Henry Schein hosts 26th annual ‘Back to School’ programme, helping students worldwide start the school year successfully

Henry Schein UK participates and provides underserved children with backpacks, school supplies, and more back-to-school essentials

For the 26th consecutive year, Henry Schein is helping children around the world start the academic year off right through its “Back to School” programme. This programme stands as a flagship initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the Company’s global corporate social responsibility programme, and is driven by Henry Schein’s Team Schein Engagement team. Team Schein Members at 32 locations in the U.S., Canada, Spain, Italy, U.K., and Ireland, are providing nearly 5,000 students with backpacks filled with school supplies and hygiene essentials. Since the programme’s inception in 1998, the Company has helped more than 65,000 children return to the classroom equipped with necessities for a successful school year.

On August 17, Henry Schein held its first in-person “Back to School” event at its worldwide headquarters in Melville, N.Y. since 2019. Approximately 400 pre-identified children and their families received backpacks, school supplies, and gift cards to purchase their choice of first-day-of-school outfits. The event also included a BBQ, games, music, crafts, and other activities, including an interactive science presentation. Additionally, the event featured a tent with free books donated by Team Schein Members and KPMG LLP – the U.S. audit, tax, and advisory firm – through its Family for Literacy programme and partnership with nonprofit social enterprise First Book. One of several “Back to School” events being held around the world, the fun-filled evening provided participating children and families with an uplifting experience to kick off a successful school year.

“Over the past two and a half decades, Team Schein’s dedication to the ‘Back to School’ programme has only grown stronger,” said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein. “By investing in the educational journey of these exceptional children, we are strengthening the future of our communities. The resilience and potential these students possess inspires Henry Schein to continue doing our part to ensure children within our communities have equal opportunities to thrive.”

Back to School in the UK 

For this year’s programme, Henry Schein UK collaborated with three schools, providing 75 backpacks full of useful supplies to help the children most in need go back to school with renewed enthusiasm. The three schools supported by Team Schein were Bradfields Academy in Gillingham, Baden Powell Primary School in Cardiff and Springwell Leeds Academy East in Ilkley.

Bradfields Academy aims to be a leading centre of excellence in the Special Education Sector where students can thrive and fully develop their cognitive, social and emotional skills in order to take a full, active and responsible role in their local community and beyond as Global Citizens and Ambassadors for students with disabilities.*

“A huge thank you to Henry Schein for the gift of 25 filled rucksacks for a selection of our students. The comments made by the students showed how unexpected and delighted they were with the gifts, and the smiles on their faces relayed their happiness,” said Mrs Knott, Assistant Principal at Bradfields Academy. “Parents have also commented on the joy the students had at receiving them and showing them the contents when they got home. The stationery and items inside will allow students the chance to be creative and develop their literacy skills in their own time.”  

Baden Powell School at Cardiff is a fully inclusive and culturally diverse school. The 25 pupils who received the support of Team Schein this year “were so happy and were overjoyed when they opened up the bag to see all the equipment,” said Rachel Letman, Acting Deputy headteacher at the school.

Springwell Leeds is a specialist academy with the aim to provide the best possible care and education that we can for children and young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs between the ages of 5 and 16.

“Our Back to School programme at Henry Schein embodies our values of solidarity and commitment to those who are most in need.  We are proud to have partnered this year with these three devoted educational institutions to provide students with school supplies to help them return to class with joy” said Vikki Goodall, Vice President and Managing Director UK & Ireland.

Henry Schein UK participates in “Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge” to raise funds for mental health charities

On 9 September 2023, Team Schein Members from Henry Schein Dental, Henry Schein Medical, Optident, BioHorizons Camlog, and the Henry Schein One brands Software of Excellence and Dentally, came together for a charitable outdoor challenge. Their mission was to raise £7,000 in support of health charities.

These charities have had a significant impact on many of those who walked the three peaks and have relentlessly supported many other Team Schein Members and families affected by mental diseases in the country.

“Overcoming this great challenge wasn’t easy, but we knew we were doing it for great causes,” said James Salter, Corporate Social Responsibility Co-Chair, Henry Schein UK. “We are deeply thankful to everyone who contributed to our fundraising page. Those contributions will make a difference to the lives of many people affected by mental health issues and children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions.”

The Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge initiative is part of Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility programme. It stands on five pillars: empowering Team Schein to reach their potential, advancing health equity and expanding access to care for underserved communities, accelerating environmental sustainability, strengthening, and diversifying our supply chain, and maintaining strong ethical governance.

The Association of Dental Education in Europe, The European Dental Students’ Association and Henry Schein announce the winners of the “2023 Oral Health Professional Educators’ ‘Practice Green’ Awards” for Dental Schools and Societies

At the Association of Dental Education in Europe’s (ADEE) annual meeting on 25 August 2023, in Liverpool, the organisation – together with the European Dental Students’ Association (EDSA) and Henry Schein – announced the winners of the Oral Health Professional Educators’ ‘Practice Green©’ Awards, aimed to embed an ethos of sustainability within the education lifecycle for oral health professionals and within their educational and clinical practice settings. 

ADEE President, Prof Pal Barkvoll, said: “ADEE is delighted with the quality of the submissions we received for this award. The initiatives of the faculties are to be applauded and show how many opportunities there are to create awareness already in health care education and to turn initiatives into action to practice green.”

EDSA President, Martha Adam, added: “It was great to see how the students were integrated into so many initiatives of the awards and how sustainability in health care becomes more and more embedded into the undergraduate curriculum.”

Faculty Campus Initiative

The University of Liverpool, United Kingdom, received an award for its campus wide initiatives which draw together core components of sustainability into everyday campus life for staff and students. The University submission clearly demonstrated it is actively taking steps to look at its impact on climate change and wider sustainable development. Since January 2020, the University has signed an accord committing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), has developed a Sustainability Strategy, and launched a new Climate Plan setting in motion an aim to achieve net zero by 2035. With key activities encouraging reuse, repair, and circular economies, waste reduction, decarbonisation of its fuel and energy systems, sustainable travel solutions, and a wide array of educational offers for staff and students on sustainability, they are well on their journey to practice green.

Faculty Curriculum Initiative

The University of Malmö Faculty of Dentistry, Sweden, received an award for their commitment to integrating the concept of sustainability and sustainable practices within their undergraduate dental programmes to instil within students what these concepts mean and how they can practically apply such an ethos within their practice from graduation. The curriculum’s focus on prevention, use of technologies, and green products, and the encouragement of students to be agents for change was clearly demonstrated in the submission. Graduating informed students that will practice green is a clear aim of the faculty.

Faculty Procurement and Product Use Initiative

The Dundee School of Dentistry, United Kingdom, received the third award for demonstrating how local knowledge of systems and product usage combined with creativity and imagination can lead to meaningful changes in product usage, waste reduction and an embracing of a reuse, recycle philosophy that has an impact from a sustainable and financial perspective. 

A special recognition for international collaboration towards sustainability

The panel decided to honor one additional initiative with a special recognition award. Kings College London Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences, United Kingdom, and its eight partner universities within the Circle U University AllianceUniversity of Vienna (Austria), UCLouvain (Belgium), Aarhus University (Denmark), Université Paris Cité (France), Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany), Università di Pisa (Italy), University of Oslo (Norway), and University of Belgrade (Serbia) – were awarded for their international cooperation and knowledge sharing to address real change that has a sustainable impact. The collaborative project acknowledges that climate change is a global concern and as such they aim to reflect and act together on the consequences of climate change to have global impact level changes that lead to sustainable and green practices in both health care and education.

The Oral Health Professional Educators’ ‘Practice Green©’ award was named after Henry Schein’s recently launched global programme, Practice Green, designed to empower the health care community to positively impact the future of the planet by reducing the ecological footprint and promoting sustainability.

“We congratulate all winners for the amazing contribution to a more sustainable dental education and to a healthier future for all of us. I thank all faculties participating in this initiative for sharing the great initiatives they are advancing and for showcasing the important role that University Dental Schools take in helping to establish the foundation for a more sustainable dentistry”, said Andrea Albertini, CEO of Henry Schein’s International Distribution Group.

During the ADEE annual meeting, ADEE also announced that the ADEE Graduating European Dentist (GED) Core Curriculum document has recently been updated to reflect competencies in the area of sustainable practice.

BioHorizons Camlog presents new perspectives on guided bone augmentation at this year’s EAO Congress in Berlin

The company will showcase its comprehensive portfolio of biomaterials and implant systems and will offer workshops on bone regeneration and open-healing concepts in modern implant dentistry.

BioHorizons Camlog will participate in the European Association for Osseointegration (EAO) 2023 Congress, held in Berlin from September 28 to 30, 2023. According to EAO, more than 5,000 visitors from all over the world are expected at this year’s event. For the first time, it will also be possible to attend EAO programmes online, whereby all participants will be actively involved in the broadcasts and discussions.

At the BioHorizons Camlog stand H09, participants can discover the company’s broad portfolio of innovative and holistic regenerative solutions in biomaterials and implant systems. BioHorizons Camlog has established itself as one of the leading suppliers of premium dental implant systems, restorative components, a comprehensive line of biologics products and digital solutions which helps dentists to provide patients with the optimum treatment.

BioHorizons Camlog will also host two workshops at EAO.

On Friday, September 29, 2023, Prof. Daniel Rothamel (Germany) will speak on allogeneic bone substitute materials for bone regeneration in his workshop. He will demonstrate fundamentals and techniques of hard tissue augmentation with allografts based on patient cases and hands-on exercises. The practical exercises on the model include the application of allogeneic materials in particulate form, block augmentation, and the shell technique.

Later that day, Dr. Robert Oretti (United Kingdom) will present the concept of open healing and demonstrate options for its application in modern implant dentistry. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn to choose between the different treatment options, focusing on the steps to achieve passive closure over the bone graft without compromising the muco-gingival line.

Between the two workshops, Prof. Rothamel and Dr. Oretti will provide insight into allogeneic bone substitute materials in an industry forum, as there is growing evidence that allogeneic grafts may be a safe alternative to autologous grafts in implant therapy. In this forum, they will be presenting new data and therapeutic concepts on allografts, indicating the potential clinical relevance of these materials in implant dentistry.
