BIOLASE and Dental Care Alliance will work to expand dental laser adoption and training.
BIOLASE, Inc. has announced an agreement with Dental Care Alliance (DCA) to expand laser adoption and hands-on training programs in targeted regions. The agreement is expected to lead to a rollout across all DCA offices in 2021.
DCA is one of the largest dental support organizations in the US, with more than 330 affiliated practices in 20 states. These practices provide patients with a wide range of dental services, including general dentistry, endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, and periodontics.
"BIOLASE's' EpicXTM and Epic HygieneTM lasers are the standard of care in the dental industry," said Dr. Don Gallo, chief clinical officer for DCA. "We believe the adoption of this leading technology in our offices will provide a new standard of care for our hygiene appointments while ensuring a safer environment by reducing aerosolization and addressing early-stage periodontal disease. We are excited about the prospect of providing aerosol-free, less invasive soft tissue procedures, thereby creating a superior patient experience."
"Our industry-leading dental lasers allow us to properly service a customer like DCA, and by reducing aerosols in dental offices we believe we can improve the safety of its office staff and patients," said Todd Norbe, BIOLASE President and CEO. "The demand for EpicX and Epic Hygiene lasers is rising, and this year alone we have sold over 100 systems to DCA. We are excited to be partnering with DCA as they continue to roll out our Epic lasers across their US offices."
