CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., June 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Union Dental Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets:UDHI) - http://www.uniondental.com/ir - a Company that operates and manages a network of dentists throughout the United States for union members announced today it has received the Best of Coral Springs Award in the Dentists category by the U.S. Commerce Association for the third straight year in a row.

The USCA "Best of Local Business" Award Program recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country. Each year, the USCA identifies companies that they believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2011 USCA Award Program focused on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the USCA and data provided by third parties.

Dr. George D. Green, President and CEO stated: "We are extremely pleased to receive this award again as it represents over 25 years of hard work in building a well known and established business. The expansion into our new facility and our future expansion which we recently announced having a total of 22 operatories is one of the reasons we can accommodate more patients. This expansion in conjunction with our Dentistry From the Heart Day where we performed free dentistry for anyone who was facing financial hardship this year are just some of the reasons we have been honored with this award."
