    Soft Tissue Laser---OLD NEWS!

    My only reply is that I have heard all this before from the company. Potential market size, expanded medical uses, the end of the drill, etc. I don't think a company running out of money, yet again, and with negative earnings, is inexpensive..I agree it's cheap. If Henry S. could not move these products why will direct, and inexperienced, sale people do any better?
    I've seen more than one dentist with a Waterlase gathering dust. I've seen my son experience pain with Waterlase treatment. I've talked to a number of dentists about their plans and not one wants the laser.
    As for the EPIC, BIOL is not the only company selling a soft-tissue laser, I believe. Maybe I'm wrong but at 1/10th the price of the Waterlase there has to be huge volume to be meaningful.
    I am not angry, I am disgusted that this company gets away with "Hopes and Dreams" marketing. It's so OBAMA! I will only change my thinking when I see a significant rise in sales and I don't count the rebound of 2011 as an increase except for it being an improvement over the dismal 2010. You have to go back and read the earnings/sales projections that never materialized and that were always explained away as somebody else's fault.
    I'll settle for a 5 bagger based on reality, if it ever happens at all verses falling for the hype this management continues to perpetuate.

      And you're so BUSHIE, a total loser. But that's no news to anyone who's seen your posts for the past about 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 years. Unfortunately for biol (when did they change the symbol? and why?), on this one you're right.

      Just my semi-annual visit, and i see nothing's changed.

    • Thanks John,
      I appreciate your candid feedback. Perhaps I am too enthusiastic. I am new to Biolase and it appears to me that the technology is second to none. By the way, I may be wrong, but as I understand it, the soft tissue laser is different than the ones offered by the competition in that it does not heat the tissue appreciably. Again, thank you for your reasoned response.

      Best Regards,
