MELVILLE, N.Y. - Henry Schein, Inc., the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners, unveiled at the Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM) the Henry Schein ConnectDental® Pavilion, which brought together for the first time the industry's broadest array of open solutions designed to help any practice or laboratory enter the digital age.
For practitioners considering integrating digital technology solutions into their practice or laboratory, the Pavilion provided a full suite of innovative, integrated solutions, services and support, as well as global experts who have successfully incorporated digital dentistry and experienced increased efficiency and enhanced patient care.
Debuting for the first time at the GNYDM meeting, which took place at the Jacob K.

The Pavilion showcased open-architecture solutions ranging from digital intraoral scanners, milling and printing devices and materials, to Conebeam 3D imaging, practice management, and digital laboratory solutions. Visitors to the Pavilion also saw how Henry Schein's "Practice Analysis Tool" can help identify tailored solutions that meet the unique needs of a practice. In addition, the "ConnectDental Cafe" located within the Pavilion offered a comfortable spot for visitors to engage with visiting industry experts to learn how these visionaries have incorporated these digital solutions into their practice to deliver an enhanced patient experience.
