FSE students to get dental sealants

Print Article

SANDPOINT — Beginning April 22, Farmin Stidwell Elementary first- and second-graders 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.

Grins on the Go clinics take place on-site at schools as part of Delta Dental of Idaho’s community outreach efforts.

To receive these free cavity-prevention treatments, children must attend Farmin Stidwell Elementary 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.

For more information, please call Delta Dental Community Outreach at 208-489-3541.

Delta Dental is a not-for-profit organization seeking to improve the dental health of all Idahoans through its community outreach programs.
