A Beverly Hills dentist accused of insurance fraud was arrested Friday in connection with a criminal complaint charging him with 101 felony counts, the District Attorney's Office said.

Tom K. Kalili, 57, is scheduled to be arraigned early next week on charges including insurance fraud, grand theft of personal property and filing a false tax return.

Kalili owns and operates Beverly Hills Medical Suites, a dental office located at 416 N. Bedford Drive, according to the District Attorney's Office.

KTLA reported that Kalili and his partners have celebrity clients who include Jim Carrey, Kathy Ireland, Adam Sandler, Keanu Reeves and Vin Diesel.

Kalili's office manager and biller, Claudia Ventura, 38, is charged with 10 felony counts, including insurance fraud and accessory after the fact. She is set to be arraigned next week along with Kalili.

The charges stem from a multi-year investigation by the California Department of Insurance, the California Dental Board and the California Franchise Board.

Prosecutors were asking that Kalili's bail be set at $500,000 and that Ventura's bail be set at $25,000.

If convicted as charged, Kalili could face more than 50 years in state prison and Ventura could face more than seven years behind bars, according to the District Attorney's Office.
