Appoints Istrodent as Exclusive Dental Distributor of the STA(TM) System in

South Africa

LIVINGSTON, N.J., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Milestone Scientific Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MLSS), the recognized leader in advanced injection technologies, today announced that Istrodent Pty Ltd AB, a leading South African distributor of dental products to professional dental practitioners, has been granted exclusive rights to market, distribute and sell Milestone's award-winning STA(TM) System throughout Southern Africa.

With its headquarters in Johannesburg and operations in Cape Town and Durban, Istrodent (http://www.istrodent.com) is one of the largest dental distributors and manufacturers in Southern Africa serving the needs of dentists in South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zambia, Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Angola, Malawi and Kenya. Recognized as the region's leading source for dental innovations and technical solutions, Istrodent represents numerous major brands and manufacturers in the global dental arena. Milestone joins other world leading suppliers that rely on Istrodent to reach the South African dental community, including KaVo-Germany, Soredex-Finland, Villa-Italy, AFP Imaging- USA, DCI-USA, SDS-USA, Tuttnauer-Israel, GC Material-Japan, OSADA Equipmen-Japan, KOMET-Germany, CATANI and MEDESY-Italy, among many others.

In addition, Istrodent has earned distinction throughout the Southern African region for building mobile dental clinics, a market it has dominated since 1994. Through Istrodent's successful collaborations with Colgate/Transnet on the Phelopepa Healthcare Train and with the South African Government, there are at least 100 mobile dental clinics currently in operation within the South African borders.

According to Joe Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Milestone, "Working with Istrodent, Milestone achieved notable market penetration of the South African dental market for The Wand(R). In fact, Istrodent has historically proven to be one of our strongest marketing allies outside of the United States. Consequently, we are pleased that we have the opportunity to once again leverage Istrodent's market leadership to introduce the STA System."

The state-of-the-art STA System is Milestone's latest achievement in computer-controlled local anesthesia delivery (CCLAD) that makes the injection process more comfortable for both dentists and patients. Marketed for use by dental practitioners to painlessly administer all dental injections, the STA System is uniquely capable of administering "Single Tooth Anesthesia" into the Peridontal Intraligamentary (PDL) space, something never before possible using conventional techniques. In 2007, Milestone was granted CE Mark approval for the STA System, paving the way to begin marketing the instrument to dentists in African countries and other countries around the world that recognize the CE Mark approval process.
