School Based Dental Sealants

Iowa Department of Public Health School-Based Sealants

Sealants are a protective plastic coating applied to the back teeth to help prevent cavities. Students attending certain schools in Cedar, Louisa and Muscatine counties receive dental sealants in the school setting. The students also receive oral health education and tooth brushing instruction, dental screenings, and sometimes fluoride varnish applications.  This service is funded by United Way of Muscatine, Muscatine Charities, Inc. and the Iowa Department of Public Health.

School children in the second, third, sixth and seventh grades are eligible to have sealants. A dentist and dental hygienist travel to schools to screen children for tooth decay and the dental hygienist then places dental sealants as needed.
