A Rancho Palos Verdes dentist will face insurance fraud charges, after being arrested last week. According to California Department of Insurance investigators, the dentist filed fraudulent insurance billings totaling more than $31,000.
The department began its investigation after an insurance company complained that it received fraudulent bills for dental work. The investigators discovered that the dentist created fraudulent bills for services he never performed over a seven-year period. According to investigators, the doctor presented the phony bills to insurers between 2007 and 2014.
The dentist received a bail of $25,000. The Dental Board of California will review the case to determine whether to apply additional professional sanctions.
