Henry Schein supports OSAP campaign

April 25, 2013
Campaign to develop patient safety education.

ANNAPOLIS, Maryland--In partnership with Henry Schein Dental, the U.S. dental business of Henry Schein, the Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention has extended its patient safety campaign.

Henry Schein will include a special section within the company's May 2013 sales flyer where participating companies will feature selected infection control products. As a social responsibility campaign, 5% of proceeds will go toward developing next generation educational resources.

The campaign is designed to increase OSAP’s visibility throughout the dental profession and to call attention to key infection control brands. Henry Schein and 14 leading infection control manufacturing companies, all OSAP corporate members, will participate in this campaign through May 24, 2013. The campaign will be identified by the OSAP green band in the header and footer on pages 40-45 of the flyer.

“It is very generous of Henry Schein to garner support for OSAP to develop ground breaking new tools like its iconic 'If Saliva Were Red' video,” said Therese Long, OSAP executive director.

"We thank Henry Schein and the participating companies for their commitment to OSAP’s advocacy for the safe and infection-free delivery of oral health care. We hope all our members including clinicians, educators, consultants, policy makers, and companies will help get the word out to encourage everyone to support this important campaign. There is still much work to do in education about infection prevention and safety.”

Henry Schein will mail flyers to customers and make it available online as well.
