Union Dental to Acquire Dental Facility in Charlotte, NC

CORAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwire - November 19, 2007) - Union Dental Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: UDHI) -- -- announced today it has entered into a purchase agreement to acquire Jakubek Dental in Charlotte, NC. The target acquisition is a company strategy to buy dental practices in heavily populated union areas where UDHI has contracts with local and national labor unions to build a dental network. As a part of these labor contracts, the union will not endorse any other dental network. In the Charlotte area, UDHI has a national contract with (AFA-CWA) representing 21 airlines including US Air which has its headquarters in Charlotte. UDHI also has a contract with the CWA Telecoms (original AT&T and Bell South/new AT&T) in Charlotte and Gastonia, NC. The facility will incorporate all aspects of dentistry including Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Endodontics, Periodontics, Pedodontics, Prosthodontics as well as General Dentistry.

Dr. Green, President and CEO of Union Dental, commented: "We have tremendous support from the labor unions and UDHI wants to capitalize on its 20 year relationship with these unions of providing quality dentistry to CWA members. I have personally met with the presidents of the local chapters of these unions and have their complete support in an effort to establish a premier dental facility to service the needs of these loyal union members. This new facility will be state-of-the-art in dental delivery with plenty of room for future expansion. The practice is currently profitable, low sale priced, and the addition of this new business clientele will make success a virtual certainty. I plan on interviewing doctors for associate positions next month as well as supportive staff."
