March 16, 2017 -- A Connecticut woman has pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud related to her use of the identity of a retired dentist to submit fraudulent bills to insurance companies, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Connecticut.

Between 2005 and 2016, Elene Ilizarov, 44, billed insurance companies for services allegedly done by a retired dentist through Advanced Dentistry, a dental practice in Stamford, CT. Private insurance companies paid the practice almost $600,000 between 2011 and 2015 for services allegedly provided by the retired dentist.

Ilizarov renewed the retired dentist's dental license and controlled substance registrations in 2015 and 2016 using her personal credit card. She also applied for and received liability insurance in his name for several years.

A sentencing date has not yet been scheduled for the wire fraud charge, which carries a maximum prison term of 20 years.
