Hu-Friedy Launches Subscription Scaler Sharpening Service

CHICAGO—Hu-Friedy recently announced the launch of EverCare, a new subscription-based scaler sharpening service for dental professionals.

Dental scalers and curettes lose their sharp edges with use, which can strain the joints and muscles of hygienists, increase patient discomfort, and complicate calculus removal. Dental practices should sharpen their instruments regularly, but many often fall behind due to demanding schedules and uncertainty about the proper way to sharpen.

Hu-Friedy estimates the cost for one hygienist to spend just one hour sharpening per week can cost a practice as much as $11,650 per year. EverCare takes the time-consuming task of sharpening out of the hands of hygienists. Less time spent sharpening instruments maximizes a hygienist’s time, enabling them to get back to their patients.

“Hygienists are being asked to do more for their patients in less time. As the daily responsibilities of hygienists just keep piling up, they are also expected to find time to sharpen their instruments. And yet sharp instruments are of critical importance for dental practices,” said Stacie Barth, senior director, global strategic business unit – periodontal and diagnostics, of Hu-Friedy. “We created EverCare to give hygienists their time back and to help dental practices deliver better care and become more profitable by improving efficiency. Our innovations in the areas of metallurgy and scaler manufacturing with EverEdge have developed a product that stays sharper longer. Even with these advancements, it remains important for clinicians to sharpen their instruments to improve performance and gain the added benefit of extending their useful life.”

Practices can join EverCare online, choosing among six membership levels, including pay-as-you-go and all-inclusive options. For more information, visit evercaresharpening.com.
