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.

You ask (no.14) if she called him, ready to record just to set him up. Well, how much of it have you heard? Over and over she attempts to hang up the phone because of his nastiness and over and over he threatens that if she hangs up he will come to where she is. Did you ever stop to think that this may be the usual way he treats her and recording his abuse would require no 'set up'. When she talked about him hitting her while she was holding their baby, (twice in the face) he said 'you deserved it'. He didn't deny what he did. He then went on to threaten her with 'a rose garden, for permanent'. If this was something she'd heard from him before, who can blame her for recording and making it public? Now, he can't make good on that threat at least. It's the kind of thing he might easily have gotten away with if she hadn't done what she did to protect herself. Even though the relationship might have started with him wanting a sexy young woman on his arm and her wanting a rich and famous guy, the physical abuse and death threats are no way justifiable.

Hmmm! Why would she tell her dentist about her "wanting to get Married" Sounds like she makes her moves whenever she can. She was paid to set up Mel. Thats her career. Does TMZ know the "real" story.

#96 Even the dentist has said OSKANSA was NOT punched in the mouth, there was no visible markings other than her own teeth biting down!! 1 veneer came off and a second one chipped!! The dentist's latest theory/story is that she was beaten on the temple but she wouldn't let him photograph it?!! His own staff deny it! The dentist says the photo on the internet was faked and her people say no it's her - so um, just who are you going to believe now hm?!

INAPPROPRIATE for healthcare workers to TAKE HOME PATIENTS
who are sick, injured or hurt from a clinical setting (hospital, clinic, etc)

Referrals are made AND the Doctor just like any other state licensed healthcare professional is a MANDATED REPORTER.

Doc may have have gotten too close to his patient and did not do the right thing for his patient.

Pray for Mel Gibson's family and Little Lucia, they are totally innocent. Go see www.support-mel.com for some good prayers, and my testimony of how the Passion of the Christ movie changed my life.

for your information    

BY LAW

If a woman (or a man) present to a health care professional as a victim of domestic violence, and asks the health care professional to not report it, the health care professional cannot due to confidentiality rights.

Domestic violence is only required to be reported in situations of child abuse or elder abuse.

BY LAW

Oksana claimed she & HER BABY WERE IN DANGER

The Intent of California Law

To protect the child and any other children in the home.
To provide help and resources for the parent or caretaker.
To be a catalyst for change in the home environment and prevent the risk of further abuse.

Who Can Make a Report?

Any citizen can make a report of suspected or known child abuse to a child protective services agency.

HOWEVER, Mandated Reporters are required by law to make a report.

The one part I find confusing on one of the tapes is the one that has Mel saying " my wife knows " ...this sounds to me like she had taped Mel prior to the seperation of Mel and his wife.

I read she called Robyn Gibson and broke the news about the
affair. She's quite the initiator. Now it's all blowing up
in her ugly out of proportioned miserable face.

...and as everyone can see, Robyn used her brains and divorced
the egomaniac for good. Bet Mel never wanted that to happen.
You go Robin...you came out the winner, because you were always
a lady.

Wow, at least she had her dentist to run to. I don't feel that those people ever deserve to be protected if they are that violent. Plus, he could just buy his way out of it, I don't really see what protecting him would solve.
