Guest Speaker

 David Harris, CEO/Author/Speaker


David’s mission to eradicate embezzlement in dental practices began inauspiciously. After some youthful misadventures that almost landed him in jail, David’s investigative abilities first shone through in military and financial environments.


David’s career as dentistry’s premier crimefighter started when a dentist friend asked for David’s help with a suspected embezzlement. David quickly discovered his passions; catching embezzlers, bringing them to justice, and helping dentists protect themselves from theft in their practices.


In solving that first case, and thousands more that followed, David cemented his reputation as the leading authority in his field and one of the most respected voices in dentistry. Prosperident, the company that he built, is the go-to resource for dentists wishing to protect themselves against embezzlement.


David is a sought-after presenter for both large events and small meetings, giving over fifty
presentations annually. David‘s professional credentials include being accredited as a Forensic CPA, Certified Fraud Examiner, and licensed Private Investigator. He is a popular subject matter expert for dental podcasts and often quoted in dental publications.


David is the author of the book, Dental Embezzlement: The Art of Theft and the Science of Control, and his articles on embezzlement and financial controls have appeared in every major dental periodical.



Presenter declares that he has a financial interest or affiliation with a corporate organization or other institution offering financial support, grant monies, commercial product(s) and/ or services: Mr. Harris is a stock shareholder of Prosperident.
