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.

The dentist's should have saved his opinion for the courts. His credibility is now questionable.
This is getting so ugly from Oksana's camp. SAVE IT FOR THE COURTS OXY PEOPLE !!!

Ankaret- you know that any medical professional is required to report suspected cases of abuse. Since Oksana supposedly saw him the day after the incident, back in January, he had ample time to file his reports.

This Hollywood rant is not far off from Mel, yet his career is still in tact.

Umm the dentist never changed his opinion about what happened to her someone who was paid to talk said that the doctor did look ---> "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." SOURCES not THE DOCTOR. This story that TMZ wrote about him changing his story is BS TMZ is taking someones word who says they saw the her dental chart. LOL no evidence to back up the claim on TMZ's part.


BTW SWEETHEART NO LEGITIMATE NEWS OUTLET HAS SAID THAT IT IS NOT MEL GIBSON ON THE TAPES NOT ONE ALL THEY SAY IS THEY CONTACTED HIS REP FOR VERIFICATION AND THEY HAD NO COMMENT. KNOW WHY? ALL THE PEOPLE WITH BRAINS IN THEIR HEADS AND PERFECTLY FUNCTIONING HEARING KNOW THAT IT'S MEL GIBSON ON THOSE TAPES. STOP IT ALREADY IT IS HIM AND HE IS OUT OF HIS MIND. AND COME ON TMZ PLS STOP POSTING BS STORIES ABOUT THIS DOCTOR HE NEVER CHANGED HIS OPINION WHAT'S WRONG MAD CAUSE YOU DIDN'T BREAK THE STORY FIRST? ATLEAST WHEN YOU HAVE EVIDENCE TO BACK UP YOUR CLAIMS I'M BEHIND YOU 100 PERCENT. AND PS: GOOD ON YOU TMZ FOR NOT MAKING SOME DISTURBING GAME TO PLAY ON YOUR WEBSITE ABOUT THIS CRAZY MEL SAGA.

The dentist's story has always been consistent. TMZ's reporting has not.

"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."

This is the declaration to Oksana's attorneys.

This dentist is not going to risk losing his license by not telling the truth, especially under oath. Mel was in a drunken rage and like many alcoholics does not remember his actions.

So basically this dude is full of ****ing **** and cant decide what he ****ing saw or didnt see. Sounds like this chick is blowing him and now he is on her side. I think his testimony should be inadmissible all together!
