BIOLASE Names David M. Mulder Chief Financial Officer

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - April 30, 2008) - BIOLASE Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLTI), the world's leading dental laser company, announced today that it has named veteran financial executive David M. Mulder as Chief Financial Officer of the Company, effective immediately, replacing Interim Chief Financial Officer Frederick M. Capallo, who will continue to serve as Corporate Controller. Mulder will report directly to Chief Executive Officer Jake St. Philip.

For the last two years, he served as the Chief Financial Officer and the Chief Operating Officer of a private equity turn-around company. From 2002 through 2005, Mulder served as the Principal Financial and Accounting Officer of Salton, Inc., which at the time was a New York Stock Exchange listed company with fiscal 2005 global revenues of $1.1 billion.

St. Philip said, "David has the breadth of background and expertise that will make him a key part of the BIOLASE executive team. His corporate and international financial background and his experience working for companies with a global reach will be critical as we grow in the US and abroad and as we continue to penetrate new global markets. We look forward to welcoming David to the senior management team and to the positive contributions he will bring to the role."

Mulder also spent six years with Fruit of the Loom in progressive financial and operational roles, culminating as the head of the European business in 2000. Mulder started his career in accounting and consulting with Arthur Anderson, and has an MBA from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business.

St. Philip continued, "I would also like to thank Fred Capallo, personally and on behalf of the Board, for his willingness and aptitude during his time as interim CFO. Fred kept the financial and accounting aspects of the business in solid form while we were seeking the best candidate for the permanent role."
