The Attorney General's Office has charged an Elizabeth Township dentist with two counts of insurance fraud and two counts of theft by deception for practicing dentistry while his license was suspended.

Thomas Wasilko, 55, was arraigned before White Oak District Judge Thomas Miller on Thursday and released on his own recognizance. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 9.

Wasilko couldn't be reached for comment. His license was suspended by the Department of State in November 2010 for at least six months, but he saw patients and submitted more than $10,000 worth of claims to United Concordia Insurance from Dec. 11, 2010, through at least April 5, prosecutors say.
