PerioLase® MVP-7™ Dental Laser From Millennium Dental Technologies Proudly Made in USA

Innovative, Industry-Leading Dental Laser Used to Treat Gum Disease Meets Federal Trade Commission Guidelines for "Made in USA" Designation

CERRITOS, CA--(Marketwire - October 9, 2008) - Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. today announced that the company's PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser, the first and only laser designed specifically for use in the company's FDA-cleared and patented gum disease treatment protocol, called Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure® (or Laser-ANAP® and LANAP™), is proudly "Made in USA." As outlined by the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC's) guidelines, the Made in USA designation indicates that all or virtually all of the significant components and processing that go into the PerioLase dental laser originate in the United States.

The PerioLase MVP-7 is a 6 Watt FR (Free Running) variable pulsed Neodymium:Yttrium-Aluminum-Garnet (Nd:YAG) dental laser that offers 7 pulse durations (the most available on the market). Recently named "Best Product 2008" by Dental Product Shopper magazine, the PerioLase has unique and exclusive features necessary to perform Laser Periodontal Therapy™ (LPT™), also known as LANAP, as well as a wide range of soft and hard tissue laser procedures. The PerioLase is also the first laser in dentistry to incorporate digital technology for enhanced performance and reliability. LPT replaces conventional scalpel and suture surgery for the treatment of moderate to severe gum disease, a condition that, according to the U.S. Surgeon General, affects 85 percent of American adults aged 18 and older.

"In a struggling economy and in hard and uncertain economic times, other laser companies are selling laser devices to American dentists that in whole or in substantial part are outsourced and manufactured in foreign countries and then imported to the U.S.," said Millennium Dental Technologies President Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, a practicing dentist and co-developer of LANAP. "Millennium is proud to say that our dental lasers are Made in the USA and continue to contribute to and support the U.S. economy and the American worker. As the only dental laser and specifically defined protocol for the dedicated treatment of gum disease, we firmly stand by our commitment to delivering the highest quality Made in the USA products, training and support for all Millennium customers and look forward to continuing to drive innovation in laser dentistry right here in America."

Millennium Dental Technologies’ quality assurance system has been certified to meet the requirements of ISO 13485:2003, providing a framework for global regulatory compliance of its products.
