2024 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting – Interview with Debbie Zafiropoulos, who discusses Armis Biopharma's "Trifecta of Dental Infection Control."


CDS Midwinter Meeting 2024 Interview with Debbie Zafiropoulos of Armis Biopharma, who discusses a trio of new infection control products. [3 minutes].

Video Transcript:

Hi, good afternoon. This is Debbie Zafiropoulos. I am so excited to be here at Chicago Midwinter meeting. I think I've been coming to this meeting for over 20 years, and the thing that impresses me the most is being involved in new product launches.

So, I'm here with Armis Biopharma, a biopharma company in Fort Collins, Colorado, where I've had the opportunity—it's not even an opportunity—I've had the greatest pleasure to use my background in oral health and wellness to bring products to market and the thing that we're most impressed upon is keeping the chain of infection control solid.

So, Armis Biopharma has a trifecta in infection control. It is ArmiClenz® which is a surface disinfectant. It is a hand sanitizer called ArmiCare®. And it's our oral appliance solution [ArmiGard™] that kills a variety of bacteria that harbor on appliances, sleep apnea devices, CPAP machines, your children's pacifiers, your baby bottles, your mouth guards if you're playing sports. What we want to do with Armis Biopharma is to bring to our community, the most non-toxic approach to infection control.

So, we're happy…This is our travel safe defense kit and just as I said earlier, when you're on an airplane, think about who was touching the seatbelt that was sitting there or the table that was in front of you. You have an opportunity to use a spray and within 3 minutes killing any of the bacteria that would cause a cross contamination. We certainly want you to get to your destination happier, healthier, and with the ability to use something that's non-toxic.

Our proprietary formula is peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide stabilized, which means that over a period of time as you're using it on your surfaces, for example, you don't have to worry about corrosion or explosion or breaking down or discoloring any of the materials, whether it's on your countertop or on your upholstered chairs.

Imagine using an oral appliance solution like ArmiGard that will kill bacteria within a 10-minute kill time of the rhinovirus or even COVID—things that we’re concerned about. But think about yeast or fungus or those bacteria that cause odor that your patients [then] don't want to use their aligners or their dentures. You have a spray that you can dispense within your practice to eliminate all that, and it makes you as a professional, the expert in overall health and wellness for your patients. Isn't that what they're coming to you for?

So, definitely take a look at armigardusa.com, and look at our parent company, Armis Biopharma.

Make sure you have an opportunity to stop by and get our travel safe defense kits. We are dispensing these out to our practices. So, you have a complete opportunity for non-toxic infection control in your practice. This is Debbie's Zafiropoulos. Thank you for this opportunity. We look forward to helping you service your practice and continue the best care that you can for your patients.
