MELVILLE, N.Y. -- Henry Schein, Inc., the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health, and medical practitioners, is encouraging health care practitioners to celebrate Freedom Day USA, a national Thank You Movement for active duty U.S. military personnel, their immediate family members, and veterans. Freedom Day USA will take place this year on September 10.
Led by the dental industry, hundreds of dental practices, and more than 1,000 other health care providers and businesses across the United States have participated in Freedom Day USA. Henry Schein is supporting Freedom Day USA by including information about the celebration in its marketing materials that reach tens of thousands of Henry Schein customers throughout the country.
"The courageous men and women of our Armed Forces and their families have made great personal sacrifices in service to our nation's security domestically and abroad," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein. "The dental community has a long history of banding together to 'Help Health Happen,' so it is very fitting that this caring community would lead an effort to provide our selfless heroes with oral care at no cost on this special day of honor. Henry Schein is proud to support Freedom Day and we encourage all health care practitioners and other businesses to participate."
Freedom Day USA, held on the second Thursday of each September, was founded in 2013 by Dr. Robert Martino, owner of Wilson Martino Dental, and was further developed by the members of The Platinum Circle Fortune Management Group, a group of elite health care professionals, including dentists, who practice throughout the United States.
