Environdent® helps the dental industry recycle 10,000+ pounds of dental instruments in 2009!
CHICAGO, IL –Hu-Friedy customers recycled enough dental instruments in 2009 to equal the weight of two mid-size cars by participating in Hu-Friedy's Environdent® Instrument Recycling Program. Environdent allows customers to receive value for used, broken and retipped instruments, while keeping practices “green” by reducing the amount of instruments sent to landfills as waste. Instead, instruments are sent to metal scrap recyclers which use them for non-medical applications.
Available for over 14 years, the Hu-Friedy Environdent Program is a convenient way for clinicians to provide the highest-quality care for their patients while caring for the health of the planet as well. The program includes EverEdge® scalers and curettes, which feature a revolutionary stainless steel alloy that stays sharp longer for less frequent sharpening and greater comfort throughout the day. All Diagnostic instruments are also featured, including Hu-Friedy probes and explorers which feature specially blended stainless steel alloys to provide the optimal balance and tactile sensitivity to ensure reliable clinical outcomes. Recently, Piezo Tips were added to the program, including Symmetry Piezo Tips which are made with a special blend of stainless steel that optimizes vibration for superior scaling efficiency and unmatched durability.
