Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC) today announced that it will host the 2nd annual Dental Service Organization (DSO) Education Forum at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 18 and 19, an example of the Company’s commitment to advancing the dental profession.

The two-day event offers three unique educational tracks designed to fit the needs of DSOs, a rich lineup of keynote speakers, including Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henry Schein Inc., and networking opportunities with DSO leaders and fellow attendees.

“Henry Schein’s support of the Forum reflects our desire to educate DSOs about the solutions they can rely on to improve the efficiency of their practice so they can improve the care of patients,” said Mr. Bergman.

Based on the size and type of DSO, attendees will be placed in one of the three educational tracks, which will cover different topics based on their organizational needs.

  • The National DSO Track – For DSOs with 30 or more locations, and a national footprint; topics include “The Globalization of DSOs” and a round-table with Mr. Bergman.
  • The Emerging DSO Track – For organizations with three or more locations; topics include “Maximizing the Value of Your Group or DSO” and “The Future of Practice Management Technology for DSOs.”
  • The DSO Hygiene Track – For DSO hygiene professionals and DSOs looking to enhance production and scalability within their hygiene department; topics include “Transforming Hygienist Procedures for Efficiency” and “Hygienists as Front-Line Educators.”

In addition to each track’s unique courses and speakers, the Forum will also offer four mainstage presentations, led by Mr. Bergman who will welcome attendees at the opening of the event. Following Mr. Bergman on the mainstage will be Jake Meadows, Vice President of Sales for Henry Schein Special Markets and Steve Bilt, Chief Executive Officer of Smile Brands, as well as motivational speaker, record-breaking athlete, journalist and author, Diana Nyad, who will deliver the Forum’s closing remarks.
