Free dental sealants offered for students

Print Article

Helping to prevent cavities for Idaho children. Beginning March 5, Valley View Elementary School 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. Naples Elementary School and Mount Hall Elementary Schools will begin the program on March 12 for first and second graders.

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 Valley View, Naples, or Mount Hall Elementary 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.

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