  Posted by: Dental Design      27th May 2020

Henry Schein Dental UK has compiled a variety of measures that focus on the critical steps necessary to help dentists safely restart their practice and to ensure the health and wellness of patients and the dental team. The practice recovery programme aims to help dental teams prepare for the resumption of practice and offers a curated set of solutions ranging from practice safety and preparation, new protocol implementation, and patient communications.

In addition to the company’s comprehensive solutions portfolio, Henry Schein has created a checklist for how to plan your business bounce back, which can be found on the Henry Schein website. There is also a Covid-19 Resource and Education Centre that provides access to practical information as well as helpful webinars.

“At Henry Schein we are committed to helping our customers emerge strong from this difficult situation. We are here to help in fulfillment of our brand promise: Rely on Us. Our team is dedicated to working with dental practitioners to help establish a re-opening process and provide access to a wide range of products, services, and solutions to run an efficient practice while delivering quality patient”, said Patrick Allen, Managing Director of Henry Schein in the UK.

A key solutions offered as part of the new programme is the recently launched teledentistry offering, designed by MedPod, Inc. This clinical decision tool allows dentists to provide critical patient communication and monitoring as the COVID-19 outbreak continues. The cloud-based software platform gives providers the ability to conduct remote consultations for patients so that they can continue to operate their practice, while delivering virtual care to patients who may not have access to a physical office visit, or choose not to visit a clinical setting as a safety precaution.

Software of Excellence, a Henry Schein One brand, has created a new online event called the ‘Bounceback Virtual Dental Festival’ to be held on 26 – 27 May 2020. Currently, more than 2,500 dental professionals have registered the two-day event packed full of useful advice, information, and online networking, delivered by experts from across the industry, helping create a community through which dentists and practice owners can access ‘real-life’, practical support. Henry Schein Dental as well as the Henry Schein, Inc. affiliate MediHoldings will support the event. Proposed topics will include the adjustment to the ‘new normal’, managing teams and HR challenges, how to financially survive the pandemic, the importance of patient communication, making your practice a safer place, self and team empowerment, and implementing contactless arrivals and departures. Software of Excellence also offers regular COVID-19 related webinars to support dental customers on business related topics.
