Henry Schein Orthodontics donates backpacks & school supplies to TYA students

The supplies will be split up between the program’s locations at Oceanside High School, El Camino High School, and the after school drop-in center at the Ditmar School.

Headquartered in New York, Henry Schein is the world’s largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners.

We cannot say thank you enough for this incredible donation.”
