I too looked at OMIM (WAIS is neat!) and found a couple of other refs that
might (?) be applicable:

Schultz, AH, "Inherited reduction in the dentition of man", Human Biol.
6:627-631 (1934).

Erwin, WG, & Cockern, RW, Hered. 40:215-218 (1949).

Grahnen, H., "Hypodontia in the premanent dentition", Odont. Rev.
7 (suppl. 3):1-100 (1956).

There's also another personnal communication on the subject from Gorlin,
dated '82.  He looks like someone to search for.
