Dental Sealants: A Resource Guide

Dental Sealants: A Resource Guide

The National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center at Georgetown University is pleased to announce a new resource:

Dental sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from cavities by covering them with a protective shield that blocks out germs and food.

This guide features materials on policy, practice guidance, professional education and training, public education, and state and local programs to help promote the use of dental sealants. It also includes descriptions of organizations that can provide additional support.
