I am a practicing dentist and was very excited
about the claims made by biolase concerning the
millenium laser. So much so, that after the Chicago
midwinter meeting in February I had actually decided to buy
one, provided their claims were true.I tried to buy
one using the 2 major dental supply companies; schein
and patterson, neither could provide any information
about the product. This was a serious concern.
I directly contacted the company.I have spoken to
three different represenatives, each was told I was
ready to buy and please send information, still no
Anyone out there have this thing? How is it and how were
you able to get one?
I found this online drugstore that is
giving away three free products, like
Gillette, etc - full sizes
to get people to visit
their site. Visit now before they don't have this
This is a toothbrush(not electric or electronic
like sonicare), that emits a red light through the

will try again for a longer period. Dentists will not
be happy about this product because it may take a
souce of income away from them, namely in office/at
home bleaching. However patients may like it and may
buy these units. For patients who still do bleaching
with dentists, this brush offers a nice way to keep
the newly whiten teeth forever white.
dentists recommend this...That remains to be seen. But
with all the marketing going on people may buy it
without consulting their DDS. Will this alienate dentists
to BLTI, and effect sales of their Millenium
laser(after all the laser is where it's at fot this company).
In my humble opinion...NO! not if the laser is
everything it purports to be. DDS's will buy the best laser
available, the laser that is easiest to use, and the laser
that has most applications to patient care. For now it
seems to be the Millenium.
Hold on longs...here we
FINALLY, to market, to market...
presented correctly, this should go over like gangbusters.
Whether it really does a great job in whitening is
neither here nor there. It's the public's perception.
Let's hope the marketing is effective.
