Remedent to Present FirstFit, a Revolutionary Solution for Dental Bridges & Crowns, at the Den-Mat Education Destination Seminar in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 6-8, 2009

DEURLE, BELGIUM and LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) - Remedent, Inc. (OTCBB: REMI) an international company specializing in the research, development, and manufacturing of oral care and cosmetic dentistry products, has been invited to present FirstFit™, a patent-pending system for the creation and placement of dental bridges and crowns, at Den-Mat Holding LLC's Education Destination Seminar being held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 6-8, 2009.

The seminar is part of a conference for Minimally Invasive and Digital Dentistry being hosted by the American Society for Clinical Research and the Academy of General Dentistry. More than 500 dentists from across the country and around the world are expected to attend the conference. Den-Mat is the world's largest producer of dental veneers and the leading sponsor of the conference.

The FirstFit presentation will be conducted by Remedent's CEO, Guy De Vreese, on Saturday, November 7, with the Belgian inventor of FirstFit, Dr. Evelyne Jacquemyns, presenting live via Web cast from one of Remedent's international GlamSmile locations in Dubai, UAE. The event represents the first official presentation of the new bridge and crown technology to dentists in the United States since FirstFit's international introduction in June of this year.

The FirstFit system requires no temporary placements, creates less mouth trauma and takes fewer office visits to complete. With economic benefits for both patients and dentists, the new technology addresses an expanding U.S. market for dental crowns and bridges, and has the potential to change the way modern dentistry is practiced.

"This presentation of FirstFit builds upon the success of our dental veneer technology which Den-Mat markets as LUMITRAY®," said Guy De Vreese, CEO of Remedent. "We expect the rollout of FirstFit, with Den-Mat's assistance, will significantly expand our presence in the North American professional dental market. We greatly value Den-Mat's substantial commitment of resources to FirstFit as we introduce the many revolutionary features and benefits the new technology offers both dentists and the consumer."

The three day event will also feature demonstrations of the LUMITRAY veneer placement system that creates attractive, confident, life-changing smiles without full-prep. LUMITRAY is also the only veneer placement system that makes possible the placing of a full arch in one motion.
