​Henry Schein Dental UK is again offering its customers the opportunity to join the company’s fight against cancer through its Practice Pink programme.

By purchasing a range of pink products through the Practice Pink programme, customers help support the company’s efforts to raise awareness and support a cure for breast cancer and other cancers.

In October, a portion of sales from these pink products is donated to Cancer Research UK to support research, prevention efforts, and early detection of the disease, and to help improve access to care.

Cancer Research UK wants survival in the UK to be among the best in the world. The organisation focuses their efforts in four key areas – working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective. The organisation’s work is funded solely by donations.

Now in its 12th year, the Practice Pink programme has raised more than $1.5 million for the fight against cancer. In recent years, the programme has expanded to Europe, where Team Schein Members have teamed with supplier partners and non-governmental organizations to support people battling cancer. Practice Pink is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility programme.

'Year after year, our customers and supplier partners overwhelmingly demonstrate their support for the fight against cancer through their participation in Henry Schein’s annual Practice Pink programme, and it is rewarding to look back and see what we’ve been able to accomplish together,' said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein.

'We will continue to support the people and organisations working for a cure, and we look forward to many more years of "helping health happen" together.'
