Financial Guidance for Fiscal Year 2014

The Company is providing guidance for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2014 ("fiscal year 2014"). This guidance is intended solely to give investors an understanding of management's expectations for the full fiscal year in light of recent industry sales trends, seasonality of the business and recognition that much of the sales generated in the dental industry occur in the fourth quarter. The guidance does not take into account, or give effect for, any events that are beyond the Company's reasonable control.

Full Fiscal Year Ending December 31, 2014 Quantitative Guidance Net revenues $9.0M - $11.0M



We anticipate increasing sales of the digital imaging product portfolio in the latter part of Q3 and throughout Q4 of Fiscal 2014 due to seasonal buying patterns in the dental industry as a result of tax incentives for dental and medical health practitioners in the US. We look forward to potentially exceeding the Company's revenue guidance through greater than anticipated impact of the our marketing and tradeshow programs in addition to the receipt of more favorable terms from key suppliers while also expecting to manage our operating expenses in line with the Company's anticipated revenue growth.
