    I don't see how this company can compete right
    now with Premier Laser(PL). PL has children's
    approval and BLTI does NOT.
    I can see a conversation
    with a dentist.

    Sales REP: We have an FDA
    approved hard tissue laser.
    Dentist: Is it approved
    for children?
    Sales rep: No, not yet.
    Dentist:
    PL has theirs already approved. My return on
    investment is significantly higher with PL's system. Your
    just not quite up to snuff.

    PL has already 70%
    of the laser dental market. BLTI has a tougher road
    ahead. PL is the Intel of lasers and BLTI is the AMD.
    Check out the numbers. The numbers don't lie. There you
    will find the true facts.

    • This link should have been credited to Webster500 from Premier message. I apologize for inadvertently leaving his name off when I copied it to Biolase board.

    • Biolase is completing clinicals on use of Skin
      Toner on skin striations or stretch marks. FDA
      application will follow completion of trials which I believe
      ( educated guess based on starting date and
      scheduled followups) is close. Biolase has previously
      received these types of clinical FDA appoval in very short
      time frames of 30-45 days. See SEC filings. They are
      definitely working on Skin Toner currently and continuing to
      test market toothbrush. My guess is that the
      toothbrush will probably be licensed to a consumer product
      company especially if FDA approval for germ killing comes
      through and concentrate on Millenium and Skin Toner. No
      way is Dr. O'Donnell going to let them ignore Skin
      Toner.

    • Certain people on this board talk about the
      negative implications of stockbashing. However, they
      confuse stockbashing with providing factual objective
      info on the current state of a company and its
      products. THIS IS NOT STOCKBASHING. It's called TRUTH.


      These same people are guilty of hyping the company and
      its products and spewing info that they refuse to
      substantiate. WHY? Because they are long the stock.

      The
      hypsters want the SEC and FBI to throw the stockbashers in
      jail but then they would also have to throw the
      hypsters in jail for spewing positive info for which they
      also CANNOT or will NOT substantiate. YOU CANNOT HAVE
      IT BOTH WAYS.

      One individual said that he
      cannot name his sources because then he will lose these
      contacts. If he is talking to employees and receiving this
      INSIDE info that general investors don't have, then it
      sounds like the SEC should be after him and his sources
      for unlawful leakage of info. Where else can he be
      getting this info that he claims is highly accurate?


      The last time I checked we have freedom of speech in
      this country. So there will be both stockbashers and
      stock hypsters. It is up to the investor to do their
      own homework, regardless of what is said on this
      board!!!!!!!

    • Puffy correct me if I'm wrong but I thought BLTI was not going to begin producing the Laser Skin Toner yet, because of a limited budget due to getting out three new products this year?

    • This is a preview of the actual article dealing with laser dentisty focusing on Biolase and Premier's FDA approval:

    • Response to your questions

      1 A number of
      Dentist who bought Premier's system and then returned
      because handpiece was defective.

      2. Handpiece
      works and they are demonstrating it. The replacement
      tip will cost approximatly $10

      3. Dentist can
      try system

      I wonder who the moron is? Why
      don't you go back and tak Stock Slamming 101 again. Try
      using facts in your arguments it helps

      Oh by the
      way what about the skin toner. It is the only
      non-invasive laser system skin system. It is also the only
      system to remove stretch marks. Think a few women would
      be interested in that? Cosmetic market dwarfs dental
      market. Either buy or live to regret it.

    • Hey Puffy

      You must be puffin' somethin'
      real hard. I think its scrambled your brains. These
      people,you talk to, have you set up right where they want
      you.

      Answer this one bud:
      Who the heck is
      going to purchase this $40,000 laser system at this
      time:

      1) when they don't even have a proven,workable
      handpiece????

      2) when a dentist can't even try out the
      system him or herself???

      A dentist would have to
      be an absolute moron to purchase under these
      conditions. Is this how you purchase products????

    • How many units did you expect them to sell at the
      conference? This is a $40,000 item not an impulse purchase. I
      think four confirmed sales is excellent. These
      conference exhibit spaces are usually information gathering.
      Strong leads means appoitments made for in-office
      presentation not request for information of which there were
      many

    • My information comes from my confidential
      sources. If I were to disclose my sources on a public
      bulletin board they would certainly dry up.My postings
      have been quite accurate. I stand by this statement
      and my others. If I am uncertain of information I use
      the word maybe. Look it up in Webster's. Do you
      "substantiate" all your postings? I stand by my postings both
      the current one and my past postings. I will repeat
      Biolase received 3 firm sales and approximatly 40 strong
      leads. The information on Premier is 2nd hand but I
      believe it is accurate. I will update the group when I
      receive hard information on Premier's results. Why don't
      you try to do the same!
