Henry Schein has reported higher net income and dental sales for its fiscal first quarter of 2017.
For the quarter (end-April 1), the company reported net income of $140.7 million, an increase of 23.7% compared with the same quarter of 2016. The first quarter of 2016 included pretax restructuring costs of $4.1 million, the company noted.
