Rapid Dose Therapeutics Launches QuickStrip™ Dental Products in the Canadian Market QuickStrip™ Xylitol and Lidocaine to offer consumers needle-free options for dental procedures

BURLINGTON, Ontario – May 10, 2023- Rapid Dose Therapeutics Corp. (“RDT”) (CSE: DOSE), a Canadian biotechnology company revolutionizing drug delivery through innovation has launched two unique dental QuickStrip™ products across the country.

The QuickStrip technology will initially have two applications in the dental industry:

· LQS™, a Lidocaine thin film to be used professionally as a topical anesthetic application to provide pain free dental treatment and assisting in allowing pain free local anesthetic where injection is required.
· XyliStrip™, oral dissolving thin film strip, to be used for the treatment of dry mouth and xerostomia.

“The initial uptake and interest of the QuickStrip dental products by dentists across the country has been extremely positive, helping to simplify the steps that dentists need to prepare patients for procedures,” said Mark Upsdell, CEO Rapid Dose Therapeutics. “The advent of an oral lidocaine strip adds greatly to the dental clinic’s ability to deliver needle-free dental procedures, resulting in reduced patient anxiety. Furthermore, dentists spend a great deal of time managing dry mouth and xerostomia during procedures, which will be reduced significantly with the application of the Xylitol strip.”  Information about the Company’s dental QuickStrip products can be found by visiting and will be showcased at the following dental meetings:

· May 11-13, 2023: Ontario Dental Association Conference
Location: Metro Toronto Convention Centre- Booth # 1303 and 1611
· May 29-30, 2023: Ordres des dentistes du Quebec (JDIQ) Annual Convention

RDT is committed to product innovation and will continue to introduce additional products throughout the year.
