Dental Forensics:
Diplomate, American Board of Forensic Dentistry

I am a practicing general dentist in the San Diego area since 1971 and act as a consultant, technical investigator, and expert witness for several attorneys and insurance companies since 1982, mainly in the dental malpractice and personal injury/workmen’s compensation fields. I am board certified as a “Diplomate of the American Board of Forensic Dentistry” and a member of the American College of Forensic Examiners.

I review cases from a technical perspective and enumerate their strong and weak elements. At the attorney’s discretion, I provide instruction necessary for understanding of the specialized aspects of a case for the attorney, jury, etc. Specific questions for witnesses can be recommended for use during deposition / hearing / trial; including areas of anticipated inquiry by opposing parties. Deposition transcript page / line summaries, Independent Dental Exams and reports, written and verbal, are available.

Most of my background research is facilitated by computer searching all relevant databases at the National Library of Medicine, other medical/dental databases, and most major news services. Additionally, I utilize the Special Reference Library at the American Dental Association. These sources provide the bulk of my supporting evidence for testimony about the relevant Standard-of-Care, acceptable techniques, materials, opinions, etc., of the organized published profession during specified time periods. I also possess and utilize “AcuCam”TM high resolution extra / intraoral macrovideo imaging, photography, FAX, computer based FAX, text / graphic scanning and editing, and word-processing / desktop publishing facilities for my reports and case evaluations.
