President and CEO Harold Flynn, Jr. said “We made significant progress throughout 2016 in our most important strategic and operational goal—transforming BIOLASE into an expansive and disciplined commercial enterprise.  Although lumpy, we achieved 7% revenue growth globally for the year, highlighted by double-digit revenue growth in the U.S., our most important market, within all of our core laser business.  We expanded our margins and significantly cut our operating cash burn rate while building out the leadership team to take us through the next phase of development.  Perhaps the best evidence of transformation is our successful execution in product development. Today, we are off and running with two new laser systems that hold promise to significantly increase the global penetration of dental lasers: the Waterlase Express, our smallest, easiest to use, most-educational, customer supportive and affordable all-tissue laser system ever; and the Epic Pro, a diode laser system created through our promising collaboration with IPG Medical that offers advancements in cutting speed, control, and precision as well as improvements in consistency and predictability.
