Sealants for Smiles is pleased to report on the services we have provided from our beginning, July 1, 2007 through December 31, 2012.

308 Weekly school clinics
64,200 Children participated in oral health education
35,265 Children were evaluated by a Utah licensed dental professional
85,690 dental sealants have been placed on 25,012 at-risk Utah children
More than $6 million worth of dental services provided at no cost to parent or school
Conservative estimate: More than $75 million 'cost of care' prevented
The unmet dental needs have decreased from 51% in 2007 to 28% in 2012

Decay incidence is 3.0% (or stated another way, 97.0% of the children had no evidence of dental decay on the sealed teeth!)

A special thank you to all the people, organizations, communities, schools, volunteers, employees and professionals who have made it possible for us to make a difference. For more information on how you can contribute please visit
