NYU College of Dentistry, Henry Schein Cares, Global Student Outreach ProgramHenry Schein and the New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry have announced a five-year sponsorship of the dental school’s national and international outreach programs—the NYU College of Dentistry Henry Schein Cares Global Student Outreach Program. Through the sponsorship, Henry Schein provides dental supplies to be used for each individual program throughout the year.
In 2010, the six geographic areas targeted for outreach include the tri-island nation of Grenada; Hudson, New York; Chiquilistagua, Nicaragua; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Fort Yukon, Alaska; with a program to be initiated in Machias, Maine in the fall. For each targeted area, the program assesses the oral health needs of the at-risk population and determines the type of oral health system that could be implemented on a sustainable basis with a particular focus on completing the care of pediatric patients. In addition to oral healthcare education, the program provides emergency dental services for adults and complete, comprehensive care for the pediatric population, including oral health screenings, fluoride varnish applications, sealants, restorative treatments, root canal therapy, and extractions. In many cases, there is also an opportunity to identify and train local members of the community to help extend oral health education and prevention on an ongoing basis.
