IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of dental lasers, including the Company's proprietary WaterLase®, and a pioneer in laser surgery in other medical specialties, as well as a distributor of digital radiography, intra oral scanners, and chair-side milling machines and 3-D printers for dentistry, today announced that it had been featured in a report on Dental Tribune's website.
The report, titled "Rimini show confirms that the future of dentistry is digital," cited BIOLASE as an example of a complete Digital Dental Solution provider. The article mentioned the efforts of BIOLASE in developing its Total Technology Solution. Dental Tribune reported, "In addition to its complete range of dental lasers, the US dental technology company now offers sophisticated imaging equipment and CAD/CAM solutions, such as the GALAXY BioMill System, which allows digital fabrication of restorations chair side."
In an article that also featured Henry Schein's ConnectDental pavilion, Sirona's Digital Dental Academy, and a new dental application for Google Glass, Federico Pignatelli, BIOLASE's CEO, was quoted as saying "The adoption cycle of new technologies is growing increasingly shorter and more advanced technologies like the WaterLase will rapidly find their way into dental practices. Dentists that do not upgrade their conventional equipment will likely begin to lose patients, become uncompetitive and lag behind."
Dental Tribune International CEO and publisher Torsten R. Oemus echoed this sentiment, "Turning dental offices into high-tech playgrounds is indeed becoming a global trend, which reaps rewards for patients and dentists alike. Technology is what differentiates a modern dental office from a conventional one, increases patient flow, and advances diagnostic and treatment outcomes, which ultimately leads to increased revenues."
