Review of Intellident Toothbrush Shield - keep your toothbrush protected from harmful bacteria

Disclosure: I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

Growing up and even now as an adult I have always kept my toothbrush in a toothbrush holder with the rest of my family and located away from the toilet. However, I always wondered in the back of my mind if this was good enough to keep harmful bacteria away. Even though I have thought about this I never looked into it. Lucky for me I was approached by IntelliDent to sample their toothbrush shield. I thought, “Why not?” It looked pretty cool and I wanted to see how it worked.

What is an IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield?

It is a breathable, quick-drying shield that acts as a surgical mask for your toothbrush. It prevents your toothbrush from being contaminated, which can occur when you store it in a cup/holder with other brushes. It can also occur just from being in a medicine cabinet or within a six-foot radius from a toilet. These shields have been laboratory tested as having a 99.9% effective barrier against airborne and surface bacteria.

What was my experience with using IntelliDent Toothbrush Shields?

Once I received the toothbrush shields I placed them on everyone in my household’s toothbrush after brushing our teeth that night. It was very easy to use. First, I peeled the package apart that the shield was inside of. Next, I slid my toothbrush inside of the surgical mask type shield. That was it! My toothbrush was now protected from surface and airborne microbes. The next morning when I took the shield off of my toothbrush it was dry and the bristles looked like new. I used the same shield for 7 days since this is the maximum amount of time that each shield stays effective.

Would I use IntelliDent Toothbrush Shields again?

Yes, definitely! I like knowing that I am protecting my family from unnecessary contaminants. Plus, I like how my toothbrush looks like I am using it for the first time each time I take the shield off.

These toothbrush shields are available for purchase at Walgreens,, and other leading pharmacy chains.

  1. My father is in the Dental Insurance industry so this speaks loudly to my heart. Might have to pick these up! What a fantastic idea. I always use cases when I travel, but never really thought about using them at home. Great idea!

    P.S. Loving your website! Glad we were able to get connected through Helene’s webinar!
