David Harris

An accidental occurrence led to David’s founding of Prosperident in 1989.

Prior to founding the world’s oldest and largest firm investigating financial crimes committed against dentists and dental specialists, David spent several years working for a federally-chartered bank where he managed commercial loan portfolios and conducted internal investigations.  Before that, David’s Army service included funding for both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Under David’s leadership, Prosperident has expanded over the past three decades to become a team of more than 20 highly specialized forensic accountants, fraud investigators, IT specialists, and support staff.  Prosperident is consulted on hundreds of embezzlement matters annually. David’s vast investigative experience, coupled with his own youth-filled misadventures, has given him a unique insight into the mindset and actions of embezzlers. He is passionate about sharing this ever-growing wealth of knowledge with dentists and dental specialists.

David is an accomplished author and much sought after speaker on the topic of dental embezzlement.  His book, Dental Embezzlement: The Art of Theft and the Science of Control, is available on Amazon.

David believes that the best educational experiences are enhanced by humor. David’s entertaining and insightful presentation style has made him a favorite presenter at regional, national and international dental conferences.

David’s professional qualifications include Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified in Financial Forensics, Chartered Professional Accountant, Certified Management Accountant, Licensed Private Investigator and he is listed as an Expert Witness with Thompson Reuters.
