DR. NORMAN "SKIP" SPERBER
COMMISSIONER
Norman (Skip) Sperber, DDS has been a practicing dentist in San Diego, California since leaving the US Navy in 1956 where he served as a dental officer.

Dr. Sperber is the chief forensic dentist for San Diego and Imperial counties and is likely the most well-known and respected Forensic Dentist in the country.

Dr. Sperber also serves as the chief forensic dentist for the California Department of Justice and played a major role in the development of California's unique dental identification system (Missing/Unidentified Person Unit - MUPS - Assembly Bill 81) which links John and Jane Does with missing persons.

Dr. Sperber has served law enforcement agencies in San Diego and Imperial counties, as well as other California counties, for over 50 years.




During his long, distinguished career, Dr. Sperber has testified to forensic evidence in more than 215 trials and has examined evidence in the Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer cases. He also spent time at ground zero, helping identify the victims of the 911 terrorist attacks where his expert assistance helped identify 1500 of the 3000 plus victims.
