Oksana's Dentist: She Was Struck In the Mouth

7/19/2010 5:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The dentist who examined Oksana Grigorieva the day after the January 6 showdown with Mel Gibson now says she was indeed struck in the mouth.

A representative for Dr. Ross Shelden tells TMZ, "Based on Dr. Shelden's observations and his experience, Oksana sustained injuries from being struck twice, once in the side of the head and once in the mouth."

TMZ broke the story ... the dentist privately said last week there was no swelling or bruising on Oksana's mouth and believed the damage to her veneers was caused by a "chain reaction" caused by a blow to the left temple.  The doctor had said there was no evidence of a strike to the mouth.

But the rep now says the doctor will go on record saying there was indeed a blow to Oksana's mouth.

LOL @ Ankaret! Totally agree Sweetheart is Eastern Euro. It's hard to type while you're standing in the soup line dodging shells. Go disco disco!

This is what's known as "covering you azz".
At this point the story isn't worth reading until they all get to court and start testifying under oath.
It's a shame they get to test out stories online before that.

Let's see what happens in court tomorrow. I went from not respecting Harvey to having a great deal of respect for not showing any bias, however, deleting posts from commenters, is suspicious. Radar mole for sure. Harvey, you need to get on that.

Black eyes and bruised temple they say and promise(d) (depending on the day/weather) but all we see is one snapped veneer and jaggedly broken one, no bruises or black eyes. No injury whatsoever (lips, gums, lower teeth, eyes, etc.,).
Inconsistent.

The dentist is being paid off. And if he sticks to his latest story, he's in trouble with the law for not reporting it.

Radar has its big fat logo over Oskana's nose, which that honker looks like it was done before Dalton's money got her a new one. Are these photos old at Radar?
Too bad the "sources" at ROL and TMZ cannot be summoned to court and raise their right hands to tell the truth, only the truth.
Mel's got his problems no doubt, but did Oskana shake the baby and throw herself on the ground, causing injury to herself? Why hide bruises to her head and why not call the cops straight up? Unless she wanted to shake Gibson down for $$$, hence the baiting on the tapes (which sound doctored). We all know how to push our partner's buttons, but most people don't secretly tape someone and engage in that type of behavior without motives...especially if they are ..oh, so frightened.

What do they think we are, fools? I hope the judge can see past the smoke screen and convict them both for lying and wasting everyone's time. I say we all get together and sue Oxy-whore for wasting tax-payers money.....

There's no evidence this dentist is changing his mind on anything. There is evidence TMZ is saying he is without any proof at all.

bizsnatch, who is the fool here? Perhaps you should look more closely at who is trying to undermine the witness's credibility and why.

Just because someone at TMZ writes lots of different stories about a witness, doesn't mean that individual is being accurate or fair. Or doesn't have an agenda.

I could be wrong, but I'd like to see some hard proof from TMZ before I conclude this dentist is a flake. I don't think he is.

CRIMESIDER POLL

Mel Gibson was heard allegedly acknowledging he hit Oksana Grigorieva in a recording released by RadarOnline.
Who's at Fault for the Mel Gibson Audio Rants?

* Mel Gibson is 100% at fault. The language is disgusting, and if he committed a crime, I hope he goes to jail.
26%
* Break-ups are complicated things that bring out the worst in people. I'm not going to judge.
12%
* Oksana Grigorieva is clearly manipulating Gibson in the audio. She knows she's being recorded, he doesn't. Not fair.
62%

Oksana threw herself down on the ground and hit her own mouth causing dental injuries. The directional impact came from below her mouth not straight on her face and not from a taller male. Oksana lied in the past and she lied to her dentist. The dentist needs to keep a lower profile than to align himself with an abusive mother and disturbed extortionist female.

In general, it's illegal to tape someone without their knowledge but it's sometimes allowed in domestic violence situations," says L.A. criminal defense attorney Steve Sitkoff. "But the law in that regard isn't clear cut; there's lots of gray area. If the tapes are deemed illegal, they won't exist to a jury. The motive of the taping appears suspect; Oksana is extremely calm and appears to be provoking him. And if Mel was under the influence while making his threats, that would make it even harder to prove criminal intent.""

Ok, so she was struck in the mouth. Then she was struck in the head. Now she was struck in the mouth and the head. Either the sources are sucking, he keeps changing his mind or no one knows wtf is going on
