Hu-Friedy to donate up to $10,000 for Scholarships
Hu-Friedy, a global leader in the manufacturing of dental instruments and products, recently announced their partnership with the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA) for the “Nevi Canadian Tour 2012.” This program will raise scholarship funds to be put towards the Hu-Friedy CDHA Nevi Scholarship for the continuing education of dental hygienists.
In 2011, “Nevi,” a mascot resembling Hu-Friedy’s Nevi 4 posterior sickle scaler, raised $1000 for each state he visited in the U.S. during the successful “Host Nevi Tour 2011.” In 2012, he will travel around Canada from April to October, visiting dental practices, schools, and special events. The “Nevi Canadian Tour 2012” can raise up to $10,000.
In addition to attending CDHA events, there will be opportunities for Nevi to stay with “hosts” in different cities. Nevi’s hosts will be chosen from requests sent in by members of Friends of Hu-Friedy, Hu-Friedy’s online community for dental hygienists. Chosen hosts are asked to take Nevi around their hometown—from local monuments to their dental practice or school—and photograph him throughout his stay. After each visit, Nevi’s hosts share their photos and experiences on Nevi’s Facebook page, which currently has nearly 1,500 friends.
“We are proud of the Hu-Friedy Nevi Scholarship Program’s success, and look forward to its continued growth in Canada this year with the help of the CDHA,” Ken Serota, President of Hu-Friedy, said. “The Host Nevi Tour is a shining example of Hu-Friedy’s deep commitment to supporting dental practitioners through continuing education initiatives. We look forward to Nevi’s travels this year, but more importantly, we look forward to the impact we can make in the lives of more deserving dental hygienists.”

RACINE, WI – Science has shown that irrigants are more effective when they are electro-mechanically activated. Acoustic streaming and cavitation of endodontic solutions has been shown to significantly enhance cleansing of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient in creating acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
EndoUltra™ is the only cordless, compact, battery operated piezo ultrasonic (40kHz) activation device. Only EndoUltra™ is capable of producing acoustic streaming and cavitation in small canal spaces, resulting in significantly improved debridement, disruption of biofilm, improved penetration of irrigants into dentinal tubules, and the removal of vapor lock. Resulting in improved outcomes.
