What do we do

  • FraudGUARD – intensive review of practice systems, emphasizing embezzlement “hotspots”. Recommendations designed to make embezzlement more difficult to accomplish, and to increase the probability of detection.
  • Diagnostic Examination – to allow doctors with employee embezzlement concerns to determine whether those concerns are justified. Involves a detailed review of transactions, looking for specific patterns of embezzlement.
  • Forensic Investigation – used when embezzlement has already been discovered. May involve gathering evidence to assist with termination, recovery, and entry into the justice system.
  • Litigation support:
  1. Due diligence when purchasing a practice
  2. “Buyer’s remorse” and seller misrepresentation in purchase disputes
  3. Disputes between owners in group practices
  4. Fact finding, expert reports, and expert witness testimony
  5. Family law matters involving dental practices

About Us

  • Our well-qualified investigators have varied dental backgrounds, including former practicing dentists, CPAs, attorneys, consultants, software trainers and office managers.
  • We only work with dentists and their advisers.  Dentistry is all we do — we do not assist other types of businesses.
  • 50% of our investigators are Certified Fraud Examiners; 30% are licensed as private investigators.
  • Functional groups:
    • General Investigations Group
    • Orthodontic and Oral Surgery Group
    • Litigation Support Group (assists attorneys in legal matters involving dentists)
    • Special Investigations Group (handles some of our ugliest situations, like dentists embezzling from each other in group practices).
  • We have the investigative capability to perform stealthy, off-site investigation work.
