School-Based Dental Sealant Programs: Second Edition

Please Note: This curriculum was developed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and may not reflect current guidance for materials, procedures, and infection control.

Welcome to School-Based Dental Sealant Programs: Second Edition, 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 are available for two continuing education (CE) credits if you are a dentist or dental hygienist licensed in Ohio or for a certificate of completion if you are not licensed in Ohio. Or take the post-tests for self-assessment (no credit or certificate). There is no charge.
