MELVILLE, N.Y.—Henry Schein recently announced today that it is a founding sponsor of Women in DSO, a nonprofit organization supporting the empowerment and growth of women leaders in dental support organizations (DSOs). Through this relationship, the company is supporting the inaugural Women in DSO event, “Empower and Grow 2022,” on March 9–11, in Las Vegas.

Henry Schein is sponsoring the event’s keynote speaker, Bonnie St. John, the first African-American to win medals in the Winter Olympic competition, collecting a silver and two bronze medals at the 1984 Winter Paralympics in Innsbruck, Austria. In addition to being a Paralympic athlete, St. John graduated with honors from Harvard, won a Rhodes Scholarship, and was appointed by President Bill Clinton as a director of the White House National Economic Council. She will be presenting on Thursday, March 10, 2022.

“As a founding sponsor of Women in DSO and as part of Henry Schein’s dedication to helping catalyze innovative change for the industries we serve, we are excited to support the inaugural Women in DSO event by sponsoring the keynote speaker, Bonnie St. John,” said AJ Caffentzis, president of the U.S. Dental Group at Henry Schein. “At Henry Schein, we recognize the importance of women in leadership and diversity and inclusion, and by partnering with Women in DSO we are strengthening our commitment to empowering women in the dental industry.”

Henry Schein will also deliver a leadership session titled, “Finding Your Voice,” led by Jackie Miller, president and CEO of Bespoken Partners, on Thursday, March 10. The interactive session will provide techniques on how to communicate powerfully and purposefully in a professional setting. In addition to the event, the company will support women throughout the industry through strategic networking opportunities, professional mentorship, specialized education and a growing network of resources. Furthermore, Kathleen Titus, business development director for strategic accounts at Henry Schein, will serve as a founding board member of Women in DSO, representing the company.

“Women in dentistry have continued to make countless contributions and innovations in the dental industry,” said Titus. “We support women leaders in this field, and by collaborating with Women in DSO, we have the opportunity to further our efforts in recognizing the current and future women leaders in DSOs.”
