Clinical Laser Symposium attendance skyrockets

Jan. 29, 2002
Over 240 dentists and hygienists from around the world, academicians from five different universities, and leaders from important dental organizations attended the BIOLASE Symposium.

BIOLASE Technology, Inc., a medical technology company focused on the dental laser market, today announced that attendance at its 2nd Annual Clinical Laser Symposium increased by 400% over last year's meeting. The main objective and focus of the Symposium was advanced training on the company's Waterlase(TM) and LaserSmile(TM) systems.

The U.S. can hardly flash a toothy grin since earning an uninspiring C on a national report card released today by the advocacy group Oral Health America. The nation received its lowest grades in areas concerning prevention and access to care, showing that basic oral health is still not a priority for policymakers.
