Prosperident’s Mission
“We eliminate uncertainty for dentists with embezzlement concerns and maximize financial and emotional recovery for victims.”
What is “Litigation Support”?
Prosperident’s Senior Examiner Annie Joseph was on her way to a career as an attorney when she got bitten by the investigation bug. Annie now heads our Litigation Support department, with the role of gathering information used in litigation matters.
Examples include working for buyers of practices who believe that facts were misrepresented, assisting with disputes between dentists in group practices and dealing with “covenant breaches.”
Annie’s law degree and Master of Science in Fraud and Forensics make her ideal for this work.

Are You Getting Embezzled? Dr. Howard Farran interviews Prosperident CEO David Harris

EXTENDED — Take our assessment questionnaire for FREE!
Our recent offer to take our Embezzlement Risk Self Assessment Questionnaire (which normally sells for $79) for FREE ended on September 15. However, response was so good that the boss agreed to extend the grace period until the end of October.
Completion takes ten minutes or less and the Questionnaire is the most reliable indicator of whether a dentist faces an embezzlement issue.
You can take the Questionnaire by clicking here. We will quickly email you back with your score, what it means, and our recommendations for action.
A Note From Our CEO:
Big Announcement!
In previous newsletters, I have dropped a couple of hints about this, but now it’s time to fill you in on an exciting development.
For many years we have seen the need for some technological assistance to help dentists monitor their practices for embezzlement. Without this help, monitoring is a daunting task and is frequently done poorly or not at all.
In the last few years, there have been a couple of entrants into the monitoring market, but the software that they work with is limited, and the monitoring software is still maturing. And while we have been pleased to support these options, we have continued to pine for the next generation of monitoring software.
We were thrilled to be approached over a year ago by a company with a strong background in software development. This company shared our vision to develop advanced and innovative practice monitoring software. Our team of embezzlement experts quickly meshed with their cadre of software developers, and Shieldr was conceived. It developed into a product that can not only provide sophisticated monitoring for embezzlement, but also identify other types of revenue “leakage,”and can measurably reduce a doctor’s time in managing his or her office. This time saving alone more than justifies Shieldr’s modest monthly cost.
Shieldr is currently being beta tested in a small number of offices and is expected to be generally available within the next month. You learn more about the product by going to Shieldr’s web site at
Shieldr will also be exhibiting at major dental shows over the next several months, and if you are going to the ADA, Greater NY, Yankee Dental or Chicago Midwinter conferences, please be sure to stop by the Shieldr booth. Who knows — you might even see me there.
