Hu-Friedy, igniteDDS, and igniteDA – three leading voices in dental education – are teaming up to provide dental students and dental professionals with resources to excel in their careers. As part of the partnership, the organizations are formally announcing an exciting new video series, “In-Clinic at Hu-Friedy.”
Filmed at Hu-Friedy’s state-of-the-art showroom in Des Plaines, Illinois, the video series features a practical, hands-on approach to key topics in dentistry, such as ways to improve visual acuity, the dangers of re-tipping instruments, and best practices for infection prevention.
Hu-Friedy has a century-long history of supporting dental education by providing schools with specially-designed instrumentation kits and classroom demonstrations. The company also offers continuing education webinars, live lectures, and the Friends of Hu-Friedy online community. This video series and partnership is simply the latest manifestation of this ongoing commitment.
“Partnering with igniteDDS and igniteDA was an obvious choice,” says Hu-Friedy Chief Marketing Officer, Patrick Bernardi. “Hu-Friedy is dedicated to being a trusted and relevant part of our customers’ professional lives from the time they’re a student, to the point they transition into practice, and all the way through to retirement. By teaming up with igniteDDS and igniteDA, our three organizations can help the next generation of dental clinicians perform at their best.”
The videos are hosted by Dr. David Rice, the founder of igniteDDS, the nation’s largest community dedicated to bringing together dental students, new dentists, and seasoned professionals. The partnership also includes igniteDA, a sister network for dental assistants, founded by dental industry publisher and speaker Kevin Henry. These three organizations are focused on sharing cutting-edge insights and expertise to help dental professionals at all stages of their career succeed in the contemporary world of dentistry. In regard to dental assistants, Bernardi states, “Dental infection control is a critical component of patient and staff safety. The vital role that the dental assistant plays in this area cannot be overstated. Kevin Henry is a tireless advocate for this group and has developed a keen understanding of what these professionals do, and what they need to be effective. There is a significant amount of content in the In-Clinic video series that speaks to dental infection control and the practical steps that dental assistants can take to ensure their practice is contemporary, safe and efficient.”
