SNAP-ON SMILE AND HENRY SCHEIN ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP

 

Snap-On Smile, the award-winning innovative dental products company focused on developing and manufacturing new products that improve patients’ lives, today announced a partnership with Henry Schein, Inc. the largest provider of healthcare products and services to office-based practitioners in the combined North American and European markets, for the distribution of the Snap-On Smile® dental restorative appliance, an exciting new non-invasive, low cost treatment for patients. 

“We entered this partnership to significantly increase our distribution and sales capabilities in the U.S. and Canadian markets,” said Adam Cotumaccio, President and CEO of Snap-On Smile. “Establishing relationships and working with best-in-class partners such as Henry Schein is a critical step to creating broader acceptance of our products in the dental community.”  

 

In addition to the exclusive distribution of the appliance, Henry Schein will exclusively distribute the Snap-On Smileâ Practice Development Kit.  This innovative collection of educational resources, patient marketing materials and adjustment and finishing tools will make it easy for dentists to quickly begin offering Snap-On Smile to their patients.

 

“We are committed to providing our dental customers with the widest possible range of innovative products and services for helping to grow their practice and deliver quality care,  and our partnership with Snap-On Smile certainly advances this goal,” said Tim Sullivan, President of Henry Schein Dental. “The Snap-On Smile® appliance is a unique and affordable solution for many patients, including those who may be fearful of dental procedures, and we believe that our exclusive offering of this product and Practice Development Kit will be received enthusiastically by our customers.”

 

The Snap-On Smile® appliance was developed by Dr. Marc Liechtung, a cosmetic and restorative dentist for 20 years and the owner of a New York City dental practice.
