Hu-Friedy’s Infection Control E-Books

In summer 2017, Hu-Friedy embarked on an ambitious mission: to simplify infection control and to present the topic in a comprehensive, informative, and engaging medium. Hu-Friedy’s infection control e-books have proven to be a popular way for clinicians to learn about the fast-changing world of infection control, as well as to gain insight into how the most efficient practices handle instrument reprocessing. The first book in the series discusses the pivotal role of an infection control coordinator, while the second discusses the regulations of instrument reprocessing and the best and most efficient practices from transportation through sterilization. The most recent e-book in the series, The Journey to Better, looks at the biggest challenges facing a practice and identifies solutions, providing guidance on efficiency, time management, and staffing. Visitors to Hu-Friedy’s booth will be able to discuss what they’ve learned in the e-book series as well as ask any follow-up questions they may have.


The NEW Friends of Hu-Friedy Community

Dental hygiene professionals will want to make a beeline for the Hu-Friedy booth to discover the all-new Friends of Hu-Friedy online community. The new site features community user groups, discussions, crowd-sourced answers, new user levels and badges, and more ways than ever to earn Hu-Points. The site is not only a hygienist’s go-to for skills development, news, and community support, it’s also just plain fun! To bring some of the fun to CMW, Friends of Hu-Friedy representatives will be on-site with their prize vending machine, and will also be available to answer questions about the community.

Facebook LIVE Event With Darby Dental

Of course, Hu-Friedy realizes that not every dental professional can make it to Chicago for CMW. But just because they can’t visit the booth in person doesn’t mean they have to miss out! On Thursday, February 22 at 11 am CST, Hu-Friedy and Darby Dental will partner for a Facebook Live event. In this livestream, we’ll lay out the truth (and bust the myths) about rubber dam clamps. This event will highlight exactly how they work, why they’re important, and a few facts that may surprise. Additionally, we’ll discuss why Hu-Friedy’s Black Line rubber dam clamps may be a better option when compared with standard stainless steel clamps.

February sometimes feels like the longest month of the year, but the three days at CMW will fly by! Hu-Friedy is excited to meet up with dentists, hygienists, and other dental professionals for a meeting jam-packed with networking, education, and news. Most of all, though, we’re excited to see YOU at the Hu-Friedy booth. See you there!
