Did my inspection last night.  The Bio was easy going.

this was his first bear with the new process so he was learning as he went.  I asked why this was being done and was told this is a way to figure out age and gender of bears being harvested in the spring to see impact on populations (basically taking a spring sow impact populations more than later in the year).  So it does appear to be a way to gather data to prove/disprove impact of spring bear hunting (as suspected).  He did say that he can choose SOW, or lactating SOW in his options so make sure the right one is selected if you picked up a sow.

One thing I found worrisome was that  there was no "receipt" of our interaction to prove I went through the process.

The Bio gave me his card and said I could send him an email that he would reply to confirming the pelt submission, and tooth collection.  I did so, and he replied.  I would recommend everyone do this!

Does anyone know if hunters who submit teeth get a report of the age of the bear harvested?

Yes, it takes about 8-10 months to get the age.  They have a site you enter your wild ID in and it will tell you.

It is cool, you can send in other teeth as well, and all the info stays on the board, I have ages from moose, bear and cougar on my list.

I got my inspection done this evening. Really easy. Called fish and game this AM, left messages both for the pierce and king county regions since I am in Buckley. I got call backs from both offices within 2 or 3 hours. Met a Bio in Enumclaw at 3PM. I asked him about this information being used against hunters and he responded with it very well could be if hunters shoot a bunch of lactating sows. But if a bunch of boars get checked it will help in the future for more permits.
