BURNABY, British Columbia – September 30, 2014 – LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. (“LED Medical” or “the Company”) has participated in several conferences in the United States in the last few weeks that have raised the Company’s profile. These forums have also enabled CEO Dr. David Gane and members of the marketing team to convey information to conference participants about the Company’s expanding portfolio of new digital imaging technology products and its future growth strategy.
“We are delighted to have these opportunities to illustrate the capabilities of our new digital imaging products on a national stage provided by these conferences in the U.S., the largest market for dental imaging products in the world” stated CEO Dr. David Gane. “Raising the profile of our new products at this time of the year is important because most American dentists make the majority of their equipment purchases in the last quarter due to specific tax incentives. We recently issued revenue projections for 2014 which we plan to attain by proactively marketing our products through various initiatives such as the conferences we recently attended”.
The conferences that the Company has attended in the past month include the California Dental Association Annual Conference, entitled “CDA Presents the Art and Science of Dentistry”, in San Francisco, California (Sept. 4 to 6), the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons 94th Annual Meeting (AAOMS) in Honolulu, Hawaii (Sept. 8 to 13) and the American Academy (AAP) of Periodontology 100th Annual Meeting and Exhibition in San Francisco, California (Sept. 20 to 22).
The CDA Conference, which was attended by more than 27,000 dental professionals, was one of the first opportunities that LED Medical has had to display the Samsung RAYSCAN Alpha – Expert to the general dental market. In addition to the RAYSCAN Alpha, a multi-function digital extraoral imaging system with 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), the rest of the new digital imaging technology product line was presented. The Company also had a separate booth for the Velscope® Vx, a hand held medical device used by dentists to conduct screenings for oral cancer and other oral mucosal diseases, where product demonstrations were conducted and sales leads were collected.
At the AAOMS Annual Meeting, the RAYSCAN Alpha was introduced for the first time to the oral and maxillofacial surgery market. The Company also displayed and demonstrated the Opteo intraoral sensors and the LED IC100 and LED IC200 cameras.
The AAP Annual Meeting marked the first time that the RAYSCAN Alpha and the Company’s other digital imaging products have been presented and demonstrated at a periodontal trade show. A considerable amount of interest was expressed in the RAYSCAN Alpha, the Opteo sensors and both the Company’s intraoral cameras.
LED Medical will be attending several other conferences this year including:
- Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists 78th Session in Anaheim, California (Oct. 3 to 4);
- 155th American Dental Association (ADA) Annual Session in San Antonio, Texas (Oct. 9 to 11);
