Headquartered in Cerritos, California, Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. (MDT) was founded by Robert H. Gregg, II, DDS and Delwin McCarthy, DDS, in 1994. Drs. Gregg and McCarthy were fascinated by the possibilities of lasers in dentistry to provide a better experience for their patients; the possibility of a minimally-invasive perio treatment patients would accept.
THE HISTORY OF MILLENNIUM DENTAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
Throughout many years and the performance of thousands of procedures, these pioneering laser clinicians gained an extraordinary understanding of laser-tissue interaction. Dr. Gregg and Dr. McCarthy visualized the potential of the Free-Running Pulsed Nd:YAG laser for use in periodontal therapy and developed a minimally-invasive “recipe” that would replace the conventional scalpel and suture flap surgery that they knew patients dreaded.
Their vision, along with years of clinical use and copious research studies, resulted in the development of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ and the LANAP® protocol for the treatment of periodontal disease and promoting new periodontal connective tissue attachment.
The PerioLase® MVP-7™ also enables the treatment of peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis with the LAPIP™ protocol. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ for the LANAP® and LAPIP™ protocols is the most significant achievement in soft-tissue dental lasers since the inception of lasers. The FDA-cleared LANAP® protocol is the first patented periodontal protocol. Millennium Dental Technologies, still going strong with Dr. Gregg at the helm, continues to operate with the mission to create better clinical outcomes in patients with periodontal disease – and to remain true to the guiding principle:
