Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

Effective June 1, 2013, Milestone Scientific Inc.'s (the "Company") independent registered public accounting firm, Holtz Rubenstein Reminick LLP ("HRR") combined its practice (the "Merger") with Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP ("Baker Tilly"). As a result of the Merger, HRR effectively resigned as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm and Baker Tilly, as the successor to HRR following the Merger, was engaged as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm. The Company's Audit Committee was notified of the Merger and the effective resignation of HRR and approved the engagement of Baker Tilly.

The reports of HRR on the financial statements of the Company for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2012 contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principle. In connection with its audits of the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2012 and reviews of the Company's financial statements through June 1, 2013, there were no disagreements with HRR on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of HRR, would have caused them to make reference thereto in their report on the financial statements for such years.

The Company has furnished to Baker Tilly (as successor by merger of HRR) the statements made in this Item 4.01. Attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K is Baker Tilly's letter to the Commission, dated June 1, 2013 regarding these statements.

During the two most recent fiscal years and through June 1, 2013, the Company has not consulted with Baker Tilly on any matter that (i) involved the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial statements, in each case where a written report was provided or oral advice was provided that Baker Tilly concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) was either the subject of a disagreement, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K, or a reportable event, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
