VERO BEACH, FLA July 21, 2014 In Philadelphia, IntelliDent will continue with its initiative and donate hundreds of toothbrush shields to the two Ronald McDonald House Facilities and Ronald McDonald family Rooms at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope The cornerstone program, the Ronald McDonald House, provides a home away from home that offers comfort and care to families with children receiving treatment at local hospitals and medical facilities in Philadelphia and the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide comprehensive and compassionate hospitality and support to oncology and cardiac patients’ families while they are providing care and support to their child in the hospital.
IntelliDent’s founder, Susan Klinsport, is a native of the Philadelphia area. “We started donating last year and are dedicated to continue to support this amazing Organization”. To show their support, IntelliDent, with its Toothbrush Shield, will join the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House in supporting the improvement of the health and well-being of children and families by donating The IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield as an amenity placed in their Facilities.
The Toothbrush Shield provides protection by prevention. It is a breathable, quick drying shield that acts like a surgical mask for your toothbrush. Laboratory tested to be 99.9 percent effective against airborne and surface bacteria, it helps prevent re-entry of bacteria into the mouth. Studies show an exposed toothbrush is at risk for contamination when stored in a shared cup or holder with other brushes, enclosed in a dark space that can breed germs, or stored in close proximity to a toilet, which can contaminate within a six-foot radius.
Parents and families staying at the Ronald McDonald House face many challenges with continuous care and concern for their stricken children and limited time for their own personal care. The IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield provides some comfort and added precaution in controlling contamination and spread of germs.
Through research and development, IntelliDent brings to market oral care products designed to make life’s simple routines healthier by utilizing ”Protection as Means of Prevention”. IntelliDent’s flagship product, The Toothbrush Shield, is redefining and creating a new category for oral care. IntelliDent, a division of E4 Technologies, was founded in 2010 by Susan Klinsport of Vero Beach, Florida.
