Earlier this month, Hu-Friedy, Chicago, launched a Web site for the dental hygiene community at www.friendsofhufriedy.com.

The online membership program allows dental hygienists to participate in product evaluations, share content and professional advice, and provide feedback for Hu-Friedy.

As the program grows, Hu-Friedy plans on offering free online CE courses for members. Members can also participate in a Hu-Points Program. The first 200 registrants will receive a complimentary Y-ME Curette to evaluate and keep.
