The focus of Henry Schein Dental has been to help its dental professional clients get through the trying times and then return to work successfully, explains Stan Bergman, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Henry Schein Dental.
The company has created a program called Thrive Practice Recovery Program, Bergman explains in this discussion with Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz. It contains a number of initiatives that will help practitioners ensure that safety is in place in their practices, help patients feel safe when they are invited back to receive oral care.
How is the company helping dentists remain positive? One way is to help them share with their patients the importance of oral care. While this may sound like something everyone should know, Henry Schein realizes patients need the reminder, so they guide practitioners about how to effectively spread oral-systemic information.
