Union Dental - Drinkable Air Update the Progress of The Green Ozone Generator for Use in Dental Offices

CORAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2012) - Union Dental Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UDHI) (, a Company that operates and manages a network of dentists throughout the United States for union members, announced today an update in the progress of The Green Ozone Generator designed for use in dental offices. The Green Ozonator developed by the JV agreement between Union Dental and Drinkable Air has patent pending filings in 30 countries and through its filing of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is protected in its patent filing in an additional 150 countries. The JV also announced that preparations are being made to submit the product for FDA clearance and to obtain a UL listing with the intent of getting the The Green Ozone Generator mandated as a device of necessity for all dentists in the State of Florida as its initial target.

Dr. Green posted on YouTube a video entitled Greenozonegenerator (all one word) which demonstrates the need for and solution provided by The Green Ozone Generator for contaminated dental water lines, a significant problem within the dental professional. Action for this epidemic has been called for by the CDC, ADA, and the FDA. Dr. Green believes the Joint Venture has solved the problem of contaminated waterlines in dentistry which earlier this year were documented to have caused at least one fatality. The video shows the actions of the device, The Green Ozone Generator, in disinfecting dental office waterlines, a technology whose patent is pending. The device was designed in a JV between UDHI and DA, a company which manufactures atmospheric water generators and keeping the water pure through the use of the EnviroGuard system that uses ozone. Both devices will keep water sterile through their patented use of ozone.

Dr. George D. Green, President and CEO of UDHI, stated: "This video is a call to action for legislators within the state of Florida's congress to mandate the use of Green Ozone Generators in all Florida dental offices in order to protect the health and well being of the public. This mandate would incur a one time modest cost to the dental offices to ensure continuous sterility for patients during treatment." Dr. Green also commented, "Mandatory use seems like a logical conclusion to this problem once and for all."

As a Healthcare Provider for over 25 years, Steven J. Kairis, President/CEO of Drinkable Air has experienced the advantages of oxygen enriched ozonated water and the proven health benefits. He states: "This is a big step for both Union Dental and Drinkable Air to have a profound effect on controlling the bacteria issues in dental procedures with far reaching applications in the overall care of patients throughout the medical industry."
