MELVILLE, N.Y. – Henry Schein Canada, the Canadian division of Henry Schein, Inc., the largest distributor of health care products and services to office-based practitioners, hosted its 2011 Dental National Sales Meeting at Toronto’s Westin Harbour Castle Hotel last month. More than 250 of the company’s Canadian field sales consultants (FSCs) and equipment sales specialists (ESSs), senior management from Canada and the United States, and supplier partners joined to discuss strategies to maintain and enhance the company’s position as the industry leader in the dental market.

Throughout the event, attendees shared insights on new market opportunities and learned about the many exciting initiatives planned for the future.

“Our dental national sales meeting is a valuable opportunity for Henry Schein Canada to explore ways to enhance our partnerships with our supplier partners and to approach new opportunities with a shared vision,” said Cy Elborne, President of Henry Schein Canada, who opened the meeting. “This is a great setting for us to learn from our supplier partners and form a consensus on how to best work together to meet the needs of our customers.”

With the theme “Schein’s Got Talent,” the meeting included awards presentations to FSCs, ESSs, and supplier representatives; special dinners to recognize high achievers; presentations from senior Henry Schein leaders and supplier partners; and a supplier partner exhibit area. Suppliers from more than 40 partner companies participated in the meeting, providing an opportunity for Henry Schein Canada FSCs and ESSs to learn about new products, programs, and initiatives first hand.

Henry Schein chairman and CEO Stanley Bergman concluded the meeting with a presentation that highlighted the company’s global success and how it is “helping health happen” among its five constituencies – customers, suppliers, Team Schein, investors, and society. When discussing Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility program, Mr. Bergman announced that once again, Henry Schein has been ranked first in its industry for corporate social responsibility, and also led the industry in the category of global competitiveness in Fortune’s 2011 list of the World’s Most Admired Companies.
