Roy Shelburne, DDS is a speaker, consultant, and former prisoner convicted of health care fraud in 2008 and released in 2010. He lectures on how to form a defensive systematic approach to record keeping to prevent what happened to him from happening to others. He maintains a private practice in Bristol, VA.

The instructor went to prison on August 20, 2008 and was released on May 14, 2010 and learned a series of lessons the hard way. There are ways to protect and defend a dental practice and to prevent what happened to him from happening to you. Know that if it's not in your clinical record, you didn't see it, you didn't say it, you didn't do it, it didn't need to be done, and it doesn't exist....from the legal perspective. To be prepared for any challenge the whole dental team must be careful, concise, complete, and diligent, not just the doctor because, the whole team is potentially at risk. Learning and implementing this no non-sense team approach to record keeping could mean the difference between success and failure in the event of an action or challenge to your practice and will result in maximum legitimate reimbursement.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Understand that what you don’t know can hurt you and that ignorance is no excuse
  • Learn to assimilate and maintain records that can both protect and defend
  • Recognize the necessity of due diligence and how to conduct record reviews and internal audits to ensure accuracy and excellence
  • Become equipped to protect and defend the practice from record compliance challenges
