In brief: Many places
The iliac crest remains the most frequently used site for bone-graft harvest, but the proximal part of the tibia, distal end of the radius, distal aspect of the tibia, and greater trochanter are alternative donor sites that are particularly useful for bone-grafting in the ipsilateral extremity.

In addition, taking from within the oral cavity is an option. For example, the ramus of the mandible, the symphyseal region (chin) or coronoid. If larger amounts of bone are required, then as mentioned, the iliac crest (hip) or tibia are commonly used as harvest sites.

In brief: Chin, back of ramus
Many sites can be a donor sites.
I first look for tori. If tori is not present, the back of the ramus is the next place (behind the 3rd molar area), then the chin, then the hip. Usually i will try the bmps prior to go for the chin and the hip, since bmp eliminates the donor site and heal likes using patient own bone (autogenous bone graft).
