DentalEZ® Group, Henry Schein And The Oral Cancer Foundation Provide Free Oral Cancer Screenings At 2013 Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting

Stocks in this article: HSIC

MALVERN, Pa. , Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DentalEZ ® Group, a supplier of innovative products and services for dental health professionals worldwide, has teamed up with Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to dental, medical and animal health practitioners, and the Oral Cancer Foundation in order to provide free oral cancer screenings at this year's Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting.  

The screenings will take place on Thursday, February 21, and Friday, February 22, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.; and on Saturday, February 23, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Henry Schein's Total Health booth # 2321 located on the main exhibit floor.   Volunteers from the Oral Cancer Foundation will administer the screenings using the Identafi ® oral cancer screening device, a product of the DentalEZ Group's StarDental ® division.

Since being selected as the exclusive global distributor of the Identafi in late 2012, Henry Schein has made the Identafi a core component of its Total Health Beyond The Mouth initiative.   The Total Health Beyond the Mouth program is an integrated wellness and education program that informs patients of the integral link between oral health and total health, and assists dental professionals in uncovering potential systemic health problems, including periodontal disease, oral cancer, sleep disorders, heart disease, and diabetes.

"We are pleased with the active role that both Henry Schein and the Oral Cancer Foundation have assumed to advocate for the early screening of oral cancer," remarked Rick Gross, Senior Product Manager for StarDental.   "By working together on initiatives such as this, we can advance this important public health issue and communicate the exceptional benefits of our system.   And what better location to further remind and educate dental professionals about the importance of early detection than at the Chicago Dental Society's Midwinter Dental Meeting."

Identafi is an oral cancer screening device used for the detection of oral pathologies, including biochemical and morphological changes in the cells of the mouth, throat, tongue, and tonsils that may lead to oral cancer.   The small, cordless, handheld device uses an innovative 3-wavelength optical illumination and visualization system that allows dental professionals to identify oral mucosal abnormalities not visible to the naked eye.

To receive your free oral cancer screening, please visit booth #2321 at this year's Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting.
