Tooth decay (or cavities) is the most common chronic disease of childhood, yet it is largely a preventable disease. Tooth decay is more common than asthma and hay fever, and if left untreated, can cause abscesses, tooth loss, low self esteem, weight issues and even death in children. That’s why the Tennessee Department of Public Health is focusing efforts on primary prevention of the disease through the School Based Sealant Program.

The program offers free preventive dental services to children in grades K-8 in the school setting. Services include oral health education, oral exams and screenings, referrals for care, follow-up of immediate need, dental sealants, fluoride varnish application, and Sliver Diamine Fluoride application, if needed.

Schools with 50 percent or more of its enrolled students on free and reduced lunch are eligible for the program. A list of 2021-2022 target schools receiving dental services for this year is available.
