Free Dental Sealants for middle school and elementary students
BOUNDARY COUNTY — This month select middle school and elementary school students can receive free dental sealants and fluoride varnish to help prevent cavities, as part of Delta Dental of Idaho’s Grins on the Go Program.
Dental sealants fill the deep grooves of a child’s back teeth, where 90% of children’s cavities occur. The fluoride varnish helps protect the smooth surfaces of children’s teeth.
Grin on the Go clinics take place on-site at schools as part of Delta Dental of Idaho’s Community Outreach efforts.
Start date and students eligible:
Oct. 17, Valley View Elementary, first, second and fifth grade students.
Oct. 23, Mt. Hall Elementary, first, second and fifth grade students.
Oct. 24, Naples Elementary, first, second and fifth grade students.
Oct. 24, Boundary County Middle School, seventh and eighth grade students.
To receive these free cavity-prevention treatments, children must attend one of the listed schools and have a parent or guardian sign a health history and permission form. Permission forms can be obtained from the school.
The Grins on the Go clinic does not bill Medicaid or private insurance. There is no cost associated with this program.
