Livingston, NJ, USA – Wand Dental Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Milestone Scientific, Inc., announced that it has received an initial stocking order from Henry Schein, Inc. for The Wand® STA® Computer-Assisted Anaesthesia System. The stocking order enables Henry Schein to complete customer purchase requests for The Wand System and related disposable handpieces from its dental customers in the US and Canada, beginning 2016.
To help educate its customers about the benefits of The Wand, Henry Schein is training specific members of its sales team to become experts in the features and benefits of the System. Henry Schein will also continue to distribute the disposables for Wand Dental, Inc.’s legacy anaesthesia system, The Compudent®.
The Wand STA is the first and market-leading computer-controlled local anaesthesia system, with over 50 million injections performed worldwide. The Wand® performs both traditional and newer dental anaesthesia injections in a more effective and comfortable way for both the patient and the provider. The instrument utilises patented technologies like computer-regulated flow rates, Dynamic Pressure Sensing (DPS®), and a uniquely ergonomic handpiece to enable significant improvements over the traditional dental syringe, which has remained virtually unchanged for over 160 years.
Gian Domenico Trombetta, CEO of Wand Dental, Inc. commented, “This arrangement expands on an already long and productive relationship with Henry Schein. It will enable us to leverage our patented injection technologies with Henry Schein’s field representatives and their unparalleled access, relationships, and marketing platforms in the professional dental segment in the US and Canada. We are excited to work closely with Henry Schein to expand the market for The Wand STA as we believe there is large opportunity in the domestic US and Canadian markets for growth.”
