MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC) launched today the Henry Schein Thrive Practice Recovery Program, a single, cost-effective suite of solutions to help dentists prepare for the re-opening of their practices, reconnect with patients, and access a wide range of financial services. The new program will help dental professionals in the United States contending with the COVID-19 pandemic more quickly return to providing care.
“We are dedicated to doing all we can to ensure that our customers emerge strong from this difficult situation,” said Jonathan Koch, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein’s Global Dental Group, and Interim Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein One. “As a trusted advisor to dental professionals, we are here to help, and that’s why we created the Henry Schein Thrive Practice Recovery Program – to provide the solutions our customers need to get back to doing what they do best: safeguarding the oral health, and overall health, of their patients.”
The Henry Schein Thrive Practice Recovery Program is focused on the critical steps necessary to help dentists safely restart their practice, including ensuring the health and wellness of patients and the dental team. The Program offers a three-phase approach to guide practice readiness and a curated set of solutions ranging from practice safety and preparation, new protocol implementation, patient communications, and financial assistance, among other options. The Program is available with all payments deferred for 90 days and the option to renew some program components after the three-month program ends. In addition, many solutions offered as part of the Program are available to purchase separately.
“We take seriously the promise we make to our customers – Rely on Us – and that promise is especially meaningful in challenging times,” said Mr. Koch. “Team Schein is pleased to work with dental practitioners to help establish a re-opening process that includes education and training resources as well as access to a wide range of products, services, and solutions.”
