HSCB will offer a wide variety of products and services that will help dental practices engage their patients, enabling interactions with their brand in a variety of ways. Curated products will include uniforms and apparel, promotional products (drinkware, writing instruments, magnets, lip balm, hand sanitizer, reusable face coverings) and signage, appointment reminder cards and other printed items.
HSCB products are available online at Shop.HenryScheinCustomBranding.com. Through this platform, Henry Schein customers will be able to search for and customize promotional products for their individual practices, and have them shipped directly to their business.
