AMERICAN DENTAL LASER, INC. ANNOUNCES DECISION TO PROCEED WITH NEW KINETIC CAVITY PREPARATION INSTRUMENT

 AMERICAN DENTAL LASER, INC. ANNOUNCES DECISION TO PROCEED
 WITH NEW KINETIC CAVITY PREPARATION INSTRUMENT
 TROY, Mich., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- American Dental Laser (NASDAQ: ADLI) announced today that it has placed a $2.5 million order for production units of a new kinetic instrument that treats cavities more gently than a drill.
 The company introduced a prototype of the instrument April 6 at the International Dental Show in Cologne, Germany. It reported strong interest from both dental dealers and dentists attending the exhibition.
 The instrument, which will be marketed under the American Dental Laser name as the KCP 2000, uses alpha alumina, a food-grade inert particle borne in an air jet to remove tooth decay and structure (including enamel) and shape the filling site. The KCP 2000 was designed to complement the company's dental lasers, which perform a number of advanced procedures but cannot remove enamel.
 American Dental Laser has entered into an agreement with Texas Airsonics, Inc. and its principal shareholder to acquire all patents, patent applications, and other proprietary rights relating to kinetic energy technology for application in dentistry in exchange for 166,120 shares of ADL common stock and $340,000.
 The $2.5 million order is to be delivered to American Dental Laser over one year. The company said further product development must be completed and approvals or clearances must be obtained from governments in various markets, including the United States, before it makes the instrument available to dentists, which it hopes to do as early as August.
 American Dental Laser, headquartered in Troy, develops high- technology products for dentistry and markets them worldwide. The company's stock is traded on NASDAQ under the symbol ADLI.
