School-Based Dental Preventive Services
Our school-based program provides preventive dental sealants, oral hygiene education, dental screening and referral to private dentists as appropriate. These services are offered free of charge to all children in grades K – 8 at selected schools. Schools are selected based on the percentage of students at the school receiving free and reduced lunches. Schools with more than 50% of students receiving free lunches can be selected for the program.
