  • No patients at the business, Naples Valley Dental, were improperly billed or overcharged as a result of the alleged actions of Dr. Ihab Soliman, state police said Friday.
    Soliman, 52, faces a felony charge after he allegedly falsified business records at a Naples practice for the purpose of financial gain.
    State Police in Canandaigua charged Soliman, of Coach Side Lane, Pittsford, with first degree falsifying business records, a felony charge. This follows an investigation and complaint made by his employer at the practice of Naples Valley Dental located on Main Street in the Village of Naples.
    The investigation revealed that Soliman allegedly made repeated entries into the computer system of the dental practice and made changes to the billing system so that he would be compensated more in his weekly paycheck, police said. Once Soliman was paid for the fictitious entries, he then allegedly re-entered the system and changed the billing system back in an attempt to cover his crimes.
    The investigation is ongoing and further charges are pending. Soliman was arraigned in the Town of Victor Court and ordered to the Ontario County Jail in lieu of $7,500 cash bail or $15,000 bond.
