Millennium Dental Technologies is a company formed by clinicians, for clinicians.
LASER PERIODONTAL THERAPYTM was developed by Robert H. Gregg II, D.D.S. and Delwin K. McCarthy, D.D.S., the founders of Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. These pioneering laser clinicians were fascinated by the possibilities of lasers and dentistry soon after their first introduction. Over many years of laser dentistry and the performance of thousands of procedures, they gained an extraordinary understanding of laser/tissue interaction. Early in their experience, they visualized the potential of the Free Running Pulsed Nd:YAG laser for use in periodontal therapy and developed a "recipe" that would replace the scalpel/suture flap surgery that patients dread. This vision, and more than a decade of research, clinical trials and dedication, resulted in the founding of Millennium Dental Technologies, and the development of the PerioLase? II, the most significant achievement in soft tissue dental lasers since their inception and LASER PERIODONTAL THERAPYTM, the first patented periodontal procedure.
1989: Dr. Robert Gregg and Dr. Delwin McCarthy began their research into dental lasers and in four years had a prototype for what would eventually become the PerioLase? dental laser.
1994: Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. was formed to market the PerioLase?.
1997: LASER PERIODONTAL THERAPYTM, the breakthrough procedure created by Dr. Gregg and Dr. McCarthy, became the first periodontal treatment ever to be granted a patent.
2001: Millennium Dental Technologies receives clearance from the Food and Drug Administration to market the PerioLase? MVP-7 as a device for laser curettage (removal of inflamed, diseased soft tissue in the periodontal pocket) and enamel caries removal.
