  IRVINE, CA, Feb 12 (Marketwire) -- 
BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the world's leading manufacturer and
distributor of dental lasers, announced today that the Company was
recognized with the "Best AEEDC Dubai Booth Activities Award" for the
recent UAE International Dental Conference & Arab Dental Exhibition
(AEEDC Dubai) held from February 5 - 7, 2013, in Dubai, United Arab
Emirates. 

    Federico Pignatelli, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I
am very pleased to see that our WaterLase and EPIC diode technology is so
attractive that we had the busiest booth at the AEEDC, more so than any
other company including such prestigious companies as Sirona Dental
Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRO), The Procter & Gamble, Co. (NYSE: PG), and
Colgate-Palmolive Co. (NYSE: CL). The high level of traffic at our booth
underscores the exceptional interest that the global dental community is
developing in lasers, where we are the undisputed global leader. We plan
to continue to invest in our marketing efforts and conference attendance
during the 2013 first quarter in order to build a solid foundation for
the rest of the year."

    AEEDC Dubai is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin
Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance, and
President of the Dubai Health Authority, in co-operation with the Dubai
Health Authority. It is the pioneering and largest dental event in the
Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and provides a platform for
dental professionals and industry experts from the MENA region and other
parts of the world to update their knowledge, network, interact, and
generate business partnerships. Organizers estimate that this year's
exhibition had over 1,000 dental equipment suppliers from 70 countries
and over 28,000 attendees.

    "We are delighted to receive this recognition and I would like to thank
Dr. Nasser Al Malik, Conference Chairman, for presenting this award to
BIOLASE," said Bill Brown, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "AEEDC
Dubai is the foremost event in the MENA region and to be recognized as
the company with the best booth activities is very rewarding. This marks
our third time exhibiting at AEEDC Dubai and it has been great to observe
the tremendous growth in the interest of dental lasers in the region
during that period."
