    Technology4Medicine to have exclusive U.S. distribution rights for
    Oralase in the U.S.
    

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 6 /CNW/ - MedX Health Corp. (TSXV: MDX), a global
leader in developing drug free, non-invasive therapeutics for tissue repair
and pain relief, today announced that the Oralase(TM) Portable Laser has been
cleared for marketing by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). MedX's
distribution partner, Technology4Medicine, a laser company in San Clemente, CA
will begin immediate distribution of Oralase to dental offices in the United
States. Oralase is a photobiomodulation device, also known as low level laser
therapy (LLLT), exclusively designed for dentists to alleviate pain and
accelerate tissue repair following dental procedures.
    "We are very pleased to have received the 510(k) Clearance Letter from
the FDA so that we can begin to immediately provide the dental community with
our non-invasive and drug free solution to relieve pain due to surgical and
other procedures. Oralase will not only relieve the pain by accelerating
tissue repair, but it will provide patients the increased comfort of
accelerated healing," said Steve Guillen B.Sc., M.B.A., president and chief
executive officer, MedX Health. "Through our partnership with
Technology4Medicine, we expect to fulfill a great unmet need in the dental
community as well as other markets including dermatology and plastic surgery."
    "With this FDA clearance, we will offer Oralase to dentists across the
U.S. taking dentistry to a new level, increasing production for the dental
office, and providing a better experience for patients," stated Jeffrey W.
Jones, chief executive officer of Technology4Medicine. "We are looking forward
to launching Oralase at booth No.3051 at the upcoming American Dental
Association meeting in San Antonio, TX, October 15-18. Oralase should be a
fundamental component of today's high tech practice. It can dramatically
differentiate today's dentist. We believe we have a winning formula in
bringing the latest technology for quick uptake and use in this $1 Billion
marketplace."

    
    About Oralase(TM)
    -----------------
    Oralase is an ergonomically designed portable low level laser device that
offers dental staff a proven, drug-free solution to reduce or eliminate pain
and accelerate soft and hard tissue repair. Oralase is designed to effectively
control pain and decrease swelling from invasive dental procedures as well as
stimulate healing.

    About Low-Level Laser Therapy
    ------------------------------
    
    For more than 35 years, LLLT has been used in Europe, Australia, Asia and
Russia for the treatment of pain and tissue repair. MedX's LLLT was approved
in Canada in 1999 and in the United States in 2002. LLLT uses a specific type
of light to penetrate the skin's surface and underlying tissues to stimulate
the body's natural repair processes. The result is faster healing and reduced
pain, swelling and inflammation. The technology has advanced laser therapy
significantly, and Oralase embodies the new generation of photobiomodulation
technology for health care today.
