Equipment Guide

PURELL Surface Disinfectant offers no tradeoffs between safety and efficacy! Compared with other products, PURELL Surface Disinfectant has powerful germ kill, with no glove or rinse requirements. Using the power of alcohol, it disinfects bacteria and viruses in as little as 30 seconds. Additionally, it has the lowest EPA toxicity rating, which means there are no precautionary statements or warnings.

With rapid kill and dry times, by the time the product dries, the germs have been killed, making it possible to turn over a room very quickly. PURELL Healthcare Surface Disinfectant is effective on most hard and soft surfaces, including plastics, porcelain, metals, laminate, granite, upholstery, sealed wood, vinyl, Corian®, stainless steel and hand piece tubing.

The EPA classifies products by Categories 1-4. Products considered EPA Category 3 or lower are less safe and should include warning labels and precautionary statements. Many of these products also require dental professionals to use personal protective equipment and wash their hands after use. Some may also contain harsh fumes from bleach or other active ingredients. Fragrance-free, PURELL Surface Disinfectant is in Category 4 – the safest category.

Clinicians can determine whether the PURELL Surface Disinfectant is right for their dental practice by considering the following:

  • How do I feel about my current surface disinfectant? Am I concerned about contact times and kill claims?
  • Am I concerned that my current product is harming my equipment?
  • Would a surface disinfectant with no glove or rinse requirements make my practice safer and more efficient?

Some dentists may question whether it’s practical to purchase PURELL Surface Disinfectant:

  • “We are currently buying surface wipes and they work fine.”
    • PURELL Surface Disinfectant is safe and effective. It has powerful germ kill, with no glove or rinse requirements, making it especially convenient for your staff to use. You are guaranteed to reduce the risk of infection without harming your equipment.
