Capacity Building

Strengthening organizations that provide health care is one of the most important ways we can help to develop the infrastructure and personnel needs for delivering high-quality health care.

We collaborate with community clinics in underserved areas to improve facilities, equipment, and technology. We also support cutting-edge clinical and research-oriented academic centers and institutions to enhance learning opportunities for the next generation of dental and medical professionals.

Program Highlights:

  • Our Global Student Outreach Program supports dental students and faculty who embark on oral health care outreach missions to underserved regions in the U.S. and around the world. The program provides care to people in need, while helping the next generation of oral health providers understand public health needs and the value of serving vulnerable populations.
  • We donate Dentrix practice management software to qualified educational and charitable organizations in the U.S. and Canada.

  • Henry Schein is a founding member of The Arnold P. Gold Foundation's Gold Corporate Council, formed in 2017, to help further the foundation's mission of supporting and elevating the human connection in health care.
