This event, which took place November 5 though November 8, 2023 in Denver, Colorado, is specifically designed to provide insight and resources on how to provide better patient care, according to a press release from Henry Schein. Henry Schein Director, Community Health Centers and Corporate Relations, Kathleen Titus, expressed the value of NNOHA’s relationship with Henry Schein.
“NNOHA and Henry Schein have a shared value of helping communities increase access to oral health care, and we are pleased to yet again participate in its annual conference,” Titus says in the press release. “We are dedicated to helping [community health centers] continue to elevate and expand care throughout communities in the United States. As the paramount national voice for 6 million health center dental patients in the country, NNOHA is validating that a healthy smile is a fundamental right, not a privilege.”
