Make America Great -- Buy American!

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- An unusual complaint for the dental industry was filed with the US International Trade Association by Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. (MDT) against the Fotona LightWalker® family of products imported into the USA from Slovenia.  This complaint against a foreign importer is an effort to bar counterfeit and misbranded devices and products that hurt American jobs, hurt the American economy, and funnel money to off-shore banks.

"Despite multiple attempts to address the false and misleading advertising claims, Fotona has stubbornly persisted in deliberately misleading the public and the dental profession about certain periodontal procedures," states Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, founder of MDT. "The fact is, only the PerioLase® MVP-7™, for the LANAP® protocol is FDA cleared for regeneration of tissue lost to periodontal disease. Not only does this confusion adversely impact American manufacturing jobs and the American economy, it places patients in harm's way from inferior and misbranded dental devices and procedures.  Fotona's false claims prey upon uninformed dental professionals to deceive the marketplace and the profession from obtaining truthful information about the only FDA-cleared protocol and the Standard of Care for laser periodontal treatments."
