David Harris may have the coolest job in dentistry – he gets to chase, and catch, those who steal from dentists. A rule-breaker in his youth, David changed his direction and has spent much of his adult life in the world of investigation and enforcement, where he uses his unrivaled ability to understand the criminal thought process to help educate and protect dentists. David is the Chief Executive Officer of Prosperident, the world’s largest firm investigating financial crimes committed against dentists. AIM Dental Marketing president and Founder of the Practice Perfection web-based education series Daniel A. ‘Danny’ Bobrow had the pleasure of hosting Harris for an informative and entertaining ninety-minute session. David, a licensed private investigator, Forensic Certified Public Accountant, and Certified Fraud Examiner, regaled the audience with real-world stories from his own case files that illustrated just how prevalent embezzlement is and the cost associated with it. Gladly, he shared several simple steps to prevent the dental practice from falling victim to dental embezzlement. Harris is the author of the book Dental Embezzlement: The Art of Theft and the Science of Control and over 30 articles in dental publications. In addition to being a prolific author, David is a frequent presenter at regional, national, and international dental conferences, and his vast wealth of experience, coupled with his keen sense of humor, make David both an engaging and entertaining speaker.
