BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ:BIOL) , the global leader in dental lasers that is committed to elevating the total dental experience, today introduced dentistry’s first-ever Practice Growth Guarantee with the launch of the new, advanced WaterLase iPlus 2.0.

WaterLase iPlus 2.0, the next generation of the world’s most-preferred all-tissue laser, will debut this week in the BIOLASE booth (#601) at the Chicago Dental Society’s Mid-Winter Meeting at McCormick Place West. The new laser includes important innovations and improvements resulting in satisfied patients and dental practice growth. WaterLase iPlus 2.0 also marks the debut of the SureFire YSGG Delivery System which ensures greater uptime and routine use for dentists. In addition, the laser integrates REPaiR as an app for minimally invasive treatment of periodontitis.

“The groundbreaking Practice Growth Guarantee and new WaterLase iPlus 2.0 stem from the disciplined innovation that is at the core of the new BIOLASE,” said President and CEO Jeffrey M. Nugent. “Because we believe in its value and quality improvements, we are standing behind WaterLase iPlus 2.0 by making it the first dental laser ever backed by a guarantee to provide growth in dental practices. This bold and exciting guarantee demonstrates the commitment to our customers’ success with the new WaterLase iPlus 2.0 laser.”

The unique Practice Growth Guarantee is an assurance that WaterLase iPlus 2.0 will make a difference by enhancing the patient experience and generating practice growth through routine use.

“The Practice Growth Guarantee and the new WaterLase iPlus 2.0 represent another key step in the transformation of BIOLASE,” Nugent added. “We have listened to customers’ feedback, and we believe this new laser will elevate the total dental experience. The results our successful customers are seeing in their practices, ranging from more satisfied patients to very positive clinical outcomes, gives us the confidence to guarantee their growth with our new breakthrough laser,” said Mr. Nugent.

Internationally, version 2.0 of the WaterLase iPlus will launch at Pacific Dental Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, March 5-7, 2015 and at the world’s largest dental event, the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne, Germany, March 10-14, 2015.

SureFire YSGG Delivery System

The SureFire YSGG Delivery System, which results in more dependability and uptime for the dentist, includes:

  • A replaceable, disposable shield that protects the vital optical components in the SureFire fiber.

REPaiR for Successfully Treating Periodontitis

The REPaiR laser perio app:

  • Was based on years of clinical development by a team of periodontists and dentists from around the world including noted periodontist, educator and innovator Dr. Samuel L. Low.
  • Is an achievable, repeatable minimally invasive procedure that is less traumatic than traditional surgical techniques and delivers better and gentler experiences for patients.
