NEW ORLEANS, La., USA: To date, three trips to Treasure Beach, Jamaica, have been conducted by volunteer endodontists and endodontic residents under the Outreach Program of the Foundation for Endodontics. Now, thanks to support from Henry Schein, these trips will be expanding to four times per year.

The announcement was made at AAE17 in New Orleans by Dr. Peter A. Morgan, president of the Foundation for Endodontics, and John Ferone, senior director, global endodontic category management at Henry Schein, who told Endo Tribune that Henry Schein’s support of the outreach coincides with the company’s overall commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Morgan told Dental Tribune that the volunteers performed 120 free root canal treatments on the first three trips alone, emphasizing the need for care in this part of the world.
