Hu-Friedy to Showcase Infection Prevention Protocols With “The GreenLight Challenge” at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting


Friday, February 15, 2019

February 15, 2019 (Chicago) – Hu-Friedy, the global leader in dental instrument manufacturing and infection prevention solutions, will offer several engaging learning experiences for dental professionals attending the annual Chicago Midwinter Meeting. Key among these will be “The GreenLight Challenge: An Interactive Experience,” which will test attendees’ knowledge on current standards for infection prevention protocols.

In this interactive game, participants will be presented with a series of typical scenes they might encounter in their dental practice. They will then be asked to identify which parts of the scene are not compliant with infection prevention protocols and best practices. Participants will be eligible for free giveaways and can win prizes such as an Apple Watch, AirPods, and $500 in Hu-Friedy goods. The GreenLight Challenge is meant to emphasize the incredible information and insight available through the new GreenLight Dental Compliance Center™ by Hu-Friedy. This one-of-a-kind resource provides members with a convenient online portal containing everything a dental practice needs to develop and maintain a compliant infection prevention program.

Attendees at the Midwinter Meeting are also invited to visit the Hu-Friedy “Cutting Edge Corner” to explore the latest in instrument sharpening best practices. A major highlight is EverCare, a new subscription-based scaler sharpening service that keeps Hu-Friedy instruments at peak performance. Dental professionals who join EverCare at the Midwinter Meeting will enjoy exclusive offers, including free instruments and a 10% discount when they take advantage of instrument bundling options.

Also in the Cutting Edge Corner, attendees will be able to try out the Hu-Friedy Sharpening Assistant, a helpful educational tool available on Amazon Echo devices that provides step-by-step instructions for sharpening any Hu-Friedy scaler or curette.

Additionally, Hu-Friedy will offer live, hands-on courses that explore AIRFLOW® Therapy, a groundbreaking new approach to biofilm removal. Attendees will experience for themselves how AIRFLOW is more effective and efficient than traditional approaches to cleaning and scaling, saving clinicians an impressive average of 12 minutes per treatment.

Hu-Friedy will host a meet-and-greet for this year’s winners of Show Us Your Purple. This annual event was created by Hu-Friedy to celebrate the dedicated dental hygienists who are on the frontlines of oral care every day. Hu-Friedy treats the winners of the event to an all-expenses-paid trip to Chicago, a tour of the Hu-Friedy manufacturing facilities, and passes to the Chicago Midwinter Meeting.
