Henry Schein announces new solutions and events designed to make delivery of care more efficient

by Dental Tribune America

NEW YORK, N.Y., USA: Henry Schein Inc. has announced a range of new solutions and events to be featured during the Greater New York Dental Meeting, designed to help oral health professionals operate a more productive practice and more efficiently provide care to patients. Henry Schein’s presence at the meeting, which will be held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City from Nov. 27 to 30, includes a rich lineup of activities promoting technological advances in dentistry and insights from thought leaders.

The company also is sponsoring a special event to help underserved New York City children involved in athletics receive custom-fit protective mouthguards, as well as a social media campaign that will feature noteworthy leaders in the dental profession, including Henry Schein Chairman and CEO Stanley M. Bergman.

“At this year’s Greater New York Dental Meeting, Henry Schein is excited to offer practitioners direct access to industry thought-leaders who will discuss the future of dentistry and how to navigate change,” said Tim Sullivan, president, North American Dental Group, Henry Schein. “The meeting will also be an opportunity for Henry Schein and our partners to demonstrate how we continue to innovate by enhancing the interoperability of products and practice management software to help practitioners connect all things digital. Henry Schein is also committed to serving society, and we are pleased to host student athletes from New York City who will be receiving custom-fit mouthguards to help support their safety on the playing field.”

Announcing three new scanning partners

Henry Schein announced three new scanning partners that have become members of the Dentrix Developer Program by integrating their digital impression scanners with Henry Schein Dentrix practice management software via the Digital Dental Exchange (DDX) OS, a web-based service that enables practitioners to quickly and efficiently exchange and manage casework with a laboratory partner. Planmeca PlanScan Scanner, 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner and 3M True Definition Scanner will now have the ability to place a record of their intraoral scans into patients’ charts in the Dentrix practice management system. All three scanners will be on display at the Henry Schein Dental Booths #4225 and #4627 and each of the partner’s respective booths (Planmeca - #5428; 3Shape - #2626; 3M - #4618).

Throughout the show, Henry Schein will showcase digital technology solutions, including scanners, milling units, 3D printers, abutment solutions and the latest materials available from the company's digital platform, Henry Schein ConnectDental, to help practitioners navigate the rapidly changing world of digital dentistry.

Members of the Henry Schein Dental leadership team, along with sales representatives, will be available to answer questions and suggest customized solutions that meet the individual needs of practices.

Live events

Henry Schein will once again feature a 1,000-plus-square foot pavilion at the Crystal Palace entrance outside of the exhibition hall, where live scanning with Planmeca PlanScan Scanner, 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner and 3M True Definition Scanner will take place (a two CE credit opportunity). The scanners will be used to create custom-fit mouthguards for New York City schoolchildren, courtesy of GuardLab, a revolutionary custom mouthguard company that uses 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies to provide custom-fit mouthguards for athletes. The children, pre-identified by non-profit organizations — Right to Play and Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City — will receive mouthguards on Monday, Nov. 28, to Wednesday, Nov. 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will help enhance access to care, as part of the company's corporate social responsibility program, Henry Schein Cares, and demonstrate the effectiveness and accuracy of digital scanners for mouthguards.

The pavilion will also serve as a broadcast center, featuring #ScheinChats, a social media series available on Facebook Live that will focus on the future of dentistry and offer perspectives from the next generation of oral health professionals, nonprofits and industry-leading supplier partners.

Kicking off this series will be Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and CEO, Henry Schein, and Sohaib Soliman, president, American Student Dental Association, who will talk about the future of dentistry on Monday, Nov. 28, at 11:30 a.m. ET.
