Corporate Partner Spotlight

A Relationship That Scheins 

Dental Hygiene 3

Since 2014, Farmingdale State College’s Dental Hygiene Department has been working with Henry Schein to ensure our faculty, staff and students have the products and support to continue to make a difference in patient care. In addition to being our Long Island neighbor, Henry Schein, the global health solutions company, is a trusted ally with whom we partner closely to effect impactful change for our community, and beyond.

Most recently, over the course of three years, Henry Schein has donated more than $325,000 in cash and products through its corporate social responsibility program, Henry Schein Cares. These essential products - including 3D printers, hand instruments, teeth whitening units, caries detection units, and more – help build capacity and skillsets for the next generation of health care professionals and enable the provision of care for underserved patient populations at the Dental Hygiene Care Center.

“The Dental Hygiene Department at Farmingdale State College is fortunate and grateful for the philanthropic efforts of Henry Schein Cares,” Dr. Lynn Marsh RDH, Dental Hygiene Department Chair & Professor. “The team’s support has been greatly influential in our dental hygiene students providing the gold standard in preventive oral health care.”

Dental Hygiene 4In addition to the Company’s philanthropic support, the people at the heart of Team Schein are always here for us. From its sales and equipment representatives, to its leadership team, the organization truly cares about and engages with its partners. Since the beginning of our relationship, Maureen Knott (Class of 1984), Vice President, Omnichannel Marketing, Henry Schein Dental, has served as a Foundation Board Member for the College, serves as the Second Vice President on the Executive Board and is a member of the Curriculum Advisory Committee for the Dental 

Hygiene Department. She has been key to helping ensure our needs are met, and our interests and insights are shared among her industry peers.

Henry Schein has also supported the financial needs of our students. Each year, the Company offers $4,000 in hygiene scholarships to select students. These funds help support the academic careers of our students, and dentistry’s future leaders.

“Henry Schein continues to be a model corporate citizen and an ideal business partner,” Dr. John S. Nader, President, Farmingdale State College. “Through their generosity and support we have been able to further strengthen our nationally recognized Dental Hygiene program.”
