National Dental Association (NDA) has partnered with Class Action Capital, A market leader in managing class action settlement claims to assist NDA members with optimizing recoveries in class action settlements.

Many healthcare providers do not have the time or resources available to properly file and manage a settlement claim, and as National Dental Association partner, Class Action Capital will work on your behalf in coordination with NDA, in order to submit fully comprehensive claims while minimizing the use of your time, internal resources and the risk of mistake if you were to take on claims management on your own. Through our partnership with NDA, Class Action Capital will identify both healthcare, as well as non-healthcare, recovery opportunities, ensuring your organization does not miss out on often unknown recovery opportunities.

Henry Schein Dental Supply Class Action

The Federal Trade Commission recently filed a complaint against Henry Schein alleging it violated antitrust laws through Benco Dental Supply Company and Patterson Companies. In our opinion and experience, the U.S. government only brings cases when they have strong evidence of bad behavior. Also in our opinion and experience, civil settlements are more likely when a strong government case has been filed.

​As the investigation is still ongoing there is no settlement amount or claim filing deadline.
