Duluth, Ga. USA, 19-11-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — Barco, a leader in healthcare visualization solutions, has donated its Eonis clinical specialty displays to support Henry Schein Practice Solutions’ brand new Center of Excellence featuring the latest in digital dental equipment and technologies. The new Center also showcases innovative products to new dentists.
In keeping with its philosophy of “Doing well by doing good,” Henry Schein’s new Center of Excellence not only represents a state-of-the-art headquarters for its Practice Solutions division, it provides free oral care to American Fork, Utah’s underprivileged population. Dentists from Share A Smile, a dental nonprofit based in Provo, Utah, work with Henry Schein to offer this dental care. As a supporter of philanthropy for medically underserved populations around the world, Barco eagerly donated nearly a dozen of its Eonis displays to the Center to facilitate patient exams, as well as dental training programs.
“We are grateful for Barco’s contribution to support our mission of providing innovative, integrated health care products and services that enable our dental professional volunteers to offer the best quality patient care while enhancing practice management and efficiency,” said Kevin Bunker, President, Henry Schein North America Dental Practice Solutions. “Barco’s medical displays significantly raise the bar for digital radiography, improving the ability of dentists to diagnose and treat patients more effectively.”
Built with dentists in mind
The Eonis display system includes the features that dentists need: precise images, exceptional cleanability, and an attractive, versatile design. It’s a welcome addition to any modern dentist’s office, helping to put patients at ease by presenting crystal clear, detailed diagnostic information to facilitate treatment planning. Its sleek, yet rugged design withstands the rigors of the dental practice, and the front glass panel is fully sealed to permit cleaning with 70 percent alcohol agents.
A collaborative approach to care
“We are honored to make a contribution to Henry Schein’s new Center of Excellence for use in its charitable dental services to the community, as well as in training new clinicians in digital dentistry,” comments Rob Liepse, Director of Business Development for Barco Healthcare. “Our displays are the perfect complement to today’s high-quality digital cone beam systems and HD cameras, presenting images of the utmost quality and precision to support more certain diagnosis.”
Henry Schein has also partnered with the Food and Care Coalition, the United Way and many local dentists and hygienists.
