ProDen Systems Inc., based in Vancouver, Washington manufactures the advanced ProScope and ProScope VCT intraoral dental camera systems. In this regard, the company constitutes a path to the dental office software market for AFP Imaging and its DENT-X International subsidiary. ProDen fits perfectly into AFP's strategy to expand into related dental hardware and software product line opportunities. The acquisition of ProDen means no less than a following step in the concentration on high tech dental industry.

Dentists all over the world are getting more and more enthusiastic about video and digital x-ray imaging. The high-quality intraoral dental camera allows both patient and dentist to view images on a chairside monitor or computer screen. Since 1991, ProDen has been developing this innovative video imaging technology. The average cost for a single video system lies between $5.000 to $7.500.

The new DENT-X software package in turn, beautifully integrates intraoral video or digital x-ray images with a variety of current dental practice management software offerings. In this regard, image management software forms the key building block for the dental office of the future, according to David Vozick from AFP Imaging, since dentists acquire complete control over their database of video, digital x-ray and scanned images. At short notice, reimbursement from third parties via Internet transmission will become reality, as well as the retrieval of images and documents.

ProDen's camera systems are complementary to the DENT-X company's digital x-ray products such as Sens-A-Ray(tm) and Scan-A-Ray(tm) which should promote the sales of both video cameras and software packages over the next twelve months. Both companies reside under AFP Imaging, a designer of equipment and systems to hospitals, radiologists, cardiologists, dentists and other medical specialists who are used to generate, record, process and view hard copy diagnostic images.

Aditionally, AFP Imaging equally presents an advanced software suite for dental patient education and cosmetic dentistry. The company's products are distributed worldwide.
