Following Cantel’s acquisition of Hu-Friedy in October of 2019, the HuFriedyGroup is now the Dental Division of Cantel, encompassing the Crosstex, Accutron, SPSmedical, Palmero Healthcare, J&J Instruments, and Hu-Friedy brands.  

“When we agreed to be acquired by Cantel, we knew it would be important that the identity of our dental division reflect the larger value that we are able to bring to the industry,” said Ron Saslow, chairman of the HuFriedyGroup. 

“We are excited about where we landed and feel that our new name reflects our desire to direct our combined resources and talent to provide more value to our customers and partners, as well as the patients who count on manufacturers, distributors, and dental professionals to deliver safe conditions and optimal clinical care,” said Saslow.

“In a world that gets more complex every day in terms of compliance and infection prevention, we feel that HuFriedyGroup is uniquely positioned through expertise, focus, and solutions to emerge as an essential global partner in the area of infection prevention solutions,” said Ken Serota, president of HuFriedyGroup. 

“We continue to see breaches and realize the challenges dental practices face in understanding and adapting to compliance standards. We feel we are uniquely suited to provide guidance, education, and solutions in this area,” said Serota.

“With HuFriedyGroup, we can address critical intersections of performance and protection needs for the modern dental professional, which range from instrumentation to personal protection equipment, instrument management solutions, waterline maintenance, and biological and chemical monitoring,” said Serota.
