MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners, was honored by the Hispanic Dental Association (HDA), National Dental Association (NDA) and Society of American Indian Dentists (SAID) at the Multi-Cultural Oral Health Summit held recently in Boca Raton, Fla.  Mr. Bergman received an award recognizing Henry Schein's long-term commitment to meeting the needs of a diverse population to improve oral health.   

The first joint conference of these three national culturally-specific dental associations, the Multi-Cultural Oral Health Summit brought together dentists, dental students, dental assistants and hygienists from around the country.

"Henry Schein has been proud to partner with the HDA, NDA, SAID and other diverse associations in advancing access to care for the underserved, recruiting more members from diverse communities into the dental profession, increasing professional cultural competency, and ensuring the higher visibility of culturally-specific dental professional groups in the national discussion about dental care," said Mr. Bergman.  "It is a great honor to accept this wonderful award, and all of us at Henry Schein look forward to continuing to be a steadfast partner in achieving our shared goals."

Henry Schein is actively engaged in supporting organizations and initiatives that advance diversity representation and cultural competency throughout the dental community. Henry Schein has been a long-time supporter of the NDA, HDA and SAID, and proudly sponsored the inaugural Multi-Cultural Oral Health Summit.  The Company helped to create the NDA's Leadership Training and Speaker Development program 17 years ago and was a founding sponsor of the American Dental Association's Diversity Leadership Program for more than a decade.  In addition, Henry Schein sponsored the first Dental Diversity Leadership Conference in New York in 2001 and created the REACH national outreach program to help facilitate the growth of culturally-specific health care professional organizations.

"Stan Bergman's commitment to social responsibility is genuine and pervasive. He is an extraordinary leader who inspires the highest levels of performance from all he encounters.  Stan Bergman's goals and visions are inextricably intertwined with the mission of the NDA-elevating the health of vulnerable and underserved communities of color," said Robert S. Johns, Executive Director, NDA.  "For nearly two decades, the NDA has benefitted not only from Henry Schein's financial support, but also from the company's commitment to building a long term, strategic partnership that is grounded in mutual respect. We are proud to honor Stanley Bergman for his commitment to achieving health equity for communities of color."
