Dental Support Organizations

Hu-Friedy believes in building strong relationships, and providing an over-arching value to our business partner’s life and the lives of those who are affected by their decisions – Corporate, Doctors, Staff and Patients. Hu-Friedy is committed to understanding and adapting to the individual needs of each DSO and providing customers a full return on their investment. We do this by providing group practices additional opportunities in key areas including: standardization, efficiency and compliance, education, aiding in employee acquisition and retention, cost savings, and so much more.
 

 

STANDARDIZATION 
 

Streamlining the procurement process has never been easier with Hu-Friedy Instrument Management (IMS®)serving as your one-stop shop with over 10,000 instruments and products. Simplify your process by taking advantage of our pre-set procedural set ups, each created with various office specialties in mind. These IMS setups allow for discounted pricing and supplier consolidation – everything in one. Practices can also address infection control needs through Hu-Friedy’s vast line of infection control products, everything from a waterline cleaning system to medical-grade hand care, a dual enzyme ultrasonic cleaner, utility gloves and a vast array of sterilization products including sterilization containers.


EFFICIENCY AND COMPLIANCE  
 

Hu-Friedy’s IMS System also offers an integrated process to Special Markets with a high volume of patients. IMS allows for a reduced chance of error and helps avoid both contamination and injury. It also allows doctors and their staff additional time to focus on other value added activities. Hu-Friedy cassettes offer an equipment-run system rather than a people-run system, making on-boarding of new employees a seamless experience with limited delays during new employee integration. IMS also allows for easy transportation of instruments from one office to another and, if necessary, moving staff from office to office.
