Daniel Goldberger, Chief Executive Officer of Milestone Scientific stated, “We are delighted to see a growing number of dental residency programs and clinics, including those run by large hospitals such as the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh not only adopting The Wand®, but making it part of their curriculum. Our technology is particularly well suited for children, as we can deliver comfortable and effective, single tooth anesthesia, providing a safer and more pleasant experience. We are pleased to see our technology incorporated into the curriculum for specialty residents, as they represent the next generation of dental specialists. We expect these newly graduated specialty dentists will become lifetime users of The Wand® once they experience the advantages and reduced complications when using our technology
