Henry Schein is a founding sponsor of Women in DSO, a nonprofit organization supporting women leaders in DSOs.

Henry Schein announced that it is a founding sponsor of Women in DSO, the official nonprofit organization supporting the empowerment and growth of women leaders in dental support organizations (DSOs).

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.

As a sponsor, Henry Schein will support the inaugural Women in DSO event, “Empower and Grow 2022,” on March 9-11, 2022, at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Henry Schein will also sponsor 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.

“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 chief executive officer of Bespoken Partners. 

The interactive session will provide techniques on communicating 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. 

“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.”
