molars in lower jaws for assessing the dental age by Olze method on Bosnian and Herzegovinian population by using our results. It is important to mention that forensic odontologists must be aware of the fact that asymmetry in development is possible. Both sides should be independently evaluated.
