NYU Dentistry Receives Gift from BioHorizons to Expand Access, Education for Implant Dentistry
Funding and Products Will Support Patient Care and Continuing Education Programs.
NYU College of Dentistry (NYU Dentistry) has received major funding and in-kind support from BioHorizons Implant Systems Inc. to make dental implants more accessible for patients in need and enhance the college’s continuing education programs. BioHorizons, part of Henry Schein Inc, is a leading global provider of dental implant and tissue regeneration products, according to the college.
The gift includes dental implant products developed and manufactured by BioHorizons, which will lower the cost of implant treatment for patients, including those treated at the NYU Dentistry Oral Health Center for People with Disabilities and NYU Dentistry Brooklyn Patient Care. The gift will also support the college’s newly launched Patient Care Access Fund, created to reduce financial barriers for those who would otherwise not be able to afford dental implants as part of their treatment plans.
The funding from BioHorizons will also support NYU Dentistry’s continuing education programs for oral health professionals, enabling the college to develop new offerings related to prosthodontics and implant dentistry.
