Expert witness testimony remains a foundation of many aspects of legal
practice. The credibility of expert witnesses often comes under intense
scrutiny, and many icons have been defrocked over the years.
Dr. Souviron has become a veteran at
expert testimony. He has contributed testimony for both sides of the Bar in
literally hundreds of legal actions, ranging from dental malpractice,
implantology, dental product liability, bite mark evidence in law
enforcement cases, independent medical examinations, TMJ cases, disability
determinations, identity determinations from dental evidence, insurance
actions, dental traumatology and dental fraud.
A seasoned witness, Dr. Souviron is comfortable on the witness
stand, and has the experience, maturity and unparalleled credentials to be
able to ward off the inevitable attacks on his testimony from opposing
counsel. He has been accepted as a Forensic expert, dental TMJ expert and
general dentist expert in numerous jurisdictions including more than 20
states. His expertise is used in criminal as well as both State and Federal
In fact, this credibility comes from the tens of thousands of hours that
Dr. Souviron has spent "paying his dues". This includes his
co-founding the American Board of Forensic Odontology, chairing various
ethics committees, and dedication to the integrity of forensic science. His
credibility is reflected by the thousands of hours receiving and teaching
continuing education in forensic science, TMJ, and dental reconstruction.
He has most recently been featured on the CBS program Sixty
Minutes for his opinions and experience regarding the facts
and fictions surrounding the forensic use of bite mark evidence.
Richard R. Souviron, DDS, is not the "academic" witness who is
easily mocked on the witness stand. He lives and practices his brand of high
end diagnosis and curative dentistry every day.
He is intense about it.
