LED Medical Inc. Announces Appointment of Dr. Jeffrey Brooks as Vice President of Imaging for LED Dental
BURNABY, British Columbia March 26, 2014 - LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. ("LED Medical" or the "Company") announced today that it has appointed Dr. Jeffrey Brooks to the role of Vice President of Imaging for LED Dental Ltd. ("LED Dental"), a wholly-owned US subsidiary of LED Medical Diagnostics Inc.
Dr. Brooks is a board certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with 20 years of private practice experience. He has a special interest in 3D Imaging technology and holds multiple technology certifications. "I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff for many years during my tenure at Carestream, where he was Vice President of Clinical Affairs," states Dr. David Gane, CEO of LED Medical. "His passion and dedication are unsurpassed and I am delighted that he has chosen to bring his knowledge and expertise to the leadership team at LED Dental." Dr. Brooks will continue to maintain his positions as Associate Professor and 3D Imaging Director in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at University of Tennessee at Memphis.
LED Dental's VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System is currently the world's most frequently used adjunctive technology when screening for oral tissue anomalies, including early stage oral cancer and pre-cancer. Despite this accomplishment, management believes the company has only superficially tapped into its clinical and commercial potential.
In the last half of 2013, LED Dental initiated a change of leadership personnel in preparation for its next stage of evolution. "The addition of Jeff to our team marks another important milestone in our team building efforts. With his drive, energy, experience and knowledge, Jeff will play a key role in our corporate growth strategy and accelerate our efforts to introduce new diagnostic imaging products as we work to become a leading player in the dental industry," continues Dr. Gane.
