Henry Schein Inc., a provider of healthcare products and services to office-based dental and medical practitioners, has acquired S.I.N. Implant System, a Brazil-based manufacturer of dental implants, from Southern Cross Group.

Based in São Paulo and founded in 2003, S.I.N. manufactures a line of products used for performing dental implant procedures and is focused on driving the development of value-priced dental implants. The company recently expanded the distribution of its products into the U.S. and other international markets. Henry Schein has served dental practitioners in Brazil since 2014, and the acquisition of S.I.N. will mark the company’s entry into Brazil’s dental implant market.

“The acquisition of S.I.N. represents the natural progression of our BOLD+1 Strategy to expand our fast-growing dental specialties businesses, where we have a proven track record of successful acquisitions resulting in profitable growth in addition to our internal growth,” comments Stanley Bergman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Henry Schein. “We are delighted to partner with S.I.N. and believe that through our combined resources, we will be well-positioned to address the growing demand for implants and bone regeneration products in both the developed and emerging markets.”
