The NYU College of Dentistry celebrated the opening of the “Henry Schein Cares” Wing on June 2, 2010, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour of the new clinical facility.

Housed on the second floor of the NYU College of Dentistry, the “Henry Schein Cares” Wing includes 56 dental chairs for the care of patients in the community. Henry Schein donated equipment, technology, and healthcare supplies valued at more than $2 million to support the NYU College of Dentistry through Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global social responsibility program.

“Henry Schein Cares is deeply privileged to contribute to the training and education of our nation’s future oral healthcare professionals and support their service to the oral healthcare needs of the public through the ‘Henry Schein Cares’ Wing of the NYU College of Dentistry, and we are grateful for the generosity of our supplier partners who have joined us in this effort,” said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Henry Schein. “Our strategic partnership with NYU underscores our commitment to supporting healthcare education, a key pillar of our global social responsibility program, Henry Schein Cares, and we look forward to working together to ‘help health happen’ for many years to come.

The opening of the “Henry Schein Cares” Wing builds on a two-decade long strategic partnership between Henry Schein and the NYU College of Dentistry. In addition to the opening of the “Henry Schein Cares” Wing, Henry Schein Cares and the NYU College of Dentistry recently announced a five-year sponsorship of the dental school’s international outreach program—the NYU College of Dentistry- Henry Schein Cares Global Dental Student Outreach Program.

“Henry Schein and NYU share a deep commitment to advancing excellent, comprehensive oral health
care while supporting the training and development of future oral healthcare professionals who not only
have an impact on their profession, but on society as a whole,” said NYU College of Dentistry Dean
Charles N. Bertolami.

“NYU’s partnership with Henry Schein furthers our ability to provide quality, affordable oral health care
to members of our community while offering our students an extraordinary education.”
