METAIRIE, La., Feb 13 /PRNewswire/ -- OrthoSynetics(TM), the largest provider of business services to orthodontic and dental practices worldwide, today lauded the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) suit against Bart Palmisano, Jr., former chief financial officer and chief operating officer of OCA, Inc. (OCA). In conjunction with the filing of the complaint, Palmisano, Jr. consented to the entry of an order imposing a $100,000 fine and a 10 year bar from serving as an officer or director of a public company. OrthoSynetics(TM) is the new trade name of OCA since OCA emerged from bankruptcy last year.

"The suit was expected and is consistent with the complaint we previously filed against the old OCA's management and directors. We cooperated with the SEC throughout this process and there were no surprises in their findings."
