Union Dental Prevails in Lawsuit

CORAL SPRINGS, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 8, 2007 -- Union Dental Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: UDHI) -- -- a Company that operates and manages a network of dentists throughout the United States for union members, announced today they have prevailed in a lawsuit filed in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania (Case No: 2006-00556) by Jaromir Kovarik and Daria Kovarikova against Union Dental Corp., a UDHI subsidiary. The lawsuit claimed the company violated 47 U.S.C. Section 227(b) (1) (c) in connection with the distribution of unsolicited facsimile transmissions.

Dr. George D. Green, President and CEO, stated: "Negative issues, such as this frivolous lawsuit, always distract management of any company and ours is no different. I find it disconcerting that the Plaintiff would pursue the issue, as was done in this case, after evidence was established that we were not associated in any way with the dissemination of this information. Pennsylvania law does allow for the prevailing party to file suit for the legal fees spent in defending itself and we are currently evaluating our options. I am pleased this legal issue is now behind us and we can concentrate on more positive aspects of building our core business."

Dr. Green further stated: "We are now focusing on developing the network of independent dental providers to service our contract with the Association of Flight Attendants which we signed last August. AFA-CWA represents the employees of 20 major airlines such as United, US Airways, Northwest, America West, Alaska Airlines, PSA, Mesa, Air Wisconsin, Aloha, ATA, Spirit, Air Tran, AWA, American Eagle, Midwest Airlines, Miami Air, Piedmont, Horizon & Hawaiian. We are also looking to expand our network of service providers for the local labor unions such as CWA, IBEW and UA."
