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.”

There remains a growing belief among clinicians that obturation is to blame for endodontic failures. This notion has more recently fallen under scrutiny as researchers have discovered that the most thorough obturation can only reflect the quality of the cleaning and shaping of the canal. In fact, a number of researchers point to the thorough use of irrigants — making sure that the debris and irrigant itself are lifted completely out of the canal, not forced out the apex — as the most important determinant in the long-term success of an endodontic procedure.
