Henry Schein to offer free medical, dental services

Henry Schein will provide free medical and dental services to more than 5,000 children and their caregivers in five U.S. cities this summer and fall through the company's Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities program.

The program promotes access to healthcare, prevention, and wellness for underserved communities by providing free medical and dental screenings at events around the country, according to the company.

This year's events will take place in Birmingham, AL; Miami; Bridgeport, CT; Orangeburg, SC; and Meridian, MS. As a part of Henry Schein's sponsorship of National Health Center Week, the company is also supporting health screening events in Reno, NV; Yakima, WA; and Uvalde, TX.

At each event, local physicians, nurses, dentists, and community volunteers screen for five diseases and associated risk factors that commonly affect children: hypertension, asthma, diabetes, obesity, and poor oral health. In addition, participating children and their caregivers receive educational materials about ways to prevent and treat these problems, as well as assistance in finding a local community health center where they may receive healthcare on a regular basis.
