Henry Schein is Australia’s largest dental distributor, stocking the widest range of products on the market. The company you know and trust today was formed in 2006 when Halas Dental and Henry Schein Regional came together. We maintain strong Australian management together with the commitment and partnership of Henry Schein, the world’s leading dental distributor. Most importantly, we are committed to being your trusted business partner, and promise you can always Rely on Us for all your dental needs.
Although the world is constantly changing this promise has not, and it stems from deep within our history. What we now know as Henry Schein, began over half a century ago in a small shop in Pitt Street, Sydney. Martin Halas believed in providing exceptional products, services and innovation.
In 1962, he changed the face of dentistry, introducing the Veneered Metal Crown (VMK) process. For the first time ever, dental technicians were able to build long-term, natural-looking restorations. From here, Halas Dental only grew. His strong passion for dental education meant he was the first in Australia to organise hands-on courses and what started as his small shop on Pitt Street, became a highly respected company world-wide.
The other half of our history began in Queens, New York in 1932, when Henry and Esther Schein founded a small pharmacy. In 1935, they introduced mail order which began the expansion of their business. Over the next eight decades, Henry Schein would grow from a small store, to the world’s largest provider of health care products to the dental, medical and veterinary industries. Their company, through its values and commitment to customers, has pioneered innovation and global change throughout the health sector.
Not only were Martin Halas and Henry and Esther Schein respected and successful business operators, but they saw their team as family and instilled this value in the working environment. The parallels that we can draw between the great foundations set by Halas Dental and Henry Schein, are testament to the importance of the synergy of our core values.
We have come a long way as a company since last century, but our values have not changed. At Henry Schein Halas, we are like family (albeit a little bigger than most!). Despite having our teams all across Australia, we work closely together every day to bring you the best products, service and advice.
Innovation has always been, and will always be, at the core of what we do. The dental industry and dental technology is constantly changing and we’re always looking to improve what we do, so that we can make it easy for you to stay ahead of the game. That’s why we partner with the best brands on the market.
Our sense of family continues through our global social responsibility program. We are committed to Helping Health Happen both here and abroad through the Henry Schein Cares Foundation. We partner with organisations, large and small, both in Australia and overseas, to bring oral health care to individuals and communities who need it most.
We have over 60 years’ experience providing you with innovation, education and solutions to your business, and we will continue to do this for many years to come.
