BSP Relationship with Henry Schein

British Society of Periodontology and Henry Schein Partnership Programme. The BSP has devised a scheme with Henry Schein whereby members of the Society can, if they wish, buy dental products at preferential rates. This scheme will benefit both the BSP and individual members, as well as providing Henry Schein with the opportunity to participate in BSP activities. This will be of advantage to all with no additional cost to members, and in fact the Society will benefit through an annual donation to our Fellowship Fund from Henry Schein. In addition, there are specific projects on which our two organisations can co-operate that will increase the awareness of Periodontology as a Specialty and promote Periodontology amongst newly qualified dentists. The scheme is a preferred purchasing programme in which members may participate. This will involve: 1. An initial meeting with a Henry Schein Consultant to set up a bespoke purchasing programme for their practice: this should reduce purchasing costs. 2. A discount of 5% on handpiece and small equipment repairs. 3. A discount of 10% on preventive maintenance visits by Henry Schein technicians. 4. Free welcome pack of £300 of Henry Schein brand materials for each surgery following the Consultant's review. We would like to emphasise that joining this scheme is voluntary, there is no subscription, it is solely for BSP members, and will cost you less for all the products you use, not just periodontal products. At the same time the BSP's charitable activities will benefit greatly at no additional cost to members. Please note that this scheme will entitle a whole practice to participate provided one person is a member of the Society. All members should be receiving a mailing regarding this very soon.
