Roy S Shelburne, DDS is a 1981 Honor Graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University's School of Dentistry. After graduation, Roy opened his practice in his grandfather's old hardware store. He has served as president of the Southwest Virginia Dental Society and has volunteered at Virginia's various MOM projects across the state. Roy has also served as a short-term missionary to Honduras with Baptist Medical Missions International.  


Some dentists may fear litigation, but few worry about going to prison. On October 24, 2003, the FBI broke down the back door of Roy’s office and confiscated all of his business and dental records. Over the course of the next 3 years, every aspect of his life was subjected to the closest scrutiny. He was indicted in October of 2006. In March of 2008, Roy was found guilty of healthcare fraud, racketeering, and money laundering, and spent 19 months incarcerated at the Federal Prison Camp in Manchester, KY before his release in 2010.


During the investigation and trial, it became apparent that his records, billing, and coding systems were faulty, and that ignorance is no excuse. While incarcerated, Roy had ample time to reflect on his life and found that true release comes when we draw from our strength, character, vision, wisdom, and experience. A speaker, consultant, and writer, Roy now specializes in records keeping and business systems that protect and defend other doctors from facing the same troubles.
