During Farmingdale State College’s Department of Dental Hygiene 2015 pinning and awards ceremony, Henry Schein, Inc. granted five dental hygiene students with a $500 Henry Schein Academic Scholarship Award.
Maureen Knott, vice president of product advertising and marketing for Henry Schein, presented the students with the awards — three of which went to students earning their associate’s degree and two to students earning their bachelor’s degree.
“As we all know, a highly-skilled dental hygienist can be an integral part of a successful dental practice,” said Knott said. “Henry Schein is committed to supporting dental hygienists as they help each and every one of their patients maintain a beautiful smile and their oral and overall health.”
Knott is a member of Farmingdale College Foundation’s board of directors. In this role, she helps support the foundation’s efforts to raise awareness of the important role of the dental hygienist. Locally, Henry Schein also works closely with the New York University College of Dentistry’s’ dental hygiene program and the dental assisting program at Stony Brook University’s School of Dental Medicine.
