Henry Schein’s Practice Pink Programme supports Cancer Research UK’s fight against Cancer

Henry Schein Dental UK continues to support the fight against cancer through its Practice Pink programme. By donating a percentage of the company’s sales in October from selected pink products to Cancer Research UK, Henry Schein supports CRUK’s work in research, prevention efforts, early detection of the disease, and improving access to care.

Cancer Research UK wants the survival rate of cancer patients in the UK to be among the best in the world. The organisation focuses their efforts in four key areas – working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective. The organisation’s work is funded solely by donations.

“In close cooperation with our customers and supplier partners, Henry Schein has been able to considerably contribute to the fight against cancer around the globe. As cancer affects us all in the one or other way, we are happy that through Practice Pink and as a team, we come again closer to achieve our shared goal of a cancer-free world,” said Patrick Allen, Managing Director, Henry Schein UK, Ireland, the Nordics and South Africa.

Customers can support the initiative by purchasing a selection of pink products from a comprehensive range of high-quality Henry Schein brand products that meet the company’s high standards to earn the Henry Schein Seal of Excellence and come with a satisfaction-or-money-back guarantee.

Practice Pink is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the Company’s global corporate social responsibility programme which has been running for 14 consecutive years. Henry Schein Cares stands on four pillars: engaging Team Schein Members to reach their potential, ensuring accountability by extending ethical business practices to all levels within Henry Schein, promoting environmental sustainability, and expanding access to health care for underserved and at-risk communities around the world.

Along with non-governmental organisations and supplier partners across North America and Europe, Henry Schein is helping dental and medical health care professionals raise awareness and support for a cure for breast cancer and other cancers by offering its customers a range of ‘pink’ products.

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in late 2019, the PSCN has taken an active role in developing critical tools to strengthen the supply chain, including advocacy, procurement, and product recommendations. Henry Schein’s long-term leadership in the PSCN enabled the Company to deploy insights in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, specifically advocating for and disseminating guidelines for proper usage of personal protective equipment (PPE) to promoting the judicious use of PPE. The Company’s collaboration with its PSCN partners reinforces Henry Schein’s commitment to public-private partnerships as a means of addressing complex societal issues.

Software of Excellence, a Henry Schein One brand, has created a new online event called the ‘Bounceback Virtual Dental Festival’ to be held on 26 – 27 May 2020. Currently, more than 2,500 dental professionals have registered the two-day event packed full of useful advice, information, and online networking, delivered by experts from across the industry, helping create a community through which dentists and practice owners can access ‘real-life’, practical support.

Henry Schein Dental helps dental professionals expand access to care with telehealth offerings

Henry Schein Dental UK has announced the expansion of the company’s service portfolio with the addition of a teledentistry offering, developed by Medpod Inc. Medpod is an expert in digital health and a trusted health care solutions partner with extensive clinical research and medical technology expertise.

The new offering is a clinical decision tool that allows dentists to provide critical patient communication and monitoring as the Covid-19 outbreak continues. The cloud-based software platform gives providers the ability to conduct remote consultations for patients so that they can continue to operate their practice, while delivering virtual care to patients who may not have access to a physical office visit, or choose not to visit a clinical setting as a safety precaution.

“Oral health and overall health are closely connected, and we want to ensure that patients’ oral care is not neglected during this global pandemic and have therefore expanded our solutions offerings to teledentistry,” said Patrick Allen, Managing Director of Henry Schein Dental UK. “As we continue to practice social distancing to slow the spread of the coronavirus disease, access to remote patient care is critically important.

This new offering reinforces our commitment to deliver the solutions our dental customers rely on.”

With Medpod’s cloud-based software enabling teledentistry, dental practices can offer remote consultations, triage dental emergencies and any further investigations to be performed in person, and ensure post-procedure follow-up via a web-based platform on any smartphone, tablet, or computer. This also allows dentists to determine the patient’s level of discomfort, prioritise cases, and makes it easy for patients to access their dentist in a more effective way than a phone call. For dental practitioners, Medpod’s software offers live, two-way video communication, and integrates live-streaming of HD audio/video, and a highly flexible user interface into one easy-to-use, care delivery and patient management system.

Henry Schein Orthodontics presents fourth Annual European Carriere Symposium in Paris

Henry Schein Orthodontics, the orthodontics business of Henry Schein, Inc., has announced its fourth Annual European Carriere Symposium that will take place from 20-22 September 2018 in Paris, France, at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile Hotel.

The symposium will focus on the latest technologies and evidence-based treatment protocols to achieve an entirely new level of orthodontic excellence. Attendees will have the chance to learn about new and innovative concepts and tools that make a total-health difference in the lives of patients. From the ground-breaking SAGITTAL FIRST Philosophy to the new Carriere SLX 3D Complete Bracket System and Carriere MOTION 3D Appliances, renowned speakers will present innovative concepts to help diagnose and establish treatment plans. They will share proven strategies that increase clinical efficiency, shorten treatment time, and help achieve extraordinary long-term results.

The keynote speakers and inventor of the Carriere Philosophy, Dr. Luis Carrière, will focus on evidence-based clinical solutions for the treatment of complex class II and III cases.

“Innovations in our profession are ranging from equipment and new tools to treatment concepts that positively impact every aspect of how we achieve consistently, clinical excellence while enhancing the patient experience,” said Dr. Carrière. “Therefore, it is crucial to be open to new concepts, embrace innovations that deliver dental, facial and total health results that exceed patients’ expectations. With a simple, bonded biomimetic device such as MOTION 3D Appliances, for instance, utilising the SAGITTAL FIRST Philosophy orthodontists can reposition the mandible, expand the airway and balance the relationship between the nose, upper and lower lips and chin for enhancing facial harmony – either for Class II or Class III cases. This results in a non-invasive approach to face and health-driven orthodontics that greatly reduces extractions and surgery and thus the need for interdisciplinary therapy for the good of patients. I am convinced that orthodontists play a social importance in people’s lives.”

Dr. Luis Carrière will be supported by the programme chairman, Dr. Dave Paquette, who is also Henry Schein Orthodontics’ lead clinical advisor and presenter of “The Evolution of Self-Litigation”, and featured speaker Dr. John Graham, who will talk about how “SAGITTAL FIRST will transform today’s orthodontic practice”, along with an impressive line-up of world-renowned speakers.

Additional speakers and topics include:

  • Dr. Ana Maria Cantor (Spain) Simplification of Class II and Class III Corrections Treatment Protocol
  • Dr. Peri Colino (Spain): CBCT in Orthodontics: Advance 3D Solutions
  • Dr. Francesco Garino (Italy): Aligner therapy simplified: Fewer trays, less time, better results.
  • Dr. Antonio Guiducci (Italy): SAGITTAL FIRSTTM with passive self-ligation: Transforming today’s orthodontic practice.
  • Dr. Glenn Krieger (USA): Increased case acceptance, amazing clinical images, and lower stress.
  • Dr. Jep Paschal (USA): SAGITTAL FIRSTTM treatment approach explained.
  • Dr. Olivier Setmon (France): The benefits of achieving a Class I platform in mixed dentition.
  • Dr. Norihid Tsubura (Japan): Shifting the way we approach complex cases, by turning them into simple cases.

The presentations will be held in English and Spanish and simultaneously translated into French. Breakout sessions will be offered in French, Spanish and English. A breakout session will be dedicated for hands-on exercises.

At the symposium’s exhibition area, a broad spectrum of the latest innovations and new clinical solutions will be showcased, focusing on the integrated processes of the digital orthodontics workflow, including intraoral scanning, digital imaging, clinical orthodontic planning, and 3D printing.

In addition, networking will be available to allow orthodontists the opportunity to share their experiences with other peer professionals from around the world.

As in prior years, the event is expected to sell-out, bringing together leading orthodontic speakers and forward-thinking attendees in a powerful learning environment. To register, visit www.carrieresymposium.com
