INDIANAPOLIS, IN (Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - AMD LASERS, the world's leading dental laser company, announced today the expansion of its domestic and international distribution channels of the number one dental laser in the world, Picasso. The expansion includes the buildup of AMD sales representatives in the United States and a new agreement for Ortho Technology to distribute AMD LASERS' products to the orthodontic market in over 65 countries including the US.
Alan Miller, President and CEO, commented, "I am very pleased that our award winning dental lasers are recognized around the world as the gold standard in quality and affordability. We have been quietly building our U.S. sales force, international distribution channels, customer service, and expanding our R&D and manufacturing facility to meet the demands for our products. Picasso dental lasers can already be found in over 60 countries and with the addition of Ortho Technology, patients world-wide will be the real benefactors of this wonderful technology."
Ortho Technology has entered into an exclusive agreement to distribute the Picasso Lite laser to orthodontists worldwide. The Picasso Lite laser can be used to expose unerupted teeth, remove soft tissue for bracket, band, and TAD placement, treat ulcerative lesions and canker sores, perform frenectomies, and gingival contouring. The Picasso Lite laser assists the orthodontist with treatments such as minimization of blood and tissue fluid interference, accelerated healing of ulcerative lesions, and offers great coagulation.
"Adding an innovative product such as the Picasso Lite laser to increase orthodontic office productivity with the #1 laser company in the world makes perfect sense," said Paul Wilkens, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. "Ortho Technology strives for excellence in the manufacturing and distribution of quality products and is proud to be an exclusive distributor of the Picasso Lite laser to the orthodontic market."
The Picasso family of lasers includes Picasso, Picasso II, Picasso Rx, Picasso CS-Perio, Picasso Lite, and Picasso ATL. "Our commitment speaks for itself. We have heavily reinvested into R&D and remained profitable and charitable. I started this company with one goal and one vision -- a laser in every office and a laser in every operatory. Patients deserve the best treatment possible and laser technology is the standard of care. The only way they were going to receive it was by making the technology affordable. We continue to lead the way for doctors and patients," says Miller.
