Henry Schein, Sirona donate supplies to Peru clinic

Henry Schein Cares, the global social responsibility program of Henry Schein, and Sirona Dental Systems donated equipment and oral healthcare supplies to support the operation of the new Diospi Suyana Hospital Dental Clinic in the Apurimac region of Peru.

Henry Schein and Sirona are two of the largest donors to the nonprofit dental clinic, the companies said in a press release.

The new dental clinic, which includes five consultation rooms, an x-ray room, and a laboratory, will serve as many as 1,000 patients per month. The dental clinic is part of the Diospi Suyana Hospital, which has been completely funded by donations, allowing patients to pay only what they can afford, often in the form of barter.

The opening of the dental clinic was celebrated at a special ceremony on June 26, which was attended by more than 3,000 people, including the first lady of Peru, Pilar Nores de Garcia, and many other global dignitaries.
