Hu-Friedy Debuts Online Resource to Help Dental Practices Improve Infection Control
Hu-Friedy has announced the release of an online resource to help dental professionals stay on top of infection-prevention standards to protect the safety of their patients and staff while avoiding violations that can jeopardize their practices.

The GreenLight Dental Compliance Center provides an online portal that contains everything a dental practice needs to develop and maintain a compliant infection-prevention program. After logging in to the GreenLight portal, dental professionals can set up personalized protocols by answering questions about their current procedures. For guidance, the portal provides comprehensive and up-to-date information on compliance, including state board regulations, product information and safety data sheets, training videos, insights on the infection prevention coordinator role and other topics.

Additionally, dental practices can self-assess their compliance through GreenLight’s self-audit system. The audit system provides immediate feedback, and practices can save their audits for future review.
