More than 3,000 people in four different countries – 2,049 children and 1,076 adults – received free dental care during the 2018-2019 school year, thanks to the NYU Dentistry/Henry Schein Cares Global Student Outreach Program. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the collaboration between NYU College of Dentistry (NYU Dentistry) and Henry Schein Cares, the global corporate social responsibility program of Henry Schein, Inc.

NYU Dentistry’s outreach program provides free dental services to populations facing barriers to oral health, including a lack of local dental providers, economic hardship, and inadequate health insurance coverage. Traveling to communities in interdisciplinary teams of general dentists and dental specialists, NYU Dentistry students receive hands-on clinical instruction and are exposed to public health issues under the guidance of faculty, alumni, local partners, and community leaders.
