School-Based Sealant Program
A sealant is a plastic coating that goes over permanent molars to protect them from decay. It’s one of the best things you can do to protect your child’s oral health.
Students in our target schools can get sealants added to their teeth during school. It takes less than 30 minutes. We also work with 6th and 7th grade students as their 12-year molars are coming in. We focus mostly on schools with a high percentage of children eligible for federal free or reduced-cost lunch programs.
