Make America Great — Buy American!

US Dental Manufacturer Seeks to Protect Patients from Foreign Counterfeit Products

The PerioLase MVP-7 dental laser is proudly Made In America and exclusively designed to support the LANAP and LAPIP protocols for the treatment of gum disease and failing dental implants.

LOS ANGELESSept. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — An unusual complaint for the dental industry was filed with the US International Trade Association by Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. (MDT) against the Fotona LightWalker® family of products imported into the USA from Slovenia.  This complaint against a foreign importer is an effort to bar counterfeit and misbranded devices and products that hurt American jobs, hurt the American economy, and funnel money to off-shore banks.

“Despite multiple attempts to address the false and misleading advertising claims, Fotona has stubbornly persisted in deliberately misleading the public and the dental profession about certain periodontal procedures,” states Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, founder of MDT. “The fact is, only the PerioLase® MVP-7™, for the LANAP® protocol is FDA cleared forregeneration of tissue lost to periodontal diseaseNot only does this confusion adversely impact American manufacturing jobs and the American economy, it places patients in harm’s way from inferior and misbranded dental devices and procedures.  Fotona’s false claims prey upon uninformed dental professionals to deceive the marketplace and the profession from obtaining truthful information about the only FDA-cleared protocol and the Standard of Care for laser periodontal treatments.”
