Henry Schein Dental, the global dental business of Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world’s largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, has announced the launch of Henry Schein Dental Surgical Solutions. The group will specialize in providing a comprehensive package of specialty products and services, as well as innovative and personalized business solutions, to oral and maxillofacial surgeons and periodontists.

Henry Schein Dental created a dedicated sales team to help oral and maxillofacial surgeons and periodontists bring their practices to higher levels of clinical and business success by serving as a full-service resource for all practice needs, enabling specialists to simplify their point of purchase.

“The Henry Schein Dental Surgical Solutions team understands the demands of a dental surgical practice and is trained to address surgical specialists’ unique needs,” said Maritza Alford, National Director of Sales, Henry Schein Dental Surgical Solutions. “We have a robust portfolio of products that an oral surgery or periodontal practice needs to maintain and grow its business, and our team is focused on supporting surgical specialists, such as oral surgeons and periodontists.”

Surgical specialists will be able to purchase all their products from field sales representatives, called Surgical Solutions Consultants (SSC). The Surgical Solutions Consultants are experienced in surgery and implant dentistry and have an in-depth understanding of surgical procedures and a referral-based practice. In addition to supporting the full scope of a surgical practice, Henry Schein Dental Surgical Solutions empowers specialists with innovative and personalized business solutions that make a measurable difference for the specialist and their referrals.
