 LASER MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY, INC., ENGAGES A WORLD-CLASS LASER SCIENTIST
 SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Laser Medical Technology, Inc. (OTC: LMET) announced today that its has hired Dr. Alexander Danilov from the world-class Institute of General Physics in Moscow as chief laser scientist.
 Dr. Danilov's impressive credentials in the field of Laser physics include five years as a senior researcher at the Institute of Radio- Optics (Moscow). For more than six years, he was a senior research team member of Nobel Prize Laureate Alexander Prokhorov at the Institute of General Physics (Moscow) where he was in charge of the Solid State Laser Physics Department.
 Dr. Guy Levy, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, commented: "The addition of Dr. Danilov to our research team gives us the additional dimension needed to achieve our strategic product development goals. He will join and complement our current staff in the field of laser tissue interaction, one of the most advanced of its kind in the world."
 Laser Medical Technology manufactures and markets advanced dental products. The company received U.S. and foreign patents which cover the use of a cooling medium (such as water) on human tissue during the application of a laser beam. The cooling of the target tissue prevents thermal damage. Also the presence of the coolant facilitates the establishment of a photo acoustic effect which aids in the removal of tissue. As a result of the use of a target tissue cooling, the company's lasers are uniquely capable of cutting mineralized hard dental tissue without damage to the sensitive tooth pulp.
 The Laser-35 received FDA authorization to market for soft tissue applications in May, 1991. On March 30, 1992, the company announced that its Investigational Device Exemption application for apicoectomy (cutting of the hard tooth root) was accepted by the FDA.
