Celebrity dentist’s head shave gets him in the record books
A celebrity cosmetic dentist has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records for most ‘money raised for a charity through head shaving by an individual’.
Dr Bill Dorfman, star dentist on TV’s Extreme Makeover is well known for transforming the smiles of celebrities.
Among them, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, the cast of Desperate Housewives, Usher, Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.
He is also co-founder of the LEAP Foundation – a non-profit organisation that helps high school and college students gain valuable life skills through a summer mentorship programme.
In an effort to raise awareness and aide the students in the programme, Dr Dorfman announced that he would shave his head if donors could raise $100,000 or more.
Total funds raised equalled $121,000 when he had his head shaved in front of a live audience on US TV talk show, The Doctors.
Dr Dorfman is a bestselling author for his book, Billion Dollar Smile.
