A dentist in Livingston County has pleaded not guilty to grand larceny charges.

Our ABC station in Rochester reports 57-year-old Michael Oros billed patients nearly $12,000 for high end crowns.  Prosecutors say he gave them low end crowns and pocketed the difference instead.

Investigators say Oros did this for almost four years.

Oros worked at Avon Family Dentistry in Avon.  His status with the office is unclear.  He is due back in court in May.
