Union Dental and Drinkable Air Update the Status of Drinkable Air Canada Grants From Fleming and Sheridan Colleges

CORAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwired - October 07, 2014) - 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 grants received from Fleming and Sheridan Colleges by Drinkable Air Canada and how they positively relate to Union Dental business.

Drinkable Air Canada received a personnel grant from Fleming College which resulted in the procurement of a communications specialist to assist in marketing Drinkable Air's Chameleon 8's to dentists and other target markets for a twelve week period this fall. Union Dental provided Drinkable Air Canada a list of over 65,000 dentists to begin a targeted marketing campaign. Each sale to a dentist will result in Union Dental receiving an override.

Additionally, Drinkable Air Canada has begun a Capstone Project with Sheridan College Department of Applied Research and Industry Projects to support ongoing R & D on both the Chameleon 8 and the Green Ozonator. These "capstone" projects occur within an upper year project based course, usually in the final semester or year of a student's program. The industry or community partner provides a business problem, which is given to a student or group of students to address and develop solutions. These research projects are integrated into the curriculum and serve as a core component of the course. The engineering students have begun their evaluation of these products and we will begin to utilize the facilities provided by both Sheridan and Xerox Research Center.

Dr. George D. Green, President and CEO of UDHI, stated: "We appreciate the Drinkable Air team using its resources to help facilitate business for Union Dental and help complete the design and manufacturing of the Green Ozonator. We have continually worked together to facilitate growth and increase shareholder value and look forward to generating more revenues and savings from these grants. We would like to personally thank both Fleming and Sheridan Colleges for their support as well as Mr. Michael Bourgon, COO of Drinkable Air Canada who set up the structure and the marketing campaign."

Steven J. Kairis, President/CEO of Drinkable Air, Inc., states: "We would like to thank Fleming College and Sheridan College for sharing our vision of providing 'Water for the World' and providing the Grants to help facilitate our growth. We have a special group of Strategic Partners that developed a mutually beneficial strategy for maximizing these funds and adding value for our shareholders."

About Drinkable Air, Inc.

Drinkable Air, Inc. (a Florida corporation) ("DA" or "The Company") offers to the U.S. and international markets atmospheric water generators ("AWG") which will enable people to enjoy pure, 99.9% clean water. The water supply is obtained from the humidity in the air and condensed, processed and purified through a patented process. Drinkable Air's Chameleon line of AWG's is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution to the world's ever-growing need for pure, clean drinking water. The Company's proprietary EnviroGuard System eliminates bacteria and purifies the water with an ozone process which oxygenates the water. This process keeps the water pure, fresh and great tasting at all times.

In addition to the AWG market, Drinkable Air has been exploring other uses of ozone to combat a multitude of problems in keeping water free of bacteria and viruses. The joint venture agreement with Union Dental was the first step in expanding the uses of ozone in the dental field and we are additionally pursuing other medical applications.
