IRVINE, Calif. & COLOGNE, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BIOLASE, Inc., (NASDAQ: BIOL) the global leader in dental lasers, announced today that it would showcase its two new, game-changing, minimally invasive dental lasers, the Waterlase Express all-tissue laser and the Epic Pro soft-tissue diode laser, at the 37th International Dental Show (IDS) March 21-25 in Cologne, Germany. The show, the world’s largest dental meeting with 2,300 exhibitors from 60 countries, is expected to draw more than 140,000 visitors. IDS is known for its presentations of the latest products, developments and trends in the global dental industry.
The Waterlase Express features the Company’s fifth generation laser technology and represents the new foundation of the Company’s strategy to greatly expand all-tissue laser use in dentistry. It is the industry’s smallest, easiest to use most technologically advanced, customer supportive and affordable dental all-tissue laser system. It was designed with simple, elegant user controls and learning tools so that every dentist, even those new to lasers, can easily learn its capabilities.
The Epic Pro, the first commercially available laser system created in collaboration with IPG Medical Corporation, is the Company’s premium diode laser solution and is unlike anything else on the market. It offers advancements in power, cutting speed, control and precision and allows BIOLASE to access new segments of the market it has not penetrated, including oral and maxillofacial surgery.
BIOLASE President and CEO Harold C. Flynn, Jr. and Holger Arens, the new Vice President and Managing Director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) who is based in Germany, will be among the Company’s executives attending the show and meeting with key distributors and clinicians.
“We believe the international dental market—and in particular Europe and the Middle East, the largest single geographic region in dentistry—represents a tremendous, untapped opportunity for laser dentistry,” Flynn said. “With our two new innovative products now being sold in the US and select international markets, and Holger on the ground building a much stronger and broader presence, we are confident we can reach an entirely new level of market penetration. We are offering the industry a glimpse of dentistry of the future and this conference is an excellent place to showcase our products and the progress we have made as a company. We believe with the addition of these two ground breaking products, we now have lasers for every dentist and that laser dentistry will become the standard of care in modern dentistry.”
BIOLASE will be located in the following stands: German/Intl. Pavilion, Hall 11.3, Stand E050 and US Pavilion, Hall 04.2, Stand L060 M061. Visitors will see a fully interactive exhibition and display, hands-on demonstrations of the laser system portfolio and guest speakers.
