SALISBURY, Md. – Criminal charges have been issued against Stewart Perim, DDC, for several counts of insurance fraud.

We’re told the charges stem from a long-term investigation conducted by the Maryland State Police, Maryland Board of Dental Examiners, and the Office of the State’s Attorney for Wicomico County, with technical assistance from the Office of the Attorney General of Maryland and the National Insurance Crime Bureau.

Perim has been served with the charges, along with a summons commanding him to appear in court.

Dick of the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101 or email garrett.dick@maryland.gov.
