Mission: “Improving lives through better dentistry—smile after smile”

Hu-Friedy’s mission is the same today as it has always been – to help dental professionals perform at their best. In order to do that, we have to be at our best, too, because better dentistry starts with us – and we take that responsibility very seriously.

We concentrate on designing, manufacturing and distributing superior dental instruments and products, which has made us the world’s leading dental manufacturer. It doesn’t end there, though. We pride ourselves on forging relationships with the dental professionals who choose Hu-Friedy, starting when they are students and continuing through their entire careers. In order to maintain our presence in their lives, we are constantly creating new products and new opportunities for them to deliver the best care to patients.
