That might suffice for some, but here at Hu-Friedy our Masters are redefining the term. We offer a vast array of dental instruments, but have you ever wondered who is behind producing these instruments? Maintaining that precision? Ensuring that every single instrument shipped out is absolutely perfect? Behind all these instruments that you use are dedicated and incredibly talented men and women who possess the minds and the unique touch that ensure you have the perfect instruments that keep you performing at your best. 

At the end of the day, the patient is the priority. The patient not only expects a high level of attention and care, they need it. Our team of master artisans manufacture and assemble Hu-Friedy instruments knowing that they will be used with the utmost care on patients all around the world, so in turn, they apply the same care to the instruments they work on every day here at Hu-Friedy. Assembling cassettes like Antjuan Patterson or lasering like Sulema Duarte are just a couple everyday tasks for our team at Hu-Friedy that require that magical touch. Sharpening scalers, shaping working ends or instrument finishing are all different skills that take supremely talented individuals who have the ability to learn and yet also the ability to constantly improve. However, being an expert at their craft is just one aspect of what makes our team of Masters special.

We are a global brand, so it is only fitting that our team of artisans bring countless backgrounds to the table to support a worldwide reach like Hu-Friedy has. Our team of artisans come from all different parts of the world such as Lucia Rivera from Mexico City or Zofia Kulpa who was born in Poland. Dental care is a universal language transcending any one language, culture or background. Coming from various regions of the world makes perfecting Hu-Friedy instruments that much more of a priority to our team of Masters knowing exactly where they themselves have been and where the instruments they work on are going after they depart our manufacturing facility.
