Millennium Dental Technologies Expands New York Sales Team, Demonstrates Commitment to Innovation at Greater New York Dental Meeting

New Laser Periodontal Consultant to Drive Growth, Support Demand for LANAP™ Procedure With PerioLase® Dental Laser

CERRITOS, CA and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 24, 2008) - Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. today appointed Eric P. Compton, who has trained and consulted with more than 600 dental practices in the United States, as a Laser Periodontal Consultant to drive the company's sales efforts in New York state and help meet continued demand for the PerioLase® Periodontal Package. The PerioLase Periodontal Package, which includes the PerioLase MVP-7™ dental laser bundled with the first and only dedicated laser periodontal treatment protocol, is specifically designed for use in the FDA-cleared Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure™ (LANAP™). Today's announcement kicks off Millennium's activities at the 84th Greater New York Dental Meeting where more than 55,000 healthcare professionals will gather November 28 through December 3 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York for one of the largest Dental Congresses in the world.

"First and foremost, I was treated with LANAP in 2004 and, as a patient, know first hand the minimally invasive nature and efficacy of the protocol," said Eric Compton. "I've also attended more than 40 of Millennium's hands-on training sessions and have never met a more dedicated group of practitioners and certified trainers for any protocol or device in the dental industry. LANAP dentists are supported in every aspect of training and implementation with the ultimate goal of delivering safe and effective clinical outcomes. In addition, in today's tough economic times, clinicians are looking for ways to differentiate themselves and add to their repertoire of procedures offered -- LANAP delivers a perfect opportunity for dentists to both deliver the best possible care and grow their businesses. I am excited to join this dedicated team and to serve New York's dental community."

Compton attended the United States Military Academy at West Point before pursuing diverse careers in the hospitality and private club industries. He entered the dental industry in 2001 and has developed unique strategies for the implementation of the "Perio Delivery Continuum," a concept he first introduced. The Continuum calls on dentists to "Diagnose, Educate and Motivate Patients" to accept humane and efficacious treatment and adopt home care alternatives as ways to grow their dental practices. To date, Compton has trained and consulted with more than 600 private practices in the U.S., as well as traveled extensively in Spain, Germany, UK, China, Russia, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America delivering the "Perio Delivery Continuum" message.

"We are thrilled to have Eric join our growing team of Laser Periodontal Consultants," said Millennium Dental Technologies President Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, a practicing dentist and co-developer of LANAP. "Eric has demonstrated true commitment to the dental community and the advancement of dental innovations; we look forward to having him support LANAP practitioners throughout New York. As the use of lasers in dentistry increases, it is imperative that clinicians do their homework and adopt and offer patients only laser procedures that have been scientifically researched and clinically proven. LANAP is FDA-cleared, backed by research and can only be performed by trained clinicians using the PerioLase dental laser. We look forward to working closely with Eric and our dedicated team to ensure that the dental community accepts no imitations."

The 84th Greater New York Dental Meeting will feature some of the most highly regarded educators in the field of dentistry and more than 500 exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies for the dental profession. Millennium Dental Technologies is exhibiting in booth #5009.
