Henry Schein CEO honored for promoting diversity in dentistry

Stanley Bergman, Henry Schein's CEO and board chairman, was honored for his leadership advancing diversity and inclusion in dentistry during this week's 2019 Greater New York Dental Meeting, according to a Dec. 3 news release.

Mr. Bergman received a Presidential Citation from Chad Gehani, DDS, president of the American Dental Association, along with a special recognition award from Lauro Medrano, DDS, GNYDM's general chairman.

"I am honored to accept these awards on behalf of Team Schein and the countless colleagues in the dental industry who have been strong allies in fostering an environment in which diversity and inclusion are woven into the fabric of the dental profession and our industry," Mr. Bergman said in the news release. "As a result, we have seen the profession expand to more fully reflect the ever-growing diversity of our country, to strengthen the practitioner-patient relationship and to improve public health."

Henry Schein's Women's Leadership Network, along with several other industry partners, hosted the Women Dentists Leadership Conference during the GNYDM. The program featured women leaders from dentistry with the goal of empowering and mentoring current and future women dentists.

Henry Schein supports many outreach missions within the U.S. and abroad. The company was also one of four founding corporate sponsors of the ADA's Diversity in Leadership Institute.
