Dentist's Story In Direct Conflict with Oksana

7/16/2010 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The dentist who treated Oksana Grigorieva does not believe she was struck in the mouth as she claims ... and his evaluation raises serious questions about her injuries ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with Dr. Ross Shelden's medical charts, photos and examination notes tell TMZ ... Dr. Shelden saw no evidence Oksana was struck in the mouth.  TMZ broke the story ... Oksana told Sheriff's deputies Mel Gibson struck her in the mouth twice, knocking one tooth out and chipping another.

Although Dr. Shelden sees no evidence of a strike to the mouth, he does have a different scenario.  We've learned Dr. Shelden believes Oksana was struck in the left temple, which caused her to bite down so hard, one veneer was completely knocked out and another was damaged.  The charts reflect that Oksana's teeth were fully intact.

Dr. Shelden observed a bruise on Oksana's left temple, however, we know the photos he took in his office show no such bruising.  The doctor's explanation -- Oksana was reluctant to have her picture taken and covered up the bruising with her hair and makeup -- plus she was looking off to the side.  As we previously reported, Oksana told the doctor Mel had hit her.

As for the mouth area, Dr. Shelden's charts reflect two bite marks on the inside of the lower lip.  The doctor says there was no swelling or bruising consistent with a punch to the mouth but believes instead the bite marks are consistent with "a chain reaction" after allegedly being hit in the temple.

There is nothing in the records indicating whether the doctor believes Oksana's wounds may have been self-inflicted. 

Sources connected with Mel Gibson tell TMZ the actor did not strike Oksana.

Enough of the sexist and racist comments about Oksana. It's the lowest of the low.

What's clear is the dentist believes she was physically assaulted. That she wasn't actually hit in the mouth doesn't mean anything. He believes she was hit, and by Mel.

The lies continue to build up this is getting out of hand. Mr dentist lover if you believed she was hit why didn't you call the police as by law you are required to do? Lies lies lies.

I don't think she ever said she was hit in the mouth, but that Mel hit her in the face knocking out two teeth and giving her a concussion.

I see Mel Gibson's playing everyone for fools and suckers, first he humiliates his wife and makes her looks like a greedy coward by having her testify for him and now, he's got TMZ putting out questionable stories about an abused woman......Mel would you hurry up and drop dead already? They're waiting for you in hell you racist, little misogynist little pig. Uhhhggg......

So you can knock out a veneer and chip one while biting your lip? Is this guy for real?
