Date:4/21/2008

LIVINGSTON, N.J., April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Milestone Scientific Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MLSS), the recognized leader in advanced injection technologies, today announced that Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry (MD&DI) magazine has distinguished the STA(TM) System as a winner of the 2008 Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA) in the "dental instruments, equipment and supplies" product category. Of the 33 products to receive an MDEA this year, Milestone's STA System was one of only two winning products that serve dental practitioners.

Sponsored by MD&DI, the Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition is the premier awards program for the medical technology community. It recognizes the achievements of medical device manufacturers, their suppliers and the many people behind the scenes -- engineers, scientists, designers and clinicians -- who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare. MDEA-winning entries excel in the areas of product innovation, design and engineering achievement, end-user benefit and cost effectiveness in manufacturing and healthcare delivery. To select the 2008 winners, a comprehensive review of the entries was performed by an impartial, multidisciplinary panel of third party jurors with expertise in biomedical engineering, human factors, medicine and diagnostics. The 2008 jury selected 33 winners in 10 medical product categories.

"We are delighted that our award winning STA System continues to be recognized by leading industry publications as the best of the best in dental innovations," stated Joe Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Milestone. In July 2007, noted industry publication Dentistry Today featured the STA System as one of the Top 100 Products in 2007. "These industry acknowledgements are helping Milestone and its global distributor network to accelerate industry adoption of the STA System as the new standard of care for dental injections."

"The team at Milestone Scientific is honored by this prestigious award. Over the years, our technology has been validated in numerous clinical studies published in professional journals documenting positive clinical results. This award, however, represents a new category of validation for us, so we are very pleased indeed," noted Dr. Mark Hochman, Director of Clinical Affairs of Milestone and STA System inventor.

The award ceremony will be held June 4, 2008 during the Medical Design and Medical Manufacturing East 2008 Conference and Exposition at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
