ASTORIA, NY--(Marketwire - August 13, 2009) -
United Treatment Centers, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UTRM
) announced today the signing of a definitive
joint venture agreement with Pump & Brush Finland Oy, which was a
prerequisite to the market launch of an innovative
and proprietary waterless toothbrush.
The Research and Development department of United Treatment Centers has
completed testing and refining Pump &
Brush Finland Oy's pump system to enhance functionality and reliability.
Under the provisions of the contract,
UTRM will enjoy exclusive rights of Pump & Brush Finland Oy's U.S. Pat. No.
5,918,995 and its foreign counterparts
to manufacture and sell UTRM's manual waterless toothbrush. This license
secures UTRM's global position to be the
sole provider of a product that will revolutionize dental hygiene.
Significantly, UTRM has a patent pending,
which will strengthen the company's growing market footprint in the
multibillion dollar oral Healthcare industry.
Globally, there are over two (2) billion people without access to sanitary
water, and the market for a

million people annually are victims of
waterborne diseases. In developed countries, the water free toothbrush
markets include the military,
business and leisure travellers and outdoor sport enthusiasts.
Frank Ottaviani, President of United Treatment Centers, said, "The
possibilities and potentials born from the
coupling of Pump & Brush's proven technology, and a 15 year track record
of over $100,000,000 in sales, and United Treatment Centers
