Under Mr. Bergman’s leadership, Henry Schein played a pivotal role in helping to develop the organization during its inception in 1991. Mr. Bergman has continued to be a thought leader for inclusive health by recognizing the importance of NNOHA at its founding and supporting its goal of strengthening and expanding the nation’s oral health safety-net system.
“On behalf of Team Schein, it is an honor to receive this recognition from NNOHA, a partner that has helped pave the way for access to care for underserved populations across the country,” said Mr. Bergman. “NNOHA’s mission to provide oral health care for the most vulnerable individuals in our society aligns with our belief that all people deserve access to quality health care. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the organization for years to come.”
Henry Schein has collaborated with the organization on the initial development of the NNOHA website and to create the “How to Build a Community Dental Clinic” guide, a resource for building a new community health center. The Company also joined forces with NNOHA to create the Corporate Advisory Committee, a board of dental industry partners committed to helping NNOHA succeed through financial support and in-kind resources. To support Community Health Centers (CHCs) and their unique organizational requirements, Henry Schein also added CHC features into Dentrix, its market-leading dental practice management software that provides solutions for both the clinical and business side of a dental practice. The features, built for community and public health centers, allow organizations to enhance patient care and organizational efficiency.
Since 1991, NNOHA has grown from nine members to more than 3,500 active members with the support of Henry Schein.
“I am delighted to present Mr. Bergman with the NNOHA President’s Award,” said Dr. Scott Wolpin, President, NNOHA Board of Directors. “The generosity from Henry Schein and Mr. Bergman’s visionary thinking has enabled us at NNOHA to contribute to the success of oral health providers in community health centers across the country, and we are so appreciative that Henry Schein has been with us every step of the way.”
NNOHA is dedicated to increasing access to care for all, regardless of circumstances, and its vision is to have a future in which individuals and communities have the ability to receive high quality oral health services. NNOHA works to raise awareness of the importance of oral health to overall health and its mission is to improve the oral health of underserved populations through leadership, advocacy, and by providing support to oral health providers in safety-net systems.
National Network for Oral Health Access (NNOHA) was founded in 1991 by a group of Dental Directors from Federally Qualified Community Health Centers who identified a need for peer-to-peer networking, collaboration, research and support in running effective oral health program. From those humble beginnings, NNOHA’s current membership of more than 3,700 represents the full diversity of safety-net oral health providers and has become a leader in strengthening and supporting the oral health safety-net. NNOHA envisions a future in which individuals and communities are aware of the importance of oral health to overall health, engage in recommended oral health practices, and receive affordable, high quality oral health services. Achieving this vision requires everyone to have access to care, regardless of income or geography. NNOHA’s mission is to improve the oral health of underserved populations and contribute to overall health through leadership, advocacy, and support to oral health providers in safety-net systems.
