MELVILLE, N.Y., U.S.: Henry Schein recently announced that it has entered into a new partnership agreement with the International College of Dentists (ICD) to become the exclusive partner for the organization’s centennial anniversary celebrations in 2020. Henry Schein also extended its support for the ICD Global Visionary Fund (GVF).

Through Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility program, Henry Schein will partner with the ICD to recognize the contributions of its members and extend the global reach of both organizations to carry out and administer educational, training and humanitarian initiatives. The new agreement also extends Henry Schein’s four-year commitment to the GVF, a charitable fund that was created in 2013 with the aim of improving the oral health of the public and enhancing the profession of dentistry.

“We are pleased to join with the International College of Dentists to remember its past, celebrate its future, and honor the professional achievements, service, and dedication of all college members and fellows,” said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Henry Schein. “Over the past ten years, the relationship between ICD and Team Schein has grown ever stronger. Together, we recognize the important link between oral health and overall health and share a commitment to expanding access to health care for underserved communities around the world.”

The ICD has been honoring the world’s leading dentists since 1920, and to commemorate its centennial, it is organizing a series of special events under the theme “Celebrating the first 100 years.” The program will take place throughout 2020, leading up to a gala celebration to be held during the ICD 2020 International Council meeting in November 2020 in Japan.

“This will be a remarkable global effort on the part of both the leadership of the college and our fellows who will work together for an amazing year of celebration, camaraderie, and fellowship,” said Dr. Dov Sydney, General Chair of the College Centennial Committee, as well as International Editor and Director of Communications at the ICD. “We thank Henry Schein for its ongoing partnership, which is especially gratifying as we share a mutual commitment to contribute to the advancement of the profession of dentistry by fostering the growth and diffusion of dental knowledge worldwide.”
