Henry Schein Inc. Donates Equipment to ADA Community Dental Health Coordinator Pilot Program
Date:10/8/2010

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Dental Association (ADA) has announced that Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), the largest provider of health care products and services to office-based practitioners, will donate dental equipment valued at $860,000 to students in the Community Dental Health Coordinator (CDHC) pilot program. Students will use the equipment initially for hands-on clinical training in the program, which will produce new members of the dental team to help provide oral health care to people living in underserved communities. After training, the equipment will be used to provide services to patients.  Henry Schein's donation is part of Henry Schein Cares, the company's global corporate social responsibility program which seeks to enhance access to health care for underserved populations around the world.  

CDHC students come from the same communities in which they will work -- communities whose residents have little to no access to dental care. They will provide oral health guidance and specific clinical dental services such as dental screenings and fluoride treatments under the supervision of a dentist and in accordance with existing state laws. CDHCs will provide services in remote rural areas, urban areas and Native American communities, thus helping to eliminate the cultural, language and sociological barriers that might otherwise impede their effectiveness. CDHCs will also help connect patients to dentists who can provide treatment. The CDHC curriculum includes 12 months of online course work and in-person clinical training as well as a six-month internship.

"Henry Schein's support for the CDHC pilot project demonstrates the company's total commitment to helping more Americans attain and maintain good oral health," said ADA President Ronald L. Tankersley, D.D.S. "We are gratified that Henry Schein shares our hope t
