Date:3/20/2013

MELVILLE, N.Y., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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, will open the NASDAQ Stock Market in Times Square today in celebration of FDI World Dental Federation's "World Oral Health Day". Stanley M. Bergman , Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein , will be joined for the NASDAQ open by leaders of FDI and the American Dental Association (ADA),  "World Oral Health Day" global sponsors Listerine® Brand and Unilever, and other leading dental professionals to recognize the integral importance of oral health to total health.

"As the world's largest provider of dental solutions to oral health practitioners we are committed to partnering with the global dental profession to enhance oral health care around the world," said Mr. Bergman. "Through Henry Schein Cares, our global corporate social responsibility program, we are committed to participating in public-private partnerships that help to advance oral health care and other complex global health issues. We are grateful to the NASDAQ for providing us with an important platform for global visibility, as we open the stock market in celebration of "World Oral Health Day", and we are grateful to our partners for our shared commitment to achieving optimal global oral health."

The theme of FDI's World Oral Health Day 2013, "Healthy Teeth for Healthy Life," underscores the importance of oral health to overall health and well-being. Around the world, FDI member dental associations, dental industry leaders such as Henry Schein , Listerine® Brand, and Unilever, schools, and other groups will use the day as a platform for action to promote the prevention of oral disease and enhanced access to oral care for underserved communities around the world.

"We applaud the commitment of Henry Schein , as well as our global sponsors of World Oral Health Day, Listerine® Brand and Unilever, and the American Dental Association for coming together to help raise the visibility of World Oral Health Day 2013," said Dr. Orlando Monteiro da Silva , President, FDI. "Through the shared commitment and visionary leadership of these organizations and others, we look forward to achieving our goal of "Healthy Teeth for Healthy Life."

World Oral Health Day was created at the 2007 FDI Annual World Dental Congress (AWDC) in Dubai to raise awareness of the importance of healthy teeth, gums and mouths.

"Unfortunately, there is a misconception that oral disease only affects the mouth. Treating oral disease is essential for an individual's well-being. And for people with chronic conditions, reducing disease has the potential to improve their overall health," said Dr. Robert A. Faiella , President, ADA. "Our mission is to foster the success of our diverse membership and advance the oral health of the public. World Oral Health Day gives us an important opportunity to share this message of total health with the global community."

Stanley Bergman will open the NASDAQ Market at 9:30 a.m. at 4 Times Square.
