School-Based Sealant Program
Seal! ND School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program
In 2012, The North Dakota Department of Health, Oral Health Program (OHP) implemented the Seal! ND School-based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program. Public health dental hygienists visit schools two times a year (fall and spring) and provide direct preventive services, under standing orders of a dentist which include: oral health education, a screening, dental sealant and fluoride varnish application. A parent/guardian signed consent form is required to participate in the Seal! ND fluoride varnish and dental sealant program.
Services are provided to schools that are recognized as being in need by the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Students attending pre-kindergarten through 12th grade (depending upon the school) with parent/guardian consent are eligible to receive the free oral health services. A goody bag consisting of a result sheet (what the child had done), toothbrush, toothpaste and floss will be provided to each child that is seen. In the West Fargo area, Maple Family Dental will be providing the services. Watch for more information to come!
