    Key takeaways:

    • Dental sealants are highly effective in preventing cavities in the permanent back teeth of children.
    • Children from low income families are at high risk of teeth cavities but are less likely to have dental sealants compared to those from higher income families.
    • Providing dental sealants through school-based programs to the low-income children has been projected to save up to $300 million in dental treatment costs.

    State officials play an important role in increasing children’s access to school-based dental sealant programs (SPSP) in their states. Officials can target school-based sealant programs to the areas of greatest need in their state.
