It’s a dangerous time to own a dental practice. Many people with criminal intent consider dental offices to be prime targets for their activities. In the “internet era” an alarm system isn’t sufficient to protect you, but there are things every practice can do to make themselves less appealing to criminals.
Some of the topics covered include:
David Harris founded Prosperident, the world’s largest dental embezzlement investigations firm, in 1989 after what could only be called a “happy twist of fate”.
Under David’s leadership, Prosperident has expanded over the past quarter-century to become a team of specialized investigators, consulting on hundreds of embezzlements annually. David’s vast investigative experience, coupled with his own misadventures as a miscreant youth, have given him a unique insight into the mind set and actions of embezzlers. He is passionate about sharing this wealth of knowledge with dentists.
David believes that the best educational experiences are enhanced through humor, and his entertaining and insightful presentation style has made him a favorite presenter at regional, national and international dental conferences.
Many leading dental publications and organizations have interviewed David on the subject of embezzlement. He is also a prolific writer and authors a dozen or more articles annually that appear in major dental publications. He has lectured at several universities in both the USA and Canada in the faculties of business, law and dentistry.
David is a CPA with a graduate degree in applied mathematics and a licensed private investigator. He is “dual certified” in fraud investigation, possessing both the Certified Fraud Examiner designation from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners and the Certified in Financial Forensics designation from the American Institute of CPAs.
