 LASER MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY, INC. FORMALLY INTRODUCES NEW PRODUCTS
 AT ADA CONVENTION
 SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Laser Medical Technology, Inc. (OTC: LMET), today announced it introduced its new line of lasers at the 1992 convention of the American Dental Association meeting in Orlando, Fla., beginning Saturday, Oct. 17. The new lasers are called the Laser 6 and the Laser 12, and are part of the company's NYLAD design line.
 Laser 6 and Laser 12 represent a basic mechanical redesign of the company's Nd:YAG laser, utilizing production efficiencies learned from the current laser product, the Laser-35. Laser 6 and 12 are smaller and more compact, and are designed to fit the market need for lower-cost dental lasers. Laser 6 produces from one to six watts and is capable of performing all soft tissue procedures in dentistry. Laser 12 can also perform most hard tissue procedures of which the Laser-35 is capable. Both the Laser 6 and 12 utilize the company's patented technology for water cooling the oral cavity while lasing to eliminate thermal damage. The Laser 6, which is easily upgradable to 12 watts, is priced lower than any competing full-size laser and in addition has this unique patented technology.
 Laser Medical Technology manufactures and markets advanced dental laser products. The company has 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 medium not only prevents thermal damage, but causes a photo acoustic effect which aids the removal of tissue. As a result of the use of a cooling medium, the company's lasers are uniquely capable of cutting mineralized hard dental tissue without killing the tooth. 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 tooth root) was accepted by the FDA.
