Sealants for Smiles Sealants for Smiles is the only school-based dental sealants program in Utah. We provide oral health education and application of dental sealants to underserved Utah children. The program serves second and sixth grade children in Title I and low income schools, where more than 50% of children are eligible for free or reduced lunch. The program provides the following services:

1. Oral hygiene education for children.
2. Oral hygiene kits where each child receives a free toothbrush, floss and toothpaste.
3. Oral health screening.
4. Dental sealants.
5. Children with immediate needs are referred to low-cost or no-cost dental care.

Each classroom of 2nd and 6th grade teachers are responsible for obtaining health information and parental permission from the parents.
