'Extreme Makeover' Dentist

I Secretly Collect the Teeth

of My Celebrity Patients

Dr. Bill Dorfman -- a world famous dentist who treats some of the biggest stars on Earth -- tells TMZ he keeps a "secret stash" of the teeth he's plucked from the mouths of his famous patients ... in the hopes of eventually selling them on eBay.

Dorfman -- who recently treated Lindsay Lohan and whose website features Jessica Simpson, Usher, Ozzy Osbourne, Anne Hathaway and Eva Longoria -- was outside Rock & Brews in El Segundo yesterday when he revealed his secret.

"I actually save famous people's teeth when I pull them ... but I can't tell you [their identities] 'cause it's like patient confidentiality."

He continues, "There have been a few really famous people and I thought one day maybe I could sell this on eBay."

Dorfman insists he always offers the teeth to his patients first ... but they often decline, "So I put it in the back and i just hold on to it."

We've spoken with several dentists who tell us it's not illegal to keep the teeth -- but most dentists either throw them away or give them to dental schools for research purposes.

One dentist told us, "What Dorfman is doing is just sick."

I would imagine maybe other dentist do the same thing. How ever it surprises me to hear one own up to it.

And what does he do when they're unconscious on the gas? A little amateur erotic photography perhaps?

there's nothing unethical about it if the celebrity in question doesn't want they're tooth/teeth back. it becomes unethical when someone says no you can't do that and you then do it anyway.

Since his dentistry SUCKS (he makes everyone look like a horse), he's going to need something to fall back on when he's done making everyone of his patients look like Mr. Ed, so no surprise that this weirdo collects teeth (and God knows what else).

Ethically this is a gray area. Since he claims he offers the teeth to the clients and they decline, it is okay to keep them. But it is NOT okay to sell them without their express written consent! These are body parts and contain DNA. Nefarious uses for that DNA DO exist, and the dentist is naive to think that selling celebrities' teeth could or would not result in major drama down the road. He should get WRITTEN consent from patients! CYA, doc! (And now that TMZ has 'outed' him, you can bet stars will be more careful in the future). I bet it costs him business...

The guy is a closeted homo. Even though he's married two pretty hot women, I know several guys who have had sex with him. Small penis apparently.
