Dental Company CFO Charged with Embezzling $300,000

Police say a man who worked as the CFO of a New York dental practice embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from his employer.

The chief financial officer of a New York dental office was arrested Monday for allegedly embezzling more than $300,000.

The arrest of Kevin J. Conroy (pictured, right) came at the end of a three-month investigation into his work as CFO at High Peaks Dental Professional Partnership and High Peaks Realty in Plattsburgh, NY.

Nikki Burdo, office manager for High Peaks Dental, told the Press Republican, “Some inconsistencies were noted that sprung this investigation into action.”

Police said in a news release, “While working in that capacity between March of 2012 and December of 2015, he embezzled in excess of $300,000 from the companies.”

The firm’s co-owners William P. Caldon, DMD, and Michael O’Connor, DDS, fired Conroy on Dec. 23, 2015.

State police charged Conroy, 32, with two counts of second-degree grand larceny, two counts of falsifying business records, three counts of third-degree forgery, and one count of third-degree grand larceny.

He was arraigned in the Plattsburgh Town Court and released after posting a $50,000 bond.

Conroy will reappear in court on Monday, June 20.
