BIOLASE Introduces GALAXY BioMill CAD/CAM System at Greater New York Dental Meeting

BIOLASE Introduces GALAXY BioMill CAD/CAM System at Greater New York Dental 
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/02/13 --  BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ:
BIOL), the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of dental
lasers, and a pioneer in laser surgery in other medical specialties,
today announced that it has introduced its GALAXY BioMill CAD/CAM
System at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, the largest dental
congress and exposition in the United States. The show, held at the
Javits Center in New York City, began Sunday, December 1, 2013, and
runs through December 4, 2013. The GALAXY BioMill System can be
viewed at booth #600 with live milling demonstrations throughout the
show. BIOLASE is also participating with booths in the Laser and
Imaging Pavillions. 
The GALAXY BioMill, developed and designed by BIOLASE in conjunction
with imes-icore GmbH in Germany, is an open-architecture CAD/CAM
system for scanning, designing, milling and finishing crowns, inlays,
and veneers in the dental office in a single appointment. Also termed
"chair-side" milling, the GALAXY BioMill System will utilize 3Shape
Corporation's Trios fast and highly accurate intra-oral scanner to
capture high resolution three-dimensional ("3-D") digital images of
the teeth and crown-preparation site, which are then processed
through a CAD/CAM software program to design the dental restoration.
The design is then transferred to the GALAXY BioMill to mill the
crown using the latest in aesthetically pleasing, biological
compatible, and long-lasting tooth colored materials. 
Federico Pignatelli, Chairman and CEO of BIOLASE, said, "The GALAXY
BioMill System completes BIOLASE's strategic plan to offer dentists a
wide portfolio of high-tech hard- and soft-tissue dental lasers, 2-D
and 3-D digital radiography, and CAD/CAM products. With the
introduction of the GALAXY BioMill System, BIOLASE has truly become a
one-stop-shop for dentists. Not only do our technologically advanced
products increase patient and doctor satisfaction, but they also
offer tremendous return-on-investment. As a direct example, the
GALAXY can cut in half a dental practice's monthly laboratory fees,
freeing up a substantial amount of capital to be re-invested in
cutting edge high-tech products such as the WaterLase iPlus or NewTom
digital radiography. Adding a WaterLase iPlus substantially increases
a dentist's return-on-investment by creating opportunities for new
procedures, more efficiencies on existing procedures, and increasing
the overall number of procedures performed in-house instead of
referring them to outside specialists. 
"The GALAXY BioMill System enters a highly promising market running
at over half a billion dollars annually and growing at an estimated
rate of 20% to 25% per year. The GALAXY, priced very competitively,
will compete head-to-head with the market leading CEREC, manufactured
by Sirona Dental Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRO)," Pignatelli concluded. 
"BIOLASE's laser technology reinvigorated my passion for dentistry
and my practice," said Howard Golan, D.D.S., J.D., of Golan Family
Dentistry in Williston Park, New York. "With the introduction of the
GALAXY BioMill System, BIOLASE has become the industry's most
comprehensive technology solution provider. WaterLase has been a
significant revenue driver in my practice and chair-side milling is
no different. I need only 14 in-house restorations per month to pay
for my chair-side milling machine with savings from lab fees and
associated variable costs, and I currently average about 25 per
month. Further, the GALAXY BioMill System has a significantly lower
entry price and substantially lower operating costs than the industry
"I have received calls from all over the world about the GALAXY
BioMill System," said Christoph Stark, Managing Director of
imes-icore GmbH. "People have been very interested to learn more
about the optimized and integrated solution we have introduced for
chair-side milling as a result of the three-way collaboration between
imes-icore, 3Shape, and BIOLASE. We believe that chair-side
restoration is a growing market and the GALAXY BioMill System offers
an open and complete solution for dental offices and clinics. The
BioMill can use nearly all materials available in the market today
and its open architecture will enable it to remain flexible to
integrate additional materials and methods in the future."
