INSTRUMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM CYCLE
Optimal dental infection control and prevention are facilitated by the use of solutions that allow for improved efficiency and safety. Dental instrument integrity is further enhanced by the use of Hu-Friedy's Instrument Management System (IMS). IMS allows clinicians to move instruments from cleaning through chairside without touching or damaging the instruments. Learn more about our Instrument Management System.
