Oksana's Dentist Offered Her Shelter from Mel

7/14/2010 6:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... the dentist who treated Oksana Grigorieva the day after the explosive January 6 blowup with Mel Gibson wrote a sworn declaration in which he says Oksana not only told him Mel had hit her ... but he was so concerned for her safety he offered to let her stay at his home.

TMZ broke the story ... Dr. Ross Shelden will be a critical witness if criminal charges are filed against Gibson.  Oksana's lawyers asked Dr. Shelden last month to write a declaration detailing information he had about the incident and aftermath. 

TMZ has learned what's in Dr. Shelden's declaration.  Dr. Shelden says he has known Oksana for 12 years.  According to the declaration, Oksana came in the day after the incident and told him Mel had hit her, but she was not more specific.  The doctor says in his declaration he saw evidence of "blunt force trauma" as well as physical damage.

Something significant -- in the declaration, Dr. Shelden says Oksana's teeth were not damaged ... just her veneers.  He says one veneer was knocked completely out and the other was broken in half.

The doctor wanted to take pictures of Oksana's mouth, but not to create a record for authorities -- he wanted them for his lab for the purpose of repairing the damage.

The doctor says Oksana did not want the pictures taken, and had expressly said she wanted to protect Mel.  But Dr. Shelden persisted and got the photos, although he says Oksana was so reluctant she would not look into the camera.

As we previously reported, Oksana insisted that Dr. Shelden keep the information confidential, which is why he did not contact the police.

Sources say Dr. Shelden says before Oksana even met Mel ... she had talked about how much she wanted to get married and have a baby.

Boy meets girl, girl gets pregnant,girl gives mel all the bj he wants so she can continue to get what she wants. baby is born , ching ching money in the bank next 18 years. bond boy is only good for another 6 years. Mel cheats while russian is pregnant, russian cheats after she has mel's baby. Mel is po'd because he probably is chauvinistic and has been paying for russian bond boy and who know's what else. russian promises a bj before jacuzzi but falls asleep snoring. Mel is angry about not getting taken care of - after all he is taking care of all her needs. Somewhere in there in mels head a voice is knocking on his skull and telling him You been had and will be had for the next 18 or so years. But she won't leave his house even after he knocked her teeth veeners off. And then he threatens her with a gun, but still she stays in Mels house living off mel each and every day.
Neither one is normal.
Normal would be to move out of mels house take baby far away until mel gets stabilized and quit trying to extort mel for millions of dollars just because you can.
Mel please check in somewhere you know you need to. JUST DO IT

Glad people are seeing the light....

12 years? eh like i said hmm cheating on Tim maybe?.... lol

The tapes just sound fake as hell and I play with audio from mixing to home theater installs and on my system I can hear this crap does not sound right. I could get a scope out and watch it but there is no point since they can't be used because even if they are legit they still have to prove its him and with out Gov voice printing not going to happen because they were done illegally in the first place under two party rules..

the teeth story and DR has so much BS in it that Al Gore is going to declare those two a disaster and want them shipped off to some hazmat dump..

Doesn't sound as if she's telling the whole truth. Doesn't want to leave him and doesn't want her picture taken????Yeah real battered. Leaves her innocent baby in danger with Mel even though she secretly claims he hurt her? Hmmm I've been there and done that myself but have never left my child or allow our children around him. Yes Mel is a drunk and verbally abusive but wanting money to STILL KEEP IT HUSH HUSH IS BS. Seems she's playing the battered woman even though money would have replaced it all? Get a life because some real battered women don't buy it.

BULLDINKY

She was so damaged and afraid for her life, she was his side on the red carpet at the Golden Globes 89 days later. Soon love. THEN, she traveled all over Europe and Asia with him. Then wrote and sang him a love song on TV.

The poor frightened Lil' lamb.

Notice, she NEVER told ex James Bond, Timothy Dalton, about her fears, even though his son lives in the house with her.

I think Mel gibson acted this way because he is so desperate in love. I know you might don't think this way because os his violence towards her. He left his wife for her and the way I see he was in love and she wasn't. He did everything to keep her and she wanted out. He is in a lot of pain.

How in the world can someone whack a person in the mouth and just manage to take the veneers off? I have veneers because I hit the steering wheel,after hitting a pole,busting one front tooth off and pushing three other back to kingdom come. It was the best they could do to restore "MY SMILE" After 1 very experimental implant, 4 veneers and 16 years,and 5 very loose teeth I'm looking at dentures!

Oksana "threw herself down on the ground" and could have solely been responsible for the damage to her veneers.She may have told the Mel did this to me version of the story to the dentist to solicit sympathy and get her teeth repaired. There is no reason to trust this woman after she lied and shook her infant daughter. Her theatrics will catch up with her and she may
need to leave the country quickly.

I'll say this one more time. The billionaire racists isn't going to jail. Money talks and Bull*hit walks people. In the potential civil suit,he'll toss a few million at the woman to go away.
Racists will make sure he keeps making money, so everyone should just get over it.

So WHY would the dentist offer her a place to stay. Is he married? Bet he isn't! Did she wrap herself around him too? This will show what kind of person she is to sexually manipulate her dentist, I bet! It will come out n court.

What a bunch of BS this dds is saying. What kind of relationship does she have with this guys anyway? Why would a professional dentist ask a millionaire to "stay over" because let's face it, she wouldn't have been out on her a## if she would've decided to leave Mel back then. I'm sure she would have been able to afford a nice suite at the Hilton to escape her troubles!. She's not some pennyless stay at home mom that would have needed this kind of help to escape an abusive husband. He's either banging her or he'll be getting a nice tip when this case is settled. I don't believe a word of it.
