photo of childrenWelcome to School-Based Dental Sealant Programs, a series of modules designed to ensure that school-based dental sealant program staff have a thorough understanding of the history, operations, and underlying principles of these programs.

The modules provide detailed guidelines for infection control in school-based programs; discuss tooth selection and assessment for dental sealants; review the dental sealant application process; and provide information about program operations, with an emphasis on the specific requirements that apply to programs funded by the Ohio Department of Health.

Post-Tests: Post-tests are available in two formats: for no credit (for your own self-assessment) and for 2 continuing education (CE) credits if you are a dentist or dental hygienist licensed in Ohio. There is no charge for CE credits.

Support for development of the curriculum was provided by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (grant number H47MC01924), Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to the Ohio Department of Health, Oral Health Section.
